‘Feet or Buttocks?’ Shocking Video Shows Gaddafi’s Son Being Tortured in Libyan Prison

A video that shows Saadi Gaddafi, son of Libya’s late Muammar Qaddafi, being tortured in jail has been condemned by lawyers and rights groups.

The nine-minute video shows Saadi, 42, in a green tracksuit, being hooked up to an improvised rack, apparently while in custody at Tripoli’s maximum security al-Hadba prison. His bare feet are then caned.

Segments show him sitting blindfolded and forced to listen to screams of other detainees being beaten in an adjacent room.

WARNING: Some may find elements of video disturbing

“It raises serious concerns about the methods used to interrogate al-Saadi Gaddafi and other detainees at al-Hadba prison,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East Director of Human Rights Watch.

“The Tripoli authorities need to urgently establish exactly what did occur.”

The video’s release, by Arabic network Clear News, has alarmed lawyers worried about the treatment of other detainees at al-Hadba, where former Gaddafi-era officials are held.

“This is a shocking video that raises questions about conditions inside the prison,” said Karim Khan QC, London-based lawyer for Libya’s former prime minister al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, also at al-Hadba. “The international community needs to demand a full investigation.”

Saadi is facing trial on charges including killing a football player while head of Libya’s football federation. During his father’s time in power, he established a reputation as a playboy and had a brief unsuccessful career playing for several Italian football clubs.

The undated video, consisting of several segments, was apparently made by Saadi’s captors, some of whom are seen in the footage in military uniform. At one stage, a captor asks Saadi if he wants to be beaten on the “feet or buttocks”. He answers: “What kind of question is this? My feet.”

Al-Hadba is held by Libya Dawn, a militia alliance that controls Tripoli and is battling forces of the internationally recognised government based in the east of the country.

The release of the video comes a week after Tripoli authorities pronounced death sentences for Saadi’s older brother, Saif al-Islam , and eight other former Gaddafi-era officials, including Mahmoudi, after a trial condemned by rights groups and the United Nations as lacking due process. Saif al-Islam was tried in absentia, since he has been held since 2011 by a former rebel group in Zintan, a region beyond Tripoli’s control. Right groups say the verdict was riddled with flaws.

Despite the manner of his downfall, still enjoys pockets of goodwill.

In a rare demonstration, supporters in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday shouted “Muammar, Muammar”, but dispersed after opponents opened fire with guns and hurled rocks.

No-one appeared to have been hurt among dozens of supporters of Gaddafi.

The Gaddafi supporters waved pictures of the man who had ruled for 42 years, and demanded the release of Saif al-Islam.

“Only God, Muammar and Libya!” the crowd chanted and waved the green flags of the old regime.

They dispersed after other residents, some of them carrying the Libyan national flag, opened fire.

Residents said this was the first protest of Gaddafi loyalists in Libya’s second-largest city, the cradle of the revolution, since 2011.

Frustration has been building among Libyans with the country’s chaos as two governments fight for power with the help of former rebels who have fallen out along political, tribal and regional lines.

Benghazi has been especially hard hit as fighting between forces allied to the official government based in the east and Islamist groups has closed the port, choking off wheat, food and petrol imports.

Desperate Times: Israel on the Edge

Desperate Times: Israel on the Edge

TEHRAN (FNA)- European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini says Europe wants to play a more prominent role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

To this end, the EU plans to put more pressure on Tel Aviv to stop stealing land from the Palestinians to build and expand more illegal settlements.

Furthermore, a number of EU countries have officially recognized the State of Palestine while others have recognized a state in principle and are critical of Israel’s continued occupation and land theft. These are desperate times for the international bully and there is more to come:

– Palestine has officially signed the Rome Statute and joined the International Criminal Court. In return, Israel withheld millions of dollars paid by Palestinians in taxes. The regime contacted several member countries of the ICC, imploring them to reduce the amount of money they pay to that organization. It was rebuffed.

