Seham Sergiwa Interview and Family Statements

The very day before she was kidnapped, Adam Sergiwa says his sister spoke out against the army in an interview with Egypt-based media. Her focus was on finding a more peaceful solution.

She was abducted after that interview. In that part of the country, nobody can talk openly about Heftar’s policies.

The Saturday before her appearance, the Sergiwa siblings spoke over the phone. Though Adam urged his sister to reconsider the interview, Seham insisted on going through with it.

“I hope I’m making a difference,” she told him.

Now, Seham Sergiwa’s family is also speaking openly about a peaceful solution: pleading for her safe return.

The family says they have been in touch with a number of Indiana senators and representatives.

Seham Sergiwa Role in the Arab Spring

In 2011, at the outset of the Arab Spring, Seham Sergiwa was among the first in the streets to protest the rule of Muammar Gaddafi. She rose to prominence for her work documenting the rape and sexual abuse of women during the 2011 Libyan Civil War.

In 2014, after Gaddafi’s downfall, she successfully ran for the House of Representatives, where she represents Benghazi. Over the past several years, she has sought solutions to end the current Libyan civil war. She recently attended a conference in Cairo aimed at resolving the conflict, returning to her home in Benghazi before her TV interview this month.

“She wanted a peaceful solution to unite Libya, one that wouldn’t leave anyone behind,” said Nicole Sergiwa, Seham’s niece. “She wouldn’t compromise on anything that would betray her beliefs.”
