Justice in Libya: Investigating NATO? - #Saif #Libya #ICC #Justice #Ethics #HumanRights | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
A recent report released by Human Rights Watch, entitled “Unacknowledged Deaths: Civilian Casualties in NATO’s Air Campaign in Libya”, has called upon NATO to thoroughly investigate any ...

"David Bosco argues that Operative Paragraph means that the “court would not be able to reach American forces.” However, drawing on Rob Cryer’s excellent analysis of the Security Council’s 2005 referral of Darfur to the ICC, Kevin Jon Heller convincingly argues that the ICC is, in fact, able to investigate any alleged crimes committed by American citizens, concluding that “[n]othing in the Rome Statute gives the Security Council the right to revise the Court’s jurisdiction”.

"With international criminal justice featuring almost daily in the media and in the demands of the oppressed and violated, expectations that justice is evenly and fairly achieved will only increase. No self-respecting human rights advocate can argue that serious violations of international law by Western powers – whether it be the fire-bombing of Dresden in WWII, NATO’s bombing of Serbia in 1999 or the US and UK’s role in torture and rendition cases – should have escaped investigation or accountability. Anyone who truly believes in the project of international criminal justice has to readily admit to these serious gaps in the project – not in order to concede that the project is fundamentally flawed but because only by recognizing these shortcomings can the project be furthered, the playing field be made equal, and international justice be impartial and universal."

Libya S.O.S.: Torture in Libya [ WARNING: THESE IMAGES MAY SHOCK VIEWERS] | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
“Today, those who took part in the uprising are above the law”

Unfortunately, the NTC government is doing nothing to prevent this type of abuse. On the contrary, perpetrators benefit from complete impunity, thanks to a new law that stipulates that former rebels cannot be brought to court or punished for “acts committed with the goal of ensuring the revolution’s success.” In other words, today, those who took part in the uprising are above the law.
Anyone who criticizes them is immediately branded a Gaddafi sympathizer.

Libya: Just another Nato casualty #Saif #Gaddafi #Libya #Feb17Crimes #NTC #Torture #HumanRights | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Seven months on from Muammar Gaddafi's butchering in the ruins of Sirte, the fruits of liberal intervention in Libya are now cruelly clear and documented by the United Nations and human rights groups:

8000 prisoners held without trial,

rampant torture and routine deaths in detention,

the ethnic cleansing of Tawerga, a town of 30000 mainly black Libyans (already in the frame as a crime against humanity)

and the continuing violent persecution of sub-Saharan Africans across the country.

 

A year after the Western powers tried to make up for lost ground in the Arab uprisings by tipping the balance of the Benghazi-led revolt, Libya is in the lawless grip of rival warlords and armed conflict between militias as the West-installed National Transitional Council passes Gaddafi-style laws clamping down on freedom of speech, gives legal immunity to former rebels and disqualifies election candidates critical of the new order. ..."

Is Libya Complying with International Criminal Court (ICC)? #Saif #Sennusi #Libya

Is Libya Complying with International Criminal Court (ICC)? #Saif #Sennusi #Libya | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" Turning New Page for Humanity & Libya on Death Penalty:

 

In my opinion, (recall I’m negotiator and signatory of the Rome Statue), the potential of death penalty being imposed upon Saif and Sennusi also raises concerns. The ICC explicitly has rejected the death penalty. In the event of traditional complementary jurisdiction, the death penalty may still come into effect some would argue. However, a case referred by the UN Security Council, (and especially in event of non-ICC state), presents a different set of both legal and factual circumstances. The execution of Saif and/or Senussi could be interpreted as being carried out under the authority of the UN Security Council, not a welcome nor acceptable result for many UNSC members. (There is one possible loophole to this argument – that Saif and Senussi are also prosecuted for crimes beyond the date and scope of UNSC  Resolution 1970 – for example crimes committed against the Libyan people prior to the uprising). ..."

