Gaddafi’s Sons Arrested - Libyan Rebels in Tripoli

in Society

According to the International Criminal Court prosecutor, three sons of Colonel Gaddafi’s named Saif al-Islam and Al-Saadi were reported to be arrested and detained in Libya on the night of August 21 by Libyan rebels when the tyrant himself had fled the capital. Saif al-Islam Gaddafi had had a close relationship with the Western countries and passion for a democratic future for Libya before being closely allied to his father. He involved of ordering, planning and participating in illegal attacks on civilians. Al-Saadi, in the other hand, is the commander of Libya’s Special Forces who was accused for ordering the army to fire on unarmed protesters in Benghazi. Al-Jazeera states that “He (Saif) is being kept in a secure place under close guard until he is handed over to the judiciary.” A source insists on French newspaper Le Monde that “We gave instructions that he is well treated, in order to be judged.”


Despite being on a family holiday in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., U.S President Barack Obama said in a statement that “The future of Libya is now in the hands of the Libyan people.” The president also described the capital of Libya as “Tripoli is slipping from the grasp of a tyrant” and “Gadhafi's regime is showing signs of collapsing.” He promised that US would support and work in close co-ordination with the rebels “US will continue to insist that the basic rights of the Libyan people are respected.”
