Abdullah Al-Senussi Extradited to Libya From Mauritania

Abdullah al-Senussi

Abdullah Al-Senussi has been extradited from Mauritania to a high security prison in Tripoli.

This is yet another example of the Libyan authorities’ disregard for and flagrant violation of International Law.

Libya is obligated under UNSC Res 1970 to co-operate with the ICC.

As documented below, Abdullah Al-Senussi was the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the ICC under referral from the UNSC.  Yet, beyond the initial warrant, his case has not been addressed in any ICC documents currently available to the public.

Even though he is under ICC jurisdiction and therefore fully entitled to their protection, the ICC have never intervened on his behalf or appointed him legal counsel.  He should have faced a fair trial at the international criminal court.

Although the NATO puppet PM, Abdurrahim Al-Kib, has stated he will have a fair trial in Libya, it is widely understood that Abdullah Al-Senussi faces certain death.

Amnesty International have issued a statement today calling for Abdullah Al-Senussi’s immediate surrender to the ICC.

In February, 2011, Viva Libya appealed for his immediate and unconditional release based on the fact that he was innocent of all charges against him and his arrest was motivated by a desire for political revenge, not justice.
