The following presentation was conducted without the participation of Saif Qaddafi’s current defense team.
Absolutely no mention is made of the significant gains made by Melinda Taylor, the late John Jones, Q.C. (who had direct contact with Saif’s family), or the unrelenting efforts of the Qaddafi family and the Libyan Tribes.
At no time during Saif’s detention was Sir Geoffrey Nice QC assigned by the Qaddafi family to represent Saif Qaddafi.
This spectacle of self-promotion comes at the expense of the greater truth and serves empire’s interests more than actually helping Libya’s political prisoners.
The Tripoli government was not recognized as legitimate during the time period referred to. Only the elected House of Representatives was internationally recognized and no communications were directed at this body.
Since the UN-US installment of the government of accord in Tripoli this past March, the House of Representatives has not acknowledged it as legitimate, and without that the GNC will never be legitimized.
