Former Gaddafi Regime Officials on Trial

Video shot on April 14, 2014 in Tripoli, Libya
Shows the trial of former Gaddafi regime officials taking place in the Libyan Criminal Court, South of Tripoli.
The trial will resume April 27, 2014. Some of the accused officials were not there including two sons of Gaddafi, Seif al Islam and Al Saidi. Al Saddik Al Sour, the head of the investigation department in the attorney general's office, said they were not brought to the court room for security reasons.

Spokesman Sadiq Al-Sour, Head of Investigations at the Attorney-General’s office:

"The hearing today was postponed until 27 April, 2014. The hearings is for the accused persons Saif Al Islam Moamar Al Gaddafi, Abdullah AL Sanousi, Baghdadi al Mahmoudi, Mansour Dhao , Milad Daman, Mohamed al-Zwai, Abdul Hafeez Alzletunai, Hosni El Woheshi , and others. Today they did not bring the suspect Saif Al islam Moamar el Gaddafi from the institution of reform and rehabilitation in Zintan.
Furthermore they did not get the accused people Mansour Dhao and Milad Daman and four other accused people from the institution of reform and rehabilitation in Misurata.
The prosecution has requested the court today to prepare a report by the Office of the Attorney General to explain that because of the current security conditions the judicial police will not be able to bring them into the courtroom since they are being held in prisons in cities that are far away from Tripoli with a distances exceeding hundreds of kilometers. Because the country is experiencing difficult security conditions, to transfer them to the courtroom would put them in danger as well as create fear of them, especially since some of them are accused of dangerous crimes. In Saadi Ghadafi’s case the indictment is about to be completed and will depend on a decision by the Attorney General whether the case is referred in the next few days to the prosecutor."

Egyptian Court adjourns Al-Khosous tr...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
02 Jun 2013

On Saturday June 1st, Egyptian courts adjourned on the trial of 33 defendants for their involvement in the violence that took place in the town of Al-Khosous, north of Cairo, last April. The violence claimed the lives of seven people, and later sparked further sectarian violence. The trial will resume July 6, 2013.

The case was postponed to hear witnesses for the prosecution and the judge refused the defense’s request to release the defendants on bail.

The public prosecution has accused the defendants of murder, illegal possession of weapons, damage to public and private property, inciting panic and possessing Molotov cocktails.

Though the case is being tried by the Banha Criminal Court, the trial was moved to New Cairo Criminal Court in an attempt to ensure the safety of the accused.

The sectarian violence in Al-Khosous broke out between two families, who happen to be Muslim and Christian in Al-Khosous, north of Cairo after Christian children allegedly painted offensive drawings on the wall of an Islamic institute.

The defense lawyers and relatives of the defendants argue that they are innocent, demanding the formation of a new fact-finding committee.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mohamed Ghareeb, defense lawyer of number of the defendants:
“We would like to say that the state security apparatus still has the same policies like the former regime and they still arrested people from their homes. The defendants were arrested after four or five days of the incident. They do not have any relations with the clashes and they found nothing with them. We ask God to reveal the truth. God willing, they will be announced innocent soon.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Brother of one of the defendants:
“We hope that the authorities form a new fact-finding committee to discover the truth and I accept that my brother being tried if they proved that he is not innocent. There must be a transparency in the investigations.”

The clashes resulted in the killing of a Christian by a Muslim, prompting some Muslim residents to seek retribution. The violence resulted in the deaths of six Christians and one Muslim.

The funeral for four of the Christians was held at St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral two days after the violence in Al-Khosous broke out. Following the funeral, unidentified men attacked mourners outside the cathedral, which prompted rock throwing. Some eyewitnesses reported gunshots.

On the other hand, earlier on Thursday north Cairo court ordered the release of seven people who had been arrested for suspected involvement in clashes outside St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo.

The suspects have been released from police custody with bail set at LE 2000 each. Prosecutors, meanwhile, have appealed the release order.

Tensions Rise as Egyptian Courts to Rule on Defaming Christianity and Islam in Two Separate Cases

In the aftermath of massive protests and violent reactions to the anti-Islam video "The Innocence of Muslims," an undercurrent of tension boils just below the surface as issues of religious defamation rise to the forefront, as seen in two recent court cases in Egypt.

One case involves a young Egyptian Coptic Christian, Alvert Saber, who is being accused of blasphemy and advocating atheism for posting clips of the infamous video online. Saber, who denies posting the clips, is not only accused of insulting Islam, but Christianity as well. Human Rights activists call for his release and advocate for his right to freedom of expression. His trial is set for November 14th.

Abou Islam, head of Umma Islamic channel and chairman of Islamic Enlightenment Center, is accused of publicly and scornfully insulting Christianity after allegedly tearing-up and burning a Bible on Sep 11 outside the US Embassy in Cairo, which he did in response to the film. Islam stated that the book was not a Bible, but a book of Terry Jones, a controversial US evangelical preacher who oversaw the burning of a copy of the Quran in a small Florida church.

