For decades now, the ports of Libya have been an avenue for illegal immigrants to find their way into Europe via Italy or Spain.
This has caused quite a problem for Libyan and European Union (EU) authorities until Italy signed a deal with Libya which further strengthened measures of tackling the immigration problem.
According to Amnesty International, this has awoken a terrible monster called slavery, which we have seen on the news in recent weeks.
In a shocking video released by Amnesty International, illegal immigrants are being tortured on boats provided by Italy to Libya to facilitate the shutting down of illegal sea routes to Europe.
Watch the video below:
Tortured. Raped. Sold.
