On 31 December, AP published an article about an investigation it had carried out in Libya which had revealed, inter alia, that huge sums of EU money have been diverted to intertwined networks of militiamen, traffickers and coast guard members who exploit migrants.  It says that, in many cases, the money goes to neighbouring Tunisia to be laundered, and then flows back to the militias in Libya.  This is said to be despite the EU’s own documents, dating back to as early as 2017, showing that it was aware of the dangers of effectively outsourcing its migration crisis to Libya.
