The mock trial of former officials of the Jamahiriya resumed in the Da’esh-controlled Tripoli Court of Appeals today.
Most defense attorneys were absent. The majority of prisoners have no legal counsel.
No witnesses have been able to testify for fear of assassination or imprisonment.
Saif Gaddafi’s continued absence was not addressed. Neither were the terms of his sentencing discussed.
Da’esh judges stated today was the final day defense teams (absent or non-existent) had the opportunity to present their closing arguments on behalf of the accused.
Verdicts will be announced on July 28th.