– Palestine has petitioned FIFA to expel Israel from the largest soccer organization in the world. Israel prevents Palestinian players from traveling to events, from purchasing necessary equipment, and preventing full Palestinian participation. Israel is frantically contacting the heads of soccer associations, desperate to gain support for its indefensible position.

– Human rights groups have documented that Israel kidnaps, arrests without charge, holds for months at a time and tortures Palestinian children. The United Nations has yet to officially condemn the regime, despite reports from its agencies stating the obvious. That could soon change as more and more countries are becoming critical of Israel.

– US Secretary of State John Kerry called fifty heads of state to defeat a proposal in the UN that would have called for an end to the occupation by 2017. The thanks he received were the controversial speech by “Prime Murderer” Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress, increased settlement building, and the statement that an independent Palestine would never exist.

– Sweden became the 135th country to recognize Palestine, and just recently the Vatican has done so. Festivals in Israel reduce their durations, because international participation is down and more and more organizers and entertainers are boycotting apartheid. Joint academic ventures are also on the decline and many Western companies no longer do business with Israeli firms.

The international bully may be able to avoid sanctions from the ICC, FIFA and the UN for a while, but that’s not going to be the case forever. Israel can never hide the fact that it has now become the global pariah, shunned and hated for its appalling crimes against humanity and human rights violations in occupied Palestine.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: UN asked to investigate human rights violations in Libya


BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: UN asked to investigate human rights violations in Libya

The Rusaifa agency writes: the Human Rights Council at the United Nations asked the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to investigate the violations committed in Libya since the fall of the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. All of us activists can sent to the HR commissioner all the documents we have for all the atrocities that occurred from the time of the illegal war in 2011 till today. We have videos, pictures, and very few prisoners who escaped that tell their horror in the hidden prisons that exist in the whole of Libya. We know for a fact that the HRight’s people will do nothing because all these documents that we have will have to go to the ICC which also includes foreign soldiers who were on the ground and unfortunately they have stayed till today, also NATO nations who were involved in these atrocities… but lets take this in good faith will they put in prison their star leader which is Abdelhakim Belhaj? or the phony PM Hassi? How about the lunatic Badi? lets not forget the 2 people the United States kidnapped from Libya and have them in their custody, well now one the other died or so they say during an operation he had and somehow a healthy man died on the operation table it’s just a fortunate coincidence so that he would not address the court and reveal what the American foreign policy together with the CIA did to Libya….

The Human Rights Council of the United Nations to begin an investigation into the crimes since 2014 in Libya violations witnessing the chaos since the fall of the former regime and the dispute adjudicated two governments. Well good luck to them first assailants are the USA, FRANCE, BRITAIN, QATAR, SAUDI ARABIA then come Belhaj and his crew which created 240 militias in Libya to terrorize all Libyan civilians.

Members of the 47 countries in the Council has unanimously adopted a resolution in this sense, the initiative of the African Group and the Group of Arab countries and a large number of EU countries, including France and Britain. Isn’t that grand the same countries that bombed Libya murdered in cold blood the President of the country so that they could have a regime change.. Who are they kidding?

The Council requested in this decision of the High Commission of the United Nations for Human Rights “to immediately send a mission to investigate violations and abuses of international human rights law committed in Libya since the beginning of 2014”. Do not go far, we have all the documents here ABDULHAKIM BELHAJ, BADI RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GARGOUR MASSACRE, TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OF TRIPOLI, You also have Hassi the taxi driver he is also responsible for attacks of HoR in Tobruk you can also look into the Muslim Brotherhood who altogether are financed, protected by the USA/QATAR/SAUDI ARABIA/UN. So you see whatever they say they want to do it’s not going to happen as they are all involved.

The investigators should “establish the facts and circumstances … so that there will be no impunity.” Yes this will happen when hell freezes over.

These will provide the first oral report in September, followed by a written report within a year during the thirty-first meeting of the Council.

