Libyan regime must be crazy: Detaining ICC employees illegally – Better Muammar Gaddafi be resurrected.
Posted by African Press International on June 11, 2012
The new regime was aided to power by the international community when the international community ganged up and killed Muammar Gaddafi. Now the ne regime is growing horns and even daring to detain employees from the International Criminal Court who are in Libya to research on atrocities and find out more about detained son of Gaddafi.
What Libya is doing is totally wrong! They would not manage to drive off Gaddafi without help and they should always be thankful to the International community and shut up – hand-over Saif-al-Islam Gaddafi to the ICC instead of playing holy. After all, most of them were with Gaddafi during his rule. They only changed their skin from that of a wolf to the goat skin.
