John Jones Libya Saif al-Islam Gadhafi


28 Jul, 2015

Gaddafi is sentenced to death by a court in Tripoli, with eight other figures from former dictatorship in a mass trial of former regime figures widely criticised by human rights groups and observers. Saif’s ICC-appointed lawyer, Jones, condemns the trial process:

It’s a complete show trial, a farce. This trial is effectively being run by Libya Dawn militias.

Saif is being held in Zintan since he was caught trying to flee Libya in the aftermath.
