The detention of Hannibal Gaddafi in Lebanon is a cheap extortion process

In a statement, the committee formed by the Libyan Presidential Council considered that there is no legal, criminal or political justification for the continued detention of Hannibal Muammar Gaddafi In Lebanon.

She described this as a cheap extortion process that condemns its perpetrators before anyone else.

The committee called on the Libyan Presidential Council, the Government of National Unity, the Presidency of Parliament, as well as the European Union to put pressure on the Lebanese authorities for his unconditional release.

It also called on the committee to communicate with the Arab League, organizations of the Islamic world and the United Nations Human Rights Committee to discuss the issue of Hannibal.

The committee also held officials in Lebanon responsible for Hannibal’s safety and the consequent legal and judicial prosecutions and material and moral compensation.

A few days ago, he was admitted to the hospital yesterday due to the deterioration of his health, as he was “suffering from severe infections in the spine and a drop in blood pressure, as a result of his hunger strike.”

Since the third of June, Hannibal Gaddafi has continued his open hunger strike, in protest against the Lebanese judiciary’s continued detention of him for 8 years, in a move that would bring his file back to the fore again.

In December 2023, Hannibal Gaddafi, son of the late Libyan president, completed 8 years in prison in Lebanon for the crime of concealing information in the case of the unseen Imam Musa al-Sadr and his two companions, Sheikh Muhammad Yaqoub and journalist Abbas Badr al-Din, who disappeared in Libya in 1978, after he was arrested in December 2015 when He was like a “political refugee” in Syria, before he was kidnapped from there and handed over to the Lebanese services.

Throughout these years, the son of the late Libyan leader did not provide any new information about the fate of the unseen Shiite leader Imam Musa al-Sadr and his two companions, and the judicial investigator has not yet issued his indictment.
