"(...) This is not the first time that Mr. Ocampo has played the role of front man for the US empire. In fact, in every instance during the last nine years when the ICC, under his leadership, became involved with political leaders, the leaders indicted were always African and at odds with the foreign policy goals of the USA. Among them were Omar Al-Bashir of Sudan, Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, and his son, Saif. It should be noted that the USA has not accepted the jurisdiction of the the court over its citizens. In other words, the ICC is a one-way street along which the racist and neo-colonial goals of US foreign policy are driven in Africa, but the crimes of racism and neo-colonialism go unpunished.
During his nine years in office, however, Ocampo was not very successful as a prosecutor. Twenty-nine Africans were indicted but only one was convicted and not on the original charges contained in the indictment.2 Ocampo was also ridiculous for announcing that he was taking his lead from US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, and launching an investigation into the outrageous slander that the Gaddafi government of Libya was distributing Viagara to soldiers loyal to the state in order to promote mass rapes of women civilians.3 (...)

UPDATE 3:35 AM EST. - The Lebanon report on the murdered U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, in Libya remains unconfirmed by the AFP.
"According to the Lebanese news organization Tayyar.org, citing AFP news sources, U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, who was killed by gunmen that stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday, was reportedly raped before being murdered. A google translation of the report says: ... "
If Belhadj has gone over to Islamic State, it will represent a major boost to Islamic State’s efforts to co-opt and bring in Libya’s existing jihadist forces under their banner, which now reportedly includes as many as 3,000 fighters. Belhadj’s forces play a significant role in the Islamist “Libyan Dawn” coalition (which includes the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda’s Ansar al-Sharia), which currently holds Tripoli, and which claims to be the rightful government in opposition to the U.N. recognized government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni.
"Several videos allegedly showing supporters of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi being tortured have recently been posted on the Internet. These images have reignited a debate amongst Libyan web users as to the dubious methods used by the country’s security forces. The first video, published on December 20, shows a man, Ali Fezzani, who was arrested in Benghazi after having killed a security official in an attack on November 21. This attack was, as is often the case, blamed on Gaddafi supporters who allegedly are trying to get revenge on the city of Benghazi for starting the revolution that led to the downfall of their former leader. In the video, Fezzani denies any implication in the murder and swears, with his hand on the Koran, that his earlier confession of guilt was obtained by torture. ..."
"LONDON (AlertNet) - From the crisis in the Middle East to the arrest of Russian performers Pussy Riot, executions in the United States, Japan and other countries, and forced evictions across the globe, human rights have taken another battering in 2012.
Amnesty International said events in the past year should make leaders, companies and individuals the world over resolve to join the battle for human rights, as it published a timeline on Monday surveying some of the key human rights moments in 2012 to mark Human Rights Day.
"Across the world we see millions of individuals who have achieved extraordinary change against the odds," Salil Shetty, secretary general at Amnesty International, said in a statement. "These people stand in stark contrast to the governments which all too frequently stand by in the face of terrible violations from Syria to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“Crimes such as torture, disappearances and violence against women remain commonplace in parts of the world even though progress elsewhere is there to be seen. What we want in 2013 is more action and commitment to ensure everyone can enjoy their dignity and freedom.”
Below are some of the key human rights events in the past 12 months, according to Amnesty. The list is not meant to be exhaustive but gives an overview of human rights trends and events around the world. "
Foreign nationals without proper documentation are being exploited, indefinitely detained or even tortured, Amnesty International reports. According to Amnesty the conditions for undocumented foreigners are worse than in the Gaddafi era.
"The following post will discuss a disturbing trend among Libya's rebel fighters, revealed in videos they themselves recorded and shared on social media sites, especially Youtube and Facebook. These have persisted despite a general ban on violent and gory images, perhaps for the posters' stated aims of supporting the rebel cause and freedom. Consider the inset screen capture from a video of at least four dead government soldiers being driven around Misrata, chased and insulted by the crowd.
Almost universally, the victims of these crimes are called "mercenaries," usually (black) African, though it now seems that probably none of them were. Their very presence on videos labeled as that, however, went far towards convincing the world when it mattered most. (...)
