The #ICC must consider fair trial concerns in determining Libya’s application to prosecute Saif al-Islam Gaddafi nationally

The #ICC must consider fair trial concerns in determining Libya’s application to prosecute Saif al-Islam Gaddafi nationally | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The ICC’s Pre-Trial Chamber is considering the Libyan government’s challenge to the admissibility of the case against Saif al-Islam Gaddafi. The request raises serious concerns as to whether he would receive a fair trial in Libya. The plain meaning of the rule of complementarity spelled out in Article 17 of the Rome Statute; the interpretative provisions in Article 21 (3); and a teleological approach confirm that, if the judges are not satisfied that the rights of the accused will be respected in national criminal proceedings, the case will be admissible and the application must be rejected.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was arrested in November 2011 and is being held in Zintan by militia who are refusing to hand him over to the central authorities. According to the Office of Public Counsel for Defence representing him at the ICC, he has been held in isolation in secret locations without access to national courts or effective access to a lawyer or facilities to communicate with his family.

More generally, the Libyan national justice system remains in a weak state. Thousands of suspected al-Gaddafi loyalists are currently being detained in Libya by armed militias outside the framework of the law. Only a small number have been presented before a court or charged with a recognisable criminal offence. Amnesty International has documented  torture and other ill-treatment of these detainees, in some cases resulting in coerced confessions and death. (...) "

.:Middle East Online::The Urgent Need for National Reconciliation in Libya #Justice #Equality #Law # #Saif #Gaddafi #GNC

Libya’s political leaders must not mistake the lack of demonstrative political pressure to address the issue of national reconciliation as a sign that all is forgiven. Dealing with our past is akin to treating national internal bleeding whose symptoms might not be immediately apparent to the naked eye but whose long term consequences for the health of Libya’s body politic can be extremely harmful.

The need to deal speedily and effectively with the past is best illustrated by the German writer Jurgen Fuchs who expressed concern to Adam Michnik, a leader of the Polish opposition to communist rule about crimes committed by the communist regime in East Germany. “If we do not solve this problem in a definite way, it will haunt us."

Likewise in post revolution Libya, the present and the past are entwined and the burden of the past will continue to be an albatross around our present and future. The albatross will pull us back if justice is not done and seen to be done.

When a forty- two-year-old regime ends as a result of a violent revolution, anomie is inescapable. But it is the duty of the successor regime to come up with a strategy that ensures justice is dispensed in a balanced way.

This brings to the fore the urgent need to establish accountability for past crimes of human rights abuses and addressing allegations of active participation in systematic abusive practices in a court of law in a transparent and fair manner.

Tomgram: Pepe Escobar, Obama in Tehran? | TomDispatch | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" Imagine, for a moment, a world in which the United States is a regional power, not a superpower. A world in which the globe’s mightiest nation, China, invades Mexico and Canada, deposing the leaders of both countries. A world in which China has also ringed the Americas, from Canada to Central America, with military bases. A world in which Chinese officials openly brag about conducting covert operations against and within the United States. A world in which the Chinese launch a sophisticated and crippling cyber attack on America’s nuclear facilities. A world in which the Chinese send spy drones soaring over the United States and position aircraft carrier battle groups off its shores. What would Americans think? How would Washington react? Perhaps something like Iran’s theocratic leadership today. After all, Iran has seen the United States invade its neighbors Iraq and Afghanistan, announce covert operations against it, surround it with military bases, fly drones over it, carry out naval operations off its coast, conduct a gigantic build-up of military forces all around it, and launch a cyberwar against it.

Pepe Escobar  :: I love the sound of a drone in the morning #Obama #Drones #US #Iran #NATO | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"It may not have been a deadly Predator equipped with a Hellfire missile eager to incinerate a Pashtun wedding party, but in our Brave New UAV World - also known as Obama's Drone Wars - even a lowly ScanEagle, manufactured by a Boeing subsidiary, may be assured to steal the limelight.

So here's the star of the show on Iranian TV after it was captured over the Persian Gulf. Geopolitical junkies fed up with the same old US generals regurgitating cliches on Fox or CNN will certainly feast on that ultra-retro "We will trample the US under our feet" banner, not to mention the quirky Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) production values in the PR front.

Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, commander of the IRGC's navy, said the

ScanEagle was "hunted" and then "forced" to "land electronically" after invading Iran's airspace. Well, it may have been slightly more complicated. The always delightful Moon of Alabama still provides the best explanation: the IRGC probably electronically disabled the drone's satellite link and then took over its line-of-sight radio control. ..."

AFRICOM and the Recolonisation of Africa #Africa #Gaddafi #US #Libya #Bush #Africom | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"AFRICOM, literally known as ”The United States Africa Command”(USAFRICOM) is one of nine Unified Combatant Commands of the United States Armed Forces headquartered at Kelley barracks, Stuttgart in Germany.

AFRICOM was created by George W Bush by Presidential Order in 2007 to cordinate US military activities throughout Africa and is directly responsible for U:S military operations and military relations with 53 african nations – an area of responsibility covering the whole of Africa except Egypt.

In mid-2006, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld formed a planning team to advise on requirements for establishing a new Unified Command for the African continent. In early December, he made his recommendations to President George W. Bush.

(...)

 

Gaddafi's role in preventing AFRICOM
In order to to establish AFRICOM bases in each African country, the USA government actually bribed the leaders of these African Nations by giving them millions of dollars in exchange of accepting AFRICOM.

The reisitence to AFRICOM on the African continent was mainly led and spearheaded by Muammar Gaddafi and Libya. He was the only African President who was suspicious and wary of AFRICOM's role in the recolonisation of Africa. He paid African leaders to refuse to cooperate with AFRICOM by offering investment and infrastructure and offering cash to African countries that refused to host US military base on their soil and who refused to cooperate with AFRICOM. Gaddafi actually paid each African leader twice the amount of money they received from the USA government. Libya under Muammar Gaddafi was really the biggest obstacle to the plan of subordinating African Union Forces to AFRICOM. This led to the refusal of AFRICOM bases in many Africa countries. As long as Gaddafi was alive, Africa would not be recolonized.

With Gaddafi out of the way now, the plan of establishing AFRICOM bases in AFRICA will continue . For instance shortly after the assassination of Gaddafi , President Obama sent about 100 US Special Forces to four different countries of Africa ostensibly to hunt down Joseph Kony , leader of the notorious Lords Resistance Army in Uganda. Ugandan forces , alongside Kenyan and Ethiopian forces, are largely in Somalia fighting a proxy war for the US in Somalia and its Western allies. The US forces were sent to Uganda to train Ugandan forces to fight on their behalf in Somalia. Uganda has about 8000 troops in Somalia.

Gaddafi's refusal of AFRICOM was another major reason that led to his overthrow and execution by NATO and its western allies.With Gaddafi gone, Africa is therefore vulnerable to the forces of recolonisation as he had the vision, influence and fund that had initially blocked the establishment of AFRICOM bases in Africa from 2007 to 2011.

Great Document »»» Text of Gaddafi letter to Obama #Libya #Obama #Gaddafi | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

The following is the text of a letter sent to President Barack Obama on Wednesday by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, published by the Associated Press news agency. The misspellings and grammatical errors are in the original letter.

Our son, Excellency,

President Obama

U.S.A

We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the USA.

We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action. I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that. Enough evidence is available, Bearing in mind that you are the president of the strongest power in the world nowadays, and since Nato is waging an unjust war against a small people of a developing country.

This country had already been subjected to embargo and sanctions, furthermore it also suffered a direct military armed aggression during Reagan's time. This country is Libya. Hence, to serving world peace ... Friendship between our peoples ... and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato off the Libyan affair for good.

As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi.

You - yourself - said on many occasions, one of them in the UN General Assembly, I was witness to that personally, that America is not responsible for the security of other peoples. That America helps only. This is the right logic.

Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.

The problem now stands as follows:-

1. There is Nato intervention politically as well as military.

2. Terror conducted by AlQaueda gangs that have been armed in some cities, and by force refused to allow people to go back to their normal life, and carry on with exercising their social people's power as usual.

