        According to the newspaper, a mission of the Human Rights organization ‘Human Rights Watch’ recently met Ibn E-Sheikh El-Libi in prison.

        In January, Libya has asked the U.S. to extradite nine Libyans detained since 2002 in the prison of Guantanamo.

I read your article with interest. Have any of these men had their proper legal due processes by the USA and Libya?

Are you kidding? Legal proceedings in Libya? They were burned and buried by Muammar in September 1969. It is the US to be blamed for his death, he should have never been handed over to a regime that knows no Justus or human rights.
