Following the issue of arrest warrants for each of Muammar Gaddafi, Saif-el-Islam Gaddafi and Abdulla Senussi, and following the official reaction of the National Transitional Council in Benghazi, Lawyers for Justice in Libya has received official reactions from a number of key areas in Libya which remain under the control of, or threat of attack from, government forces.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has today issued arrest warrants for Moammer Gadaffi, Saif-el-Islam Gadaffi and Abdulla Senussi on two charges of crimes against humanity: murder, and persecution.
Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) welcomes this decision and strongly believes that the issuance of these warrants publicly signals to the regime that impunity will not be tolerated for the perpetrators of crimes against humanity and those responsible for widespread atrocities. LFJL can confirm through its research on the ground that there is evidence that crimes against humanity have been committed.
