TRIPOLI – Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter Aisha has asked the International Criminal Court whether it was investigating the killings of her father and brother Mutassim, and if it was taking steps to ensure the Libyan authorities were investigating the matter.
Her request is the subject of a letter written on her behalf by her lawyer, Nick Kaufman to the ICC prosecutor in which it was stated, that the former Libyan leader and his son Mutassim had been “murdered in the most horrific fashion with their bodies thereafter displayed and grotesquely abused in complete defiance of Islamic law”.
In the letter, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, Mr Kaufman who is representing Aisha went on to say: “The images of this savagery were broadcast throughout the world, causing my client severe emotional distress.
He added that to date, “neither Ms Gaddafi nor any member of her family has been informed, by your office, of the initiation of an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the brutal murders.” – Tripoli Post.
