On June 25, 2014, Libyans lost a voice of reason, a proponent of peace and democracy, and a strong advocate for human rights. Salwa Bughaighis was brutally assassinated by unidentified militia men in her home in Benghazi only hours after casting her vote for a new parliament. To this day, the investigation in her killing and disappearance of her husband, Essam El-Gheryani, has not been completed, and no one has been prosecuted or punished for the brutal act.
