Libya: Aisha Gaddafi Requests Full Investigation On Her Father’s Death

The Hague — In a letter sent on February 8 to the chairman of the United Nations’ commission of inquiry on Libya, Aisha Gaddafi’s lawyer requested a “comprehensive, independent and international” investigation on the death of her father and her brother Mo’tassim.

The United Nations’ commission of inquiry on Libya is expected to release its second report in May 2012.

Aisha Gaddafi wants it to “recommend that the Prosecutor of the International criminal court commence an immediate investigation into the circumstances surrounding their respective murders”.

Last year, Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo stated that the murder of Moammar Gaddafi in Syrte, on October 20, 2011, could be considered as a crime of war. He added that he would wait for the Commission to finish its investigation before deciding whether he should open a case about this murder, and NATO and rebels alleged crimes.

According to Aisha Gaddafi’s lawyer Nick Kaufman, Luis Moreno Ocampo has “inexplicably and temporarily abrogated his obligation to investigate the murder of Moammar Gaddafi”.

Nick Kaufman requests that the Commission record Aisha Gaddafi and her brother Mohammed testimonies about what happened in Libya. Not doing it “may be seen as lacking impartiality”, Kaufman noted.

Moammar Gaddafi was killed by rebel forces on October 20, 2011. His son Mo’tassim was executed the same day.
