Honouring The Dictator
8th June 2009INTERNATIONAL
Dear Professor Lobrano,
I am a Libyan citizen and a British naturalized citizen living in the UK. I have learned from the media that the Law School at the University of Sassari is planning to honour the dictator Moamar Gathaffi, the illegitimate ruler of Libya.
My brother was among 1200 or more prisoners massacred in the infamous prison of Abusaleem in Tripoli in June 1996 on the orders of Gathafi. Many Libyans had been murdered, hanged in universities or public squares, killed in European cities or simply disappeared without trace under Gathafi’s regime.
I refer you to this link which documents Gathafi’s atrocities against humanity. I also refer you to the following a small parts of terrorist acts committed by Gathafi, which I published few years ago.
I strongly urge you to reconsider honouring this criminal dictator and do the right thing by refusing to offer Gathaffi any honour.
