Libya: Son of former senior Libyan official who faces assassination speaks to Lizzie Phelan - November 12, 2011

Libya: Son of former senior Libyan official who faces assassination speaks to Lizzie Phelan - November 12, 2011 Independent journalist Lizzie Phelan who has been covering the Libyan crisis since it began speaks to Hamid Dorda, the son of Dr Abuzed Dorda. Once Libyan Prime Minister, Permanent Representative to the UN and head of intelligence, Dr Abuzed Dorda's life is now in grave danger. In contravention of international law and with human rights organisations and the UN itself turning a blind eye, Dr Dorda has suffered torture, inhumane and severe mistreatment and numerous attempts on his life since NTC forces detained him on September 11. His health is deteriorating and he remains untreated since October 25 for internal bleeding and broken bones. His family are being refused the right to visit him. Dr Dorda enjoyed a large base of popular support, being seen as one of the least incorruptible figures in libyan politics and society. If he is assassinated or left to die from his injuries, it will be a considerable blow for the already bleak prospects of a stable and just political future in Libya. .... An NGO sent me the following appeal. Below is the name of the woman that must be harassed if anything is to be done to help Dorda and hopefully find Zidan. Annika Norlin Head of Sector Africa Central Tracing Agency and Protection Division International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC Geneva, Switzerland Tel. +41-22-7302119 The ICRC - working to protect and assist people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence. Find out more: Email her constantly/ demand that she reply with verified information, because that is her job at the ICRC. Mari has been staying on top of her constantly but a few thousand more people-pressure must surely help. ...... The following is taken from: HERE ARE SOME THINGS WE CAN ALL DO TO HELP DR.
