We all know how this will end.
That they weren’t immediately upon capture, brutally sodomized then shot on the spot, they should consider themselves somewhat more lucky than their fearless leader.
Ex-Gadhafi officials appear at trial in Libya, sons absent
In Libya, a trial against the sons of former leader Moammar Gadhafi and more than 30 of his ex-officials has been adjourned. The group faces charges relating to crimes allegedly committed during Libya’s uprising.
The men are accused of various crimes, including murder and kidnapping related to the 2011 uprising that led to the ouster and killing of Moammar Gadhafi.They have also been accused of embezzlement of public funds.
Two of Gaddafi’s sons that are facing trial, Saif al-Islam and Saadi Gadhafi, did not appear in the courtroom at a prison in the capital Tripoli. The other defendants, including ex-spy chief Abdullah al-Senussi and former Prime Minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, sat in blue jumpsuits behind a fenced-off section (seen above).
Many complained to the judge that they had not been given proper access to lawyers.
“I want to be treated like other prisoners. I want visiting rights. I don’t have a lawyer,” al-Senussi said.
Saif al-Islam had been expected to appear by video link in the courtroom. He has been in custody since November 2011, when rebels arrested him shortly after his father’s death, while Saadi Gadhafi was extradited from Niger earlier this month, where he had sought refuge.
