Official visit of Benita Ferrero-Waldner to Libya
Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, travelled to Benghazi and Tripoli, Libya, on 24 and 25 May 2005. During her stay, she met Muammar al-Gaddafi, Guide of the Great Revolution of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, and they discussed how to advance EU-Libyan relations, including under the Barcelona Process, and raised the case of Bulgarian and Palestinian medical workers under sentence of death in Libya. Her trip has also been an opportunity to raise international awareness of the Benghazi AIDS tragedy. She explained to the Libyan side work underway to implement the EU-sponsored Action Plan in favour of those affected by HIV/AIDS in the country. She met children suffering from HIV/AIDS in Benghazi and their families, as well as Libyan medical personnel. She also visited the Bulgarian and Palestinian medical workers in their prison in Tripoli. 5 Bulgarians and 1 Palestinian have been in prison in Libya since the outbreak of HIV/AIDS at the Benghazi hospital in the late 1990’s. The EU has repeatedly expressed serious reservations about the basis on which they have been prosecuted and tried, their treatment in prison, and delays in the process. The EU currently has no formal relations with Libya, but decided in October 2004 to respond to significant developments in Libya with a new policy of engagement. Libya was invited in 1999 to join the Barcelona Process, and in 2004 indicated its intention to join, though no formal request has been made.