The UN Security Council asked the International Criminal Court in February 2011 an investigation into crimes committed in Libya during the events that led Western military intervention after the fall of the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. HERE GOES THE SAYING BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

But can not be available to the Court, means to conduct an investigation because of the chaos that prevails in the country

So the UN is complaining what a shame! Let us help the UN to understand WHY? UN: Libya armed groups attacking human rights defenders

So the UN is complaining what a shame! Let us help the UN to understand WHY? UN: Libya armed groups attacking human rights defenders


Ok! finally the UN is complaining about the situation in Libya and its activists who by the way most of them are expatriates who lied, begged, blackmailed the western world to come and bomb Libya because Qaddafi went crazy and massacred his people who later was proved to be a LIE. The plans of USA and its allies which is France and England ordered the UN to go ahead with the No-fly zone to protect the civilians, so where did all those activists and allies go wrong? I can not imagine that the activists who are CIA assets installed in Libya are naive they knew exactly what they were doing. They are all responsible for the destruction of Libya and have blood on their hands for killing thousands of civilians with depleted uranium bombs, sex slavery, organ trafficking and children trafficking.

These activists that the UN is so worried about their safety are no activists… It says in this article that some activists are being threatened even abroad that is a blatant lie, because colleagues of mine and I included have not been threatened by Armed groups but we have been threatened by secret agencies there is a difference. Lets not forget that the UN and its people like Bernandino Leon are pushing for Muslim Brotherhood to be installed by force in Libya and they are protecting these armed groups so my question to the UN why are you complaining?

These people are your people they are not TRUE LIBYANS they are Libyans born outside Libya and grew up with western ideas which has nothing to do with the Libyan society. I will not say that I am glad that they are killed or kidnapped but I am sure YOU HAVE YOUR AGENDA in not helping them, maybe they found out your true face and they had to be silenced, it will not be the first time or the last.

Your Human Rights defenders where the ones LYING  to the world about the atrocities that supposedly Qaddafi did because your bosses told you so, only to come a year later to deny everything… and you think that the Libyan people have forgotten your role?  You believe that we have forgotten that the Red Cross would supply YOUR freedom fighters with arms instead of helping civilians. Or do you think we have forgotten your “doctors without borders”helped these armed groups to revive prisoners of war so that they would be tortured again?

You have the audacity to claim that the tribes are involved in this killing how dare you? Where were you when the whole of Bani Walid was attacked by your ARMED GROUPS with WHITE PHOSPHORUS AND SARIN gases? You did nothing to help the children and civilians you just stood there SILENTLY and now you are complaining… these groups are your groups you armed them, trained them, financed them and you brought them in Libya. It serves you rightly what is happening now to your people who never had the balls to stand up and say no.

All of you are responsible for what is happening in Libya and still you are insisting to install by force these armed groups who are a menace to society and to the world so that you can please Israel, SHAME ON YOU in destroying so many lives. What is happening now in Libya will happen to you very soon by your own people.

When you decided to illegally bomb Libya you should have thought of all the con’s and pro’s but you were hasty as you thought it was your chance to steal everything from Libya and not considering that you can not control Libya.

Libya by its own right after 42 years has understood its worth we are not the Libyans you thought you left behind in 1969. Every single Libyan after 1969 understood that we were a thorn to your eye because of our geopolitical position, our oil, our gold and other resources. We knew it was a matter of time that you would invade us. What you didn’t know was that we are a STRONG TRIBAL SOCIETY not like the Saudis or the Qataris and Qaddafi knew exactly what he was doing supplying every civilian with arms.

Qaddafi is laughing from his grave because after FOUR YEARS you still can not control us…. and you will never be able to find the recipe of having all the TRIBES united.. but you can not divide them the only tribe you have under your control is Misurata which supplies you the Armed groups that you are complaining now…. You tend to forget that the Misurata people are a mixed race from Jewish and Turkish origin. You believe that they are your friends but they are not they will betray you eventually and by the looks of it they already have. My suggestion, if you want peace in Libya START TALKING TO THE HONORABLE TRIBES AND THE LEGAL GOVERNMENT AND LET GO OF THE TERRORIST GANGS THAT YOU WANT TO INSTALL BY FORCE… because if you do not, things will escalate even worse and terrorists from all the world will come to Libya and then travel to Europe and there is nothing you can do to stop them…  So stop complaining and lift the ban for arms so that the Libyan Army can clean our country.