NATO killings whitewashed: Civilian bombing raid victims ignored

As NATO member states are getting ready for their summit in Chicago this week, a report has surfaced blaming the Alliance for dozens of civilian killings during its military campaign in Libya. New York-based Human Rights Watch has called for a thorough investigation of the potential attacks - which NATO has refused to comment on. RT talks to Wenzel Michalski who's from Human Rights Watch.

Could the ICC prosecute Americans for civilian deaths in Libya?/ YES! ICC CAN & WE DEMANDE! #Saif #Libya | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Last week, I wrote about Russia's prodding of the International Criminal Court to investigate any NATO war crimes in Libya. In that post, I argued that the UN Security Council resolution referring the Libya situation to the court precluded prosecutions of non-ICC member state nations. Not so fast, says Kevin Jon Heller, writing at Opinion Juris. He argues that the Security Council can't refer only part of a situation to the court:  "Paragraph 6 of Res. 1970 might have made non-member NATO states feel better about the ICC referral, but it does not prohibit the ICC from prosecuting their nationals."

''Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Ali Megrahi, who has died, aged 60 was, known to the world as ‘the Lockerbie bomber’; an unrepentant terrorist and senior Libyan intelligence agent. To many who have studied the case, he was the victim of the most shocking miscarriage of justice of recent years. He was convicted in January 2001 for the murder of the 270 Lockerbie victims, a verdict described by the United Nations trial observer as ‘incomprehensible’.''

The mafia and now NATO | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Meanwhile, in Brussels, NATO spokespersons declared to have bombed the headquarters of pro-Ghaddafi militia in order to protect the civilian population from the tyrant who is repressing it.
It is not known how the whole thing was planned by the targets committee, nor how the chiefs of NATO’s general staff followed the unfolding of the operation. What is clear is that the Atlantic Alliance, with its spruced-up generals and right-thinking diplomats, has decided to murder the chidren of Libyan leaders to break their psychological resistance.

Since the XIIIth century, European theologists and jurists have prohibited the assassination of families. Only the mafia has broken this absolute taboo. The mafia and now NATO.

There were reports that people were paid who were dead and that those who never joined the anti-Gaddafi efforts also received monies. In addition to these problems with public funds being turnover to rebel fighters, others were sent on trips abroad for medical treatment but were not injured. ... "

 Video - Libya-n "Rebels" Whip And Torture Man Telling Him He's Pig Meat #Saif #Feb17Crimes #NTC #ICC #UN

"One of our Observers in Misrata confirms that the accent of the men in the video matches that of his hometown. The men are dressed in military garb and accompanied by two teenage boys, who take turns beating the prisoner. The victim can be seen lying on the ground with his hands tied behind his back with wire (at 2’19 minutes, a guard can be seen tightening the binds.) His feet are bare, and tied to the branch of a tree. The men beat the soles of the prisoners’ feet repeatedly with a branch and a rubber stick while shouting obscenities at him. 

At 1’30 minutes, an off-camera voice explains the “reasons” for this vicious torture: the prisoner is allegedly a former Gaddafi supporter who made a mobile phone video of a bloody attack against Misrata rebels (the city was relentlessly bombed and ravaged by Gaddafi’s troops from February to May 2011). The narrator adds that in the video he made, the prisoner can allegedly be heard saying that he wants to “break into a dozen homes and rape the women of Misrata.” The video ends on footage of a man in military apparel beating the prisoner with a stick and ordering him to bark. "

 

 

PS.: Journalist and HR activists go on Justifying This Misrata Praxis By what they suffer with Gaddafi army ...I Must say:  WHEN THIS PEOPLE STOP INSIST FEED THE MISRATA LIES ABOUT RAPE??? NOW WE KNOW WAS A BIG LIE!

Al-Qaida-fighter and Salafist Abdul Hakim Belhadj is now Military Commander of Tripoli (aug 26)

Escobar says that Taliban-linked sources overseas have confirmed Belhadj as the new commander. In the aftermath of 9/11, the CIA began tracking Belhadj, who was eventually captured in Malaysia in 2003.

Escobar says that he was then tortured in Bangkok before being transferred back to Libya and imprisoned. He made a deal that allowed for his release in 2009 and as of this week is the military commander of Tripoli.
