    Prosecutors: Senior Libyan officials offer information to war crimes court case

    By Associated Press, Updated: Sunday, May 15, 3:45 PM

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands - Senior officials in the embattled government of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi have come forward to offer evidence to the International Criminal Court in its investigation of widespread murder and persecution, prosecutors said Sunday.

    "During the last week, the Office of the Prosecutor received several calls from high-level officials in Gadhafi's regime willing to provide information," prosecutors said in a statement. They did not elaborate on the nature of the information or name the officials.

    Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said he will file a 74-page document with nine annexes outlining allegations that the Libyan regime has systematically attacked civilians since launching a brutal crackdown on anti-government rebels in February.

    The document will ask judges to issue arrest warrants for the three Libyan leaders considered most responsible for crimes against humanity.

    Moreno-Ocampo has not revealed the names of the three, but Gadhafi is widely expected to be among them.

    Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said Thursday said he expected the ICC to ask for Gadhafi's arrest, which would complicate any suggestion of the Libyan leader accepting exile as a way to end the conflict in his country.

    Judges will study the evidence presented Monday before deciding whether to issue arrest warrants for the suspects, a process likely to take weeks.

    The prosecutor said in a statement Sunday his investigation already is so advanced he is "almost ready for trial."

    Investigators from the Hague-based court have conducted 30 missions to 11 countries and have interviewed more than 50 witnesses, including "key insiders," as well as reviewing videos, photographs and other evidence, prosecutors said Friday.

    The United Nations Security Council ordered Moreno-Ocampo to investigate atrocities in Libya and that means that if judges issue an arrest warrant for Gadhafi every U.N. member state will be obliged to arrest him.

    The Hauge ni kwa ajili ya kuwaadhibu watu na viongozi wa nchi wanaobishia maslahi ya wababe tu.

    We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush's compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic. Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden's, and he is not a "suspect" but uncontroversially the "decider" who gave the orders to commit the "supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole" (quoting the Nuremberg Tribunal) for which Nazi criminals were hanged: the hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of refugees, destruction of much of the country, the bitter sectarian conflict that has now spread to the rest of the region.

    Gaddafi aliliona hilo na alilisemea.

    No international criminal court
    Kofi Annan has sent us a letter and said: I plead you to approve the Rome international criminal court. No, no, no. I have sent him a letter and I shall hand it out to all world leaders. This must be the stance of the whole Mathaba. We can only approve this criminal court of Rome if we impose our conditions, because this court will try us only and will not try them. It is not in our interest, my brother leaders, for anything to proceed from the United Nations as long as the domination is by one single state, because everything will be in its interest...

    I can tell you that Libya will never approve this court in the light of the current conditions. Never. Because we are convinced that a CIA director would not be brought to be tried before this court, while he perpetrated crimes such as the assassination of Salvador Allende, Cabral, Lumumba or took part in the liquidation of any other person...

    Koussa among defectors 'helping Nato bomb secret Gaddafi sites'

    Gaddafi ex-loyalist is black box of regime, say Libyan officials as UK military calls for more air strikes despite deadly hostel hit

    A network of Libyan defectors, including the former regime stalwart Moussa Koussa, are helping Nato to destroy Muammar Gaddafi's military sites, including bunker complexes from which much of the war has been run, according to senior officials in Libya.

    Nato planners have stepped up their operations over the capital, Tripoli, and the western mountains in recent days, despite a strike on the eastern city of Brega early on Friday that killed up to 11 people, many of them Islamic clerics.

    But British defence chiefs are applying pressure on other Nato countries to escalate the bombing campaign against Gaddafi amid deepening concerns that military action will end in stalemate.

    Nearly two months since the start of air strikes, they fear divisions within Nato and at the UN will lead to fewer sorties just at a time when, they claim, the regime is starting to feel the pinch and even its core support showing signs of cracking.

    Despite almost nightly air strikes, and increasing numbers of daylight attacks on the outskirts of Tripoli, the capital remains under regime control. The city is free of checkpoints and any opposition elements are maintaining a low profile. Discontent – for now – seems directed at France, Britain and Italy, whom residents blame for a critical fuel shortage.

    But there is growing anger towards former regime loyalists, first among them Koussa, who defected to Britain in early April after more than 30 years as Gaddafi's most trusted henchman.

    The former foreign minister and intelligence chief is understood to have passed on "invaluable" details of the dictator's police state, including the precise location of the regime's most sensitive sites.

    "He was the 'black box' of the regime," said an unnamed official who worked with Koussa. "I was with him the day before he left and nobody knew that he was going to do that. Why did he do it? I'd say he must have been emotionally weak. Things must have got to him."

    After spending a month in Britain, Koussa is now in Qatar, from where he is believed to be helping Nato map targets
