"1. Justice for Saif Al-Gaddafi
Libyans were eager, if not fully prepared, to try Saif Al-Gaddafi in the country, and most were fully supportive of the NTC’s decision to shun all ICC requests for extradition. However, news that his trial might take place in the “remote mountaintop town” of Zintan, the city where he was found hiding, does not bode well for a fair trial. The risk that his tribunal might be tainted with the bitter impulse for revenge is high. It was not too long that Gaddafi’s son had been seen wagging his finger at Libyans and promising rivers of blood, and the graves borne of that promise are still freshly dug. Last year, as Libyans breathlessly anticipated the capture of Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan writer Hisham Matar warned against in-house prosecution, urging the NTC to turn him over to the ICC when they had the opportunity. “Revenge builds nothing; justice is educative, teaches a society the values of accountability, and the meaning of causality and responsibility,” he wrote.
I hesitate to believe that we’re incapable of giving Gaddafi, Jr. a fair trial. Yes, the political infrastructure is unstable at best and tensions are high as efforts to rebuild falter. But we have the opportunity to treat Saif to a justice we did not give his father. Whether Saif or Muammar deserve a fair trial in court is irrelevant but the Libyan people do; justice is a salve for the victim, not the brutalizer. The violence of Muammar’s death — justified or not — left gaping wounds in the psyche of the Libyan people that may only, now, be healed with the cool relief of forgiveness. Justice will not come in the form of retribution but in rebuilding our country."
As U can read Saif Trial is the 1st Priority ... as they put the context: SCARES! Death Penaty is Not Justice. Someone should explain it to Libyan People. But Libyans are Sorrounded by U.S. ( Yes, that country that executed teenagers ( 14/15 years old) at 2005! ). ... I Add a comment to this article ...I said all there. Freedom Respect Life!
