Here is the amalgamation of NATO’s campaign to bring freedom and democracy to Libya.
Watch a video of this report here:
A video has emerged apparently showing the son of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Saadi, being tortured.
The video was released by Arabic Clear News and shows Saadi and other inmates being abused by a group of men.
Saadi is blindfolded in a chair and made to listen to other prisoners being tortured and beaten nearby. Then, he has his feet beaten while strapped into a device.

His lawyer says that ‘Saadi being in al-Hadba subjects him both to the maximum sentence and to the maximum mistreatment’ simply because he holds the Gaddafi family name. The lawyer said that a ‘collective punishment‘ is being enforced. Something that has long been outlawed in international law.
These ‘courts’ recently sentenced Saadi’s brother Saif, Gaddafi’s other son, to death.

As this story reveals, freedom and democracy are no where to be found in ‘liberated‘ Libya.

Saadi Gaddafi torture video shows name guarantees ‘maximum mistreatment’ & no justice – lawyer to RT
A video apparently showing the torture of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s son during interrogation in prison has been condemned by both HRW, and his legal representative, who told RT that the Gaddafi name alone is enough to guarantee “maximum sentence and maximum mistreatment.”
The undated video, recently released by Arabic Clear News outlet shows a group of men ill-treating several inmates and interrogating a captive who strongly resembles al-Saadi Gaddafi, the third son of the deceased Colonel who ruled the country for almost 40 years.
“It does appear to be Saadi Gaddafi,” Melinda Taylor, an international criminal court defense lawyer for Saadi Gaddafi told RT. “He looks the same in sense [that] his head … [had been] shaved which happened to him last year.”
The footage shows the blindfolded man being forced to listen to the screams of at least two other inmates allegedly being tortured by the guards in the next room. Then he is made to watch them being beaten. No legal team is present during the “questioning.”…
