Tripoli, 29 May 2015:
Four years on from the revolution, a court in Misrata has sentenced two Qaddafi regime officers . . .[restrict]to life imprisonment for their role in it.
The city’s Court of Appeal, which is also its court of first instance, yesterday found Mustafa Abdussalam Salim Al-Mashai from the Jebel Nafusa and Abdurrahim Khaled Abdussalam Al-Kask from Tripoli guilty of having taken up arms against the Libyan people, of providing assistance to the Qaddafi regime and of possessing weapons and ammunition without a license during the revolution.
In addition to the life sentences, they were deprived of their civil rights.
The case is just one of many involving hundreds former regime officials and supporters still held in jail in Misrata.
Human rights organisations have called for trials to be speeded up, for access to those detained and for all of them to be held in official prisons. [/restrict]