Mu'aumer Qaddaffi

Leader of the Revolution

Tripoli 5.4.2011

Libya: Justice awaits for general's murder #Libya #Justice #Benghazi #Younis #Gaddafi #NTC | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Benghazi - Eighteen months after the mysterious murder of a top general who led the early stages of the rebellion against Muammar Gaddafi, Libya's judiciary has yet to shed light on the case that could involve some senior former rebels.

General Abdel Fatah Younis had participated in the coup that brought Gaddafi to power in 1969 and later became the dictator's interior minister before defecting early in the February 2011 uprising against the late strongman.

Following his defection, Younis, from the powerful Al-Obeidi tribe, became the chief of staff of the anti-Gaddafi rebellion until he was assassinated on 28 July last year in the eastern city of Benghazi - the birthplace of the uprising - with two of his companions from the same tribe. (...) "

"WASHINGTON – Contrary to Obama administration claims, al-Qaida is alive and well, according to credible documents provided to WND by a group of anti al-Qaida Libyans in exile.

The documents indicate top-level al-Qaida operatives are functioning with impunity in Libya under a NATO-established provisional government, contrary to claims the Obama administration made even after the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Working with Arabic-speaking former Muslim Brotherhood member Walid Shoebat, WND has examined an array of records obtained by the Libyan expatriates from top-level sources inside the Libyan government. (...)"

Libya, UMSC standoff over Gadaffi Mosque #Libya #Uganda #Muslims #UMSC #Gaddafi #Islamics #Religion | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The Libyan Government and Muslims of the Old Kampala faction are locked in a standoff over the name of the gigantic Gaddafi mosque.

The Libyan Government has directed that the name Gaddafi be dropped. Muammar Gaddafi, who donated the mosque as a gift to Muslims in Uganda, was brutally murdered in Libya last October following nearly a year of civil war. The Mosque was commissioned on March 12, 2008.

However, Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) head, Supreme Mufti, Sheikh Shaban Mubajje, has insisted that the mosque belongs to Muslims in Uganda and Libya cannot give such a directive.

Libya made its directive through the Islamic Call Society (ICS) where they channel aid to the Muslim community in Uganda.

Several meetings between UMSC and ICS to resolve the issue have yielded no solution so far.

The UMSC spokesperson, Hajji Nsereko Mutumba, said a Libyan delegation was at Gaddafi mosque on Monday and directed them to change its name and even remove the wall hangings of the deposed president.

“UMSC and its advisers agreed that the Libyan Government has no authority to make such a directive since the mosque belongs to Uganda,” Hajji Nsereko said. (...) "

A War for Human Rights? #Libya #Gaddafi #NATO #R2P  #UN #Media #Benghazi | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The war in Libya never happened. At least that is what one might think, considering the dearth of serious analysis and critical reflection in Canada since our participation in NATO’s bombardment campaign ended a year ago. Yet in Libya, in many ways the war is still happening. If we (we as in all the federal political parties) thought we could bomb a country into democracy and respect for human rights, we were worse than just naïve. We were guilty of hiding our motivations, and guilty of ignoring the consequences of our actions.

How the war was sold to the public needs to be revisited lest we treat war as merely a temporary spectacle of no consequence. We were told that Muammar Gaddafi threatened mass atrocities, even “genocide,” against Benghazi. We were told that he fueled his troops with Viagra, so they could go on a systematic spree of mass rape. We were told that he used the air force against unarmed, peaceful protesters. We were told that he imported African mercenaries to butcher his opposition. And we were told that our military intervention would save lives and was designed to protect civilians. (...) "

Libya 2011 Infamy will not get to tell. »»»  SLOUCHING TOWARDS SIRTE —  #Libya #Sirte #R2P #UN #NATO #Books | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"NATO’s war in Libya was proclaimed as a humanitarian intervention—bombing in the name of “saving lives.” Attempts at diplomacy were stifled. Peace talks were subverted. Libya was barred from representing itself at the UN, where shadowy NGOs and “human rights” groups held full sway in propagating exaggerations, outright falsehoods, and racial fear mongering that served to sanction atrocities and ethnic cleansing in the name of democracy. The rush to war was far speedier than Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

Max Forte has scrutinized the documentary history from before, during, and after the war. He argues that the war on Libya was not about human rights, nor entirely about oil, but about a larger process of militarizing U.S. relations with Africa. The development of the Pentagon’s Africa Command, or AFRICOM, was in fierce competition with Pan-Africanist initiatives such as those spearheaded by Muammar Gaddafi. "

"An Irish-based consultant ophthalmologist who became Libya's health minister after the overthrow of Colonel Gadafy said she feared for her life doing her job.

