Colonel Gaddafi’s Attorney Appeals to UN Claiming Misuse of Security Council Resolution Against Libya

LONDON, England — As the U.S. and European allies begin airstrikes against Libya, Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi’s attorney has contacted the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon requesting intervention over the US and UK’s abuse of the UN Security Council Resolution 1973.

In a letter to UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, Attorney Giovanni Di Stefano  protested the attacks against Libya claiming,

“We must ask that action be taken on this forthwith because it seems to us that both recidivist countries are simply sponsoring a civil war, supporting those that oppose Col. Gaddafi and pretending with the similar masquerade of hypocricy exhibited in the Yugoslav conflict and Iraq for their own gain and purposes.”

Along with the letter sent to Ki-Moon, Di Stefano forwarded a letter previously sent to International Criminal Court Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo citing crimes against humanity by the U.S. and U.K. in their alliance to force a regime change in Libya.

Even though thousands of regime supporters have gathered in Tripoli along with the Libyan military in order to receive weapons and defend themselves against the U.S. and U.K. invasion, President Obama stated,

“Our consensus was strong, and our resolve is clear. The people of Libya must be protected, and in the absence of an immediate end to the violence against civilians our coalition is prepared to act, and to act with urgency”

Besides the U.K., other U.S. allies are currently  positioning forces to join in the strikes against Libya. Such allies include Italy, France, Canada and Denmark. Germany is standing by but has not yet deployed forces to assist in the strikes against Libya.
