By letter of 16 December 2014 to the Dutch minister of foreign affairs , lawyer Liesbeth Zegveld has asked the Netherlands to appraoch the Libyan authorities in order to obtain compensation for the Palestinian doctor Ashraf El-Hagoug. The international human rights organization Redress wrote a letter to the minister in support of that request.

Mr. El-Hagoug suffered severe damage as a result of the so-called 'Benghazi HIV-case'. Those events have been condemned by the district court of The Hague as well as by the UN Human Rights Committee.
