ISLAMABAD: More than 15,000 Pakistanis who are detained in Libyan jails for seven months are waiting for the government’s help.

According to media reports, the Pakistani nationals who were trying to cross into Europe are detained in Libyan jails.

In a video that went viral on social media, a prisoner revealed that several prisoners are sick and some of them are in critical condition.

He said that kids are also among the other prisoners and they neither have any access to medicine nor food which is life-threatening.

Human smugglers brought them here in the hope to cross into Europe but they were left in Libya and were later detained by the Libyan authorities, he added.

The prisoner appealed to PM Shehbaz Sharif to help them otherwise they would die in jail. The Justice help line ambassador Mian Mobeen Akhtar also appealed to the government to take measures for their immediate release.
