<The group were sentenced to death in 1999. They are now waiting for their appeal which is in the Supreme Court.
Libyans have said no to international pressure, to release five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor, sentenced to death for having infected Libyan children with HIV.
They were sentenced by a Tripoli court for having given hundreds of Libyan children HIV knowingly.
The sentences has caused uproar internationally, while academicians argue that, “the guilty verdicts run counter to scientific evidence. But Libya’s foreign minister said it was now up to Libya’s Supreme Court.”
The minister says pressure from any corners will
not be entertained, adding that , “No-one can intervene in our justice – no-one. Even our leader, Colonel Gaddafi, can’t intervene. That should be quite clear.”
It now remains to be seen whether there will be change of heart in the Libyan Supreme Court.