[JURIST] Armed groups in Libya are deliberately attacking human rights defenders, according to a UN report [text, PDF] released Wednesday. Attacks have increased since fighting escalated in May 2014 and have been documented in a joint report [press release] by the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) [official websites]. Attacks include killings, abductions, torture, unlawful deprivation of liberty and threats via phone and social media. Prominent civil society activist Entissar al-Hassaeri was shot and killed in Tripoli last month [UN report], and two members of the National Commission for Human Rights-Libya, a human rights NGO, were abducted in central Tripoli. Both individuals have been released, but other activists remain missing. Many activists are receiving threats against themselves and their families even after leaving the country. The National Council for Civil Liberties and Human Rights in Libya closed its offices in Tripoli in late 2014 as a result of such threats. Armed groups across all ideological, political and tribal divides are responsible for the attacks after many human rights activists were drawing attention to the widespread human rights abuses across Libya. The joint report stresses a need for stronger state institutions, especially in law enforcement and criminal justice. It also calls upon neighboring countries to issue emergency visas to threatened or attacked human rights activists.

NATO War Crimes In Libya: Deformities of Newborns Because of Depleted Uranium Bombs

NATO War Crimes In Libya: Deformities of Newborns Because of Depleted Uranium Bombs


Regarding this depleted uranium report below, we brought in the first sophisticated radiation detectors with us on our fact finding commission in May of 2011.

Libyans knew that depleted uranium was being used by NATO in their bombing raids and they were very concerned.

There is no doubt that NATO/US broke every agreement imposed by the Geneva Convention.

War crimes against humanity in Libya by NATO and its member countries is unmatched in the world.

This is a crime beyond the wildest imagination, Libya was a naive country, no drugs, no AIDs, very few birth defects, very small number cancer patients – look at the evil left behind by the psychopaths of the one world order.

A new report from Human Rights Watch (better later than never, after backing the US-NATO propaganda during the entire aggression against Libya) has expressed deep concern with the confirmed information of the use, by both France and Britain, of Internationally prohibited weapons on raids in Libya in 2011 under the UN Resolution 1973.


1973 authorized NATO to bomb sites for military yet there were 60,000 bombing raids against civilian targets, great man made river, hospital, hotels, homes, schools, power plants and on and on.

Those NATO countries used bombing Libya with  cluster bombs with depleted uranium radioactive metal, for its ability to penetrate the concrete.


As a result of the saturation of agricultural crops, livestock and water sources that have become seriously polluted with radiation resulting in the appearance of grossly deformed Newborns in Libya as well as the Libyan citizens

In Libya now being recorded by the WHO (world health organization), the highest deformation in fetuses inside Libya and reached 23% of newborns and also the high incidence of new forms of cancer that were not known among ordinary Libyans and now amounting to 18% of the total of cancers that have been diagnosed by the organization’s branch in Libya .


Despite this serious health disaster countries involved with NATO are now demanding that Libya pay them one billion seven hundred million dollars for their help in toppling the Gaddafi regime.

This is beyond absurd, first they stole 500 billion of Libyan money in the EU and the Fed and used it destroy Libya with bombs laden with radiation.

They destroyed the infrastructure, the government and left Libyans with terrorists in charge of their country, 2 million in exile and Libya should pay for this??

The leaders in these corrupt governments are so arrogant they think they can destroy a country and make that country pay for it – Libya already paid and paid – 500 times over.

Despite the fact that these weapons were originally intended for disposal and the US was supposed to pay for the disposal, they should be compensating for Libya because they used it (illegally) to get rid of dangerous weapons arsenal overflowing in storage with the British and French.
