Skip to comments.Gaddafi's death may be war crime: ICC prosecutor
Posted on 12/15/2011 11:45:37 PM PST by Olog-hai
The death of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was captured and killed by rebels in October, may have been a war crime, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court said on Thursday.
"I think the way in which Mr. Gaddafi was killed creates suspicions of ... war crimes," ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo told reporters.
"I think that's a very important issue," he said. "We are raising this concern to the national authorities and they are preparing a plan to have a comprehensive strategy to investigate all these crimes."

So is the ICC going to serve a warrant on itself?
The ICC can go F itself.
Heh. That’d be amazing to see happen.
If he is arrested, US forces should be sent to rescue him, European LEO lives be damned! And collateral, too, while I'm at it!
Senor Moreno-Ocampo should go get a real job.
He has one. He is Grand Inquisitor of the Holy Transnational Globalist Putsch.
They have been doing that for years..
Do something useful, ICC. Charge our Sociopath of State with war crimes. Then dissolve yourselves, you worthless UNaccountable bureaucrats.
Who died and left the ICC boss of anything?....
I think the point is simply to keep the bureaucratic process churning. Imagine the ICC would run out of cases...why, it could just be dissolved.
Has anyone actually been indicted, let alone prosecuted by said court? I don’t see them going after a single Islamist butcher, like Bin Laden, Zarqawi, ad. nauseum. or is that spot just reserved for American presidents and other who manage to take out a dictator/butcher or two?
ICC and the UN can both rot.
I grudgingly agree. However, I'd demand a minimum of three years of careful planning before attempting the jailbreak.
Did you hear about what he and his sons did to his famed female bodyguards? Forced circumcisions and frequent rape after which they were passed around to other high ranking officials. Sounds like some of them were forced to join the "guard" in the first place as well. If he was cornholed then he got what was coming to him. He should have made the smart play and fled the country while he still could.
Mind you I wasn't happy with this "regime change", I fear the coming theocracy. But we should all be glad that this SOB is dead.
Good thing the ICC wasn't around when they hung Mussolini.
“The death of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was captured and killed by rebels in October, may have been a war crime...”
I do believe there’s a self-serving interest among elites when they try to call the death of Gaddafi a “war crime.”
The elites damn well know that the people throughout the world are in favor of dragging dictators and thieving government bureaucrats into the street and hanging them from the nearest lamppost. The elites are hoping to postpone their just reward at the hands of the people they’ve enslaved and murdered.
A trial at a UN run ICC court will assure that they won’t be hanged. They’ll also get to keep their illicit fortunes and receive a 2 year prison sentence at a posh resort, before being released to infest the world again.
Kiang Guek Eav, the butcher who ran the evil Khmer Rouge S-21 prison, got 35 years for his part in murdering 17,000 Cambodians. Only 12 people survived his hand. It’s expected he’ll be released soon because he’s in poor health.
Last year when I went to Villa Carlotta, I was looking for a sign or indication of where they gunned down Benny and his bimbo, but no dice.
As bad as Gaddafi was, what replaces him will be worse.
There it is. It doesn’t say exactly where it is though. I would figure it to be a minor tourist attraction at least.
Oh I agree with you 100 percent about Gaddafi being dead, he should have been taken out decades ago, unfortunately he had a lucky night when our F-111s and A-6s came calling back in ‘86.
I just hope the joker who got the wild notion to explore Gaddafi’s personal Hershey Highway got properly tested later.
They must have had it put away the day we went :)
Thank you Impy; will forward to g/f.
The account I read said it was done with a metal rod of some kind, not the guy’s junk. I hope he threw it away after, that’s not something you want to keep around to show the grandkids. ;d
