It is hard to find anything positive to say about the NATO assault on Libya, 2011. It is now common knowledge that what the Americans did was help the Al Qaida affiliated groups to power.
Since then, Libya, a country still controlled by the West, has plunged into a dehumanizing civil war, with various war lords controlling prisons and terrorizing the local population, without the US or EU stopping this horror.
Today, nine years ago, the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was brutally killed in Libya. As the Libyan civil war rages on, we would like to republish this article, which sums up the level of injustice done to the family members of leaders who have fallen out of favor in the West. In this case, the wife and daughter of Muammar Gaddafi.
And Gaddafi’s wife, former First Lady of Libya, Mme. Safia Farkash and his daughter Aisha Gaddafi is still under travel ban, with little or no access to their private bank accounts that were frozen in 2011.
This is the Western procedure, to freeze the bank accounts of citizens that are not indictedd or tried in any court of law? To ban them from travelling indefinitely?
Since when was this kind of treatment a Western, “civilized” way of treating national leaders’ families?The women are subjected to homelessness and forced displacement. They are looking for lost rights in the absence of justice in international courts and the absence of law in their country, which almost denies them the right to live in it. What is their criminal acts, which are in violation of international humanitarian and humanitarian law, since they are treated as criminals in the Western system?
