Cairo, 29 July 2015:
Pro-Qaddafi demonstrators protested in Cairo today at the death sentences given yesterday to Saif Al-Islam, . . .[restrict]Abdullah Senussi and seven other leading former regime figures.
Swathed in Qaddafi-era Green flags, the demonstrators gathered outside the UN World Health Organization headquarters in Nasr City. Many claimed they had family members in prison in Libya.
They were addressed by Qaddafi’s spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, who described the 2011 revolution as a disaster and called for Saif Al-Islam to be freed and run the country.
He claimed that the verdicts would further destabilise Libya, sew hatred and undermine the chances of the UN-brokered Dialogue negotiations in Skhirat succeeding.
The demonstration was also attended by Ali Al-Kilani, who headed Libyan TV and Radio during the former regime.
The Libyan authorities have on several occasions asked to extradite both men, but Cairo has refused.
