Chief Prosecutor of International Criminal Court Tells Security Council He Will Seek Arrest Warrants Soon against Three Individuals in First Libya Case:

    “The Gaddafi regime committed war crimes against Libyan pro-democracy demonstrations, opening fire “systematically” on peaceful protesters, according to a report issued by the prosecutor for the international criminal court (ICC), who will seek arrest warrants against Muammar Gaddafi and two other senior members of his regime later this month.

Addressing the UN security council in New York, the prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, said he will ask judges at the court in The Hague for three warrants. He has not named his suspects but in his report to the UN security council on Wednesdayhe said they were the people who gave the orders for the alleged atrocities. The Guardian has learned from well-informed sources that Gaddafi will top the list, and that his brother-in-law and intelligence chief, Abdullah Senussi, is also likely to be included.”

Rab’a Killings in Egypt Likely Crimes against Humanity:

    The 188-page report, “All According to Plan: The Rab’a Massacre and Mass Killings of Protesters in Egypt,” documents the way the Egyptian police and army methodically opened fire with live ammunition on crowds of demonstrators opposed to the military’s July 3 ouster of Mohamed Morsy, Egypt’s first elected civilian president, at six demonstrations between July 5 and August 17, 2013.



    The massacre of more than 150 opposition supporters and the brutal rape of dozens of women in Guinea’s capital last year were most likely crimes against humanity according to investigators from the International Criminal Court (ICC). The ICC Deputy Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said on 20 February that her recent three-day trip to Conakry had “left [her] with the sentiment that crimes against humanity have been committed”.
