NATO-Backed ‘Militia Court’ in Libya Sentences Gaddafi’s Son and 8 Others to Death

.21st Century Wire says…

Back in 2011, a US-led NATO campaign was launched with the aim to out Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi from power, but also the permanently destablize the formerly stable and thriving North African nation.

In order to achieve its objectives on the ground, NATO’sleaders thought it prudent to employ the services of newly formed Islamic terrorist militia groups. After Gaddafi was killed and Libya destroyed, thousands of Libyan-based terrorists were then transferred over to Syria to help the west destabilize and destroy that country too. Many of the Islamic soldiers of fortune, who were previously backed by, and worked directly with NATO, have since returned to Libya to aid in its dissolution and atmosphere of chaos. They have since formed a new puppet organization called ‘Libyan Dawn’.

Presently, the terrorist militias are running Kangaroo Court trials and sentencing Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam, along with dozens of ex-Gaddafi government officials to prison and even death. RT reports:

The trial was conducted in Tripoli by an unrecognized Islamist government that came to power after forcing a rival government out of the Libyan capital. The trial lasted just two days and can hardly be called fair, lawyer John Jones, who was involved in defending Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, told RT a day before the ruling.”

“Earlier Tuesday, after the proceedings had just started, Jones said an atmosphere of intimidation hung over the entire proceedings.”

“Lawyers were intimidated, the judges are intimidated, lawyers had had to leave the case,” he said.

Watch this exclusive interview with Saif by RT, filmed in June 2011, a few months before his father’s government fell:

A Frankenstein created by NATO in 2010, Libyan Dawn jihadists have teamed up with CIA-linked terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia, and are currently in a battle for control of the failed state against the West’s most recent, albeit pathetic attempt at a puppet government Libya, a corrupt coalition optimistically called, Operation Dignity led by a formerly exiled Gaddafi defector, General Hifter (aka Haftar) and other secular members mostly aligned with the fallen regime. Despite his failure, Hifter is getting hand-outs (bags of cash) and other ‘military assistance’ from the UAE and Egypt, and possible under-the-table support from some western countries.

Their goal was to root out rival militia forces and Islamic fighting groups, but they failed miserably. The Atlantic magazine describes Libyan Dawn:

“It includes ex-jihadists from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, militias from the powerful port of Misrata, and fighters drawn from certain Tripoli neighborhoods, the ethnic Berber population, and some communities in the western mountains and coast. Dawn has forged a tactical alliance with a coalition of Benghazi-based Islamist militias that are battling Hifter’s forces, one of which is the U.S.-designated terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia.”

Back in 2010-2011, the US and its media had originally conned the rest of the world by making up the colorful fairy tale that Gaddafi was “using his air force against peaceful street protesters.” This was the original fraudulent basis for Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy’s UN Resolution 1973 for a “No Fly Zone” cry to the UN which quickly became the pretext for an all-out air assault and proxy war on the ground. It seems that the Jihadist Kangaroo Courts are still using the same old western lies.

Saif-GaddafiPresident Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi (image, left) stands accused of many the things which NATO did themselves, “recruiting mercenaries, attacking civilian targets from the air, forming armed groups and shooting into crowds of demonstrators.” In fact, Libyan Dawn itself is comprised of many Islamic mercenaries hired by NATO (and promised a ‘seat at the table’ in a New Libya) to help overthrow Gaddafi in 2011.

Libyan Dawn would not exist if not for the fact that they, and the rest of their ilk, were created by NATO and member states’ intelligence agencies. By extension, this would also include many ISIS brigades too.

Once again, NATO’s mess is pervasive, but NATO members remain in denial, refusing to admit that they are the ones responsible for the collapse of an entire country and civilization…

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi
, the son of Libya’s former dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, has been sentenced to death by a court in Tripoli in a mass trial of former regime figures widely criticised by human rights groups and observers.

Saif Gaddafi, once seen as his father’s heir apparent, was condemned to death along with eight other figures from the former dictatorship, including the former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi and Gaddafi’s last prime minister, Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi.

The trial, which opened in Tripoli in April last year, has been mired in controversy after human rights groups and the international criminal court questioned its standards.

There is uncertainty about whether the sentence will be carried out, as Gaddafi is being held by a militia in the mountain town of Zintan that is opposed to Libya Dawn, the militia coalition in control of Tripoli.

Gaddafi has been held in Zintan since he was caught trying to flee Libya in the aftermath of the 2011 revolution. The militia has refused to hand him over to Tripoli.

He was accused in the trial of recruiting mercenaries, attacking civilian targets from the air, forming armed groups and shooting into crowds of demonstrators. Among the charges he was convicted of were incitement to murder and rape…
