Where are the Gaddafis? Update
by Omar Shtewi
We now know that Seif el Islam el Gaddafi, toast of the town among the political elites of Europe just seven months ago, is at large in Tripoli, claiming that he will fight on until the end. He claims, as well, that his father is still in Tripoli and is alive and well.
There has, as yet, been no word on Gaddafi’s daughter Aisha, or her mother Sophia.
It is important that we are not fooled by the pretense that these women should be given asylum in Europe on the basis that they are not involved. They are absolutely involved in the atrocities that have been committed against the Libyan people.
It is known that Sophia has stolen billions from the country. She also owns the airline Al Buraq, in her own right.
Aisha is a key member of the enforcer end of the family business. She must be put on trial with her brothers.
To allow her asylum in Europe is do deny the Libyan people right to justice and closure.
