Lybia: Quash Death Sentences of Nine Former Officials (UA 166/15)




A Libyan court has sentenced nine men to death who had been part of Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi’s regime, including his son Saif al-Islam and head of Military Intelligence, Abdallah al-Senussi. The men’s trial was seriously flawed. 
1) Please write immediately in Arabic, English or your own language:
  • Urging the Libyan authorities to quash all death sentences handed down to the nine former officials and order a retrial, without recourse to the death penalty, for all those convicted;
  • Calling on them to establish immediately an official moratorium on executions, as a first step towards abolition;
  • Urging them to order independent and impartial investigations into all allegations of torture and other ill-treatment.
