(Jun 02, 2008) Libyan legal activists and politicians recently warned against the enactment of a proposed new penal code, claiming it infringes on public liberties, and asked for constitutional guarantees protecting rights and liberties. Participants in a discussion organized by the Bar Association of Tripoli confirmed their commitment to abolishing the death penalty, except in the case of intentional homicides. They also recommended the enactment of a constitution that guarantees rights and liberties. (Libyan Law Professionals Warn Against Enactment of the New Penal Code, ALJAZEERA, May 24, 2008.)