Dr Fatima Hamroush was based at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda until November last year until she was appointed by the National Transition Council as the country's health minister.

Dr Hamroush said she became a marked women after attempting to deal with a massive fraud on the Libyan state by bogus fighters who claimed to have been wounded in the overthrow of Colonel Gadafy.

At the end of her tenure last month she was accompanied by eight armed guards carrying Kalashnikovs and lived inside an army compound. She said it felt like house arrest.

She was a member of the Libyan opposition based overseas since 2008. Her original appointment was for eight months but it was extended for a year.

Weapons Sent to Libyan Rebels With U.S. Approval Fell Into Islamist Hands #Libya #Alqaeda #Obama | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.

No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government. (...)"

"NATO foreign ministers meeting in Brussels Tuesday approved Turkey’s request for the deployment of Patriot missile batteries and hundreds of US and other foreign troops on the country’s border with Syria. The deployment will mark a qualitative escalation of the US-backed war for regime-change in Syria, paving the way, much as in Libya last year, for a direct US-NATO intervention.

Turkey, which has played a leading role in funneling arms, money, foreign fighters and logistical assistance to the so-called “rebels” seeking to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad, justified its request by claiming it was threatened with the use by the Syrian regime of surface-to-surface missiles armed with chemical weapons.

In a clearly coordinated campaign, Turkey’s unsubstantiated claim of a chemical weapons threat from Syria was amplified by a flurry of allegations by the US government and major American media outlets. The New York Timesand CNN cited unspecified “intelligence” about the supposed movement of Syrian chemical weapons components. This was combined with threats from President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who spoke of Syria approaching a “red line” that would result in direct American military intervention.

Religious Violence in Libya: Who Is to Blame? #Libya #Gaddafi # Tripoli #Salafist #Sharia | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"It has been more than a year since the Libyan revolution succeeded in demolishing the dictatorial regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Following his death, analysts warned of tribal fighting and slow regional disintegration, but Libya has proven these commentators wrong.

Today, the country has a new, democratically elected government and a diverse political landscape of parties and coalitions. Contemporary Libya is clearly a nation in the making, rather than just a conglomeration of tribes ready to be at each other's throat. Libyans, however, are still experiencing some conflicts.

In the past months, local Salafist groups have been attacking Sufi gathering places and teaching centers in different parts of the country. In the middle of last month, the head of the most ancient Sufi shrine in the city of Tripoli, Shaykh Abdullah Banun, received death threats.

Libyan politicians have repeatedly commented on these episodes of violence, but the number of attacks seems to be increasing. In August, the interior minister, Fawzi Abdellahi, resigned in protest at criticism from others in government over his failed handling of the violence. (...)

"The Russian Foreign Ministry has told its NATO partners that it hopes there will be no attempts at military intervention in Syria.
Lavrov advanced Russia’s firm position on Syria after a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council in Brussels on Tuesday.
"We hope there will be no foreign interference," he said.
Moscow, which is pushing for a diplomatic resolution of the Syrian conflict, has regularly met with both the Syrian rebel opposition as well as those who are loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose rule has been fiercely challenged by a 20-month political uprising.
Meanwhile, Lavrov revealed that NATO shares Russia’s belief that a military solution to the Syrian problem is non-existent.
"Our partners touched upon the Syrian situation and assured us they were seeking an exclusively peaceful solution,” he disclosed. “They said a military solution to the conflict was non-existent – and we fully agreed with them."
Lavrov emphasized the Russian position that “there will be political and diplomatic support in an effort to urge the combatants to stop the bloodshed and sit down at the negotiating table.”
"Syria is not Libya,” Lavrov added, making reference to NATO’s decision to intervene in last year’s Libyan civil war, which led to the capture and assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. (...)"
