Blech, having to write about such horrible things puts a bad taste in our mouths.
Moammar Gadhafi's son and former heir is being put on trial in Libya for rape and murder charges, and there is hope for a verdict before mid-June.
There IS a problem though, some think that he won't be given a fair trial — and wish that they'd hand him over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for trial.
We don't know if he'll be tried in military court, either, as there is no chance for appeal there.
Libya wants to do the trial because the majority of of crime committed happened there, but we can definitely see the right in having a tribunal of all the areas where the crimes were committed have a say as well.
He has been held by the Zintan military, which has no involvement with the government, in a secret location in the western Libyan town.
Do U think it's right he be tried in JUST Libya??