Included is video footage of the protests, where violent backlash broke out along with some peaceful demonstrations in several locations including Egypt, Lebanon, Malaysia and Tunisia.

Not one soldier has been charged over the killing of the 12 protesters shot during the violence. Several civilians, including protestors, bystanders and one activist, were charged with the killings. The trial was widely regarded as a farce, and all were eventually exonerated.

Gunfire was audible as soon as the march reached the Maspero building. Even as protesters were fleeing batons, bullets and marauding army APCs that crushed 15 people to death, the media was reporting that “Coptic protesters” were attacking Egypt’s armed forces and had killed soldiers.
Gangs of civilians took to the streets surrounding Maspero and detained anyone they suspected of being Christian.

A total of 33 people were arrested on the night of 9 October and the early hours of 10 October. Of these, two were Muslim: a young person with mental disabilities and a man in his 60s.

An interview with an NGO worker, Hoda Shahed, at the International Republican Institute. Hoda Shahed explains her views of the on-going trial and the departure of the accused foreigners.

Transcription:
0:00 - 0:20 My name is Hoda Shahed, I’m a researcher in political science. My colleagues in the human rights field and defenders of freedom and I were all so confused. We did not understand what was going on.
0:21 - 0:47 At the time we were thinking that it would be solved quickly. We then found out that the case was going on. We were very surprised that after the first session, the judges stepped down from the case and imposed a travel ban on the accused. Why did they do that?
0:48 - 1:02 Why can the foreigners travel after paying two million EGP each?
1:03 - 1:18 The thing my colleagues and I want to know is: If you pay two million as bail. What is the damage to the society?
1:19 - 1:25 And if they really did so much damage for this society that they deserved to pay 2 million each, why did they let them travel?
1:26 - 2:09 I am working at the International Republican Institute and I am in touch with my colleagues. We are Egyptian people working there with the foreigners. The institutions said: we will support you and give you legal aid. But from what I saw after they go to the prosecution and the trial, the employee thought there was someone who would defend them. Finally, all the foreigners who were not Egyptian were allowed to travel. We don’t know about the Egyptians yet.
2:10 - 2:30 I am so disappointed and I feel insulted that we humiliated ourselves with a case that is not more than a misdemeanor, something you can pay a fine for, but they raised it to a felony.
2:31 - 2:39 Now that we took money from them, the charge will be changed to a misdemeanor. I feel we are no better than beggars for taking this money.
2:40 - 3:01 Don’t tell me about the independence of the judiciary. I’ve studied and worked in this field and I did a project before with an NGO on the same topic. I also wrote a book on this to support the independence of the judicial system.
3:02 - 3:33 I was so surprised when I saw the Judges at the press conference, speaking to the people about the case and the progress on it because when we would invite them to come to our seminars, they would always tell us: “We cannot talk to the media, or it could affect the case and our objectivity.” So why are they interested in the public opinion about the case now and show up and talk at a press conference?

Mubarak's trial
Cairo, Egypt
By Peter Youssef
22 Feb 2012

Cairo, Egypt. February 22, 2012

One of the demonstrators came to support the families of the martyrs. He says that the trail is a play. If this happens in other countries there was a clear rule against Mubarak and his men during the 60 days.

The martyrs's families are sitting on the ground, carrying pictures of their sons and asking for Mubarak's execution.

One of the Victims' lawyers tells what happened inside the court hearing. Mubarak's lawyer refused to move him from the International Medical Center to "Tora Prison Hospital". At the hearing, prosecutors told Judge Refaat that the medical wing of Cairo's Tora Prison was ready to receive Mubarak, state television reported.

They said that Tora Prison has the necessary medical facilities to treat Mubarak and that he can be transferred to the prison's hospital.

During the trial, Mubarak has been detained at the military-run International Medical Center due to his poor health condition.

Refaat said that he will look into the prosecutors’ request to transfer Mubarak to Tora Prison Hospital and will issue a decision shortly.

Mubarak’s former Interior Minister, Habib al-Adly, spoke for an hour and a half, saying the uprising was the result of a foreign plot to destabilize Egypt.

Adly spoke of a “conspiracy” against Egypt, blaming foreigners for the killing of protesters in the uprising that unseated the Egyptian president.

“I reaffirm before you that there were foreign saboteurs who desecrated Egypt's pure land and were supported by internal criminal elements with the aim of undermining Egypt's international and regional standing and attempting to destabilize its political, security and economic stability,” he said.

He blamed Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas for sending infiltrators to Egypt, and said the plot against Egypt was continuing to this day.

Adly said the plot involved “killing peaceful protesters, storming prisons to free terrorists and criminals, vandalizing public and private properties and burning police officers inside their vehicles.”

Dozens of police officers were also killed during the uprising.

Adly defended himself and the police against the charge of murder, drawing applause from some police officers standing at the back of the courtroom.
