ICC prosecutor seeks arrest warrant for Libyan leader


 

Former US diplomat George Kenney says indicting Gaddafi would render any peace talks impossible.

“Having an indictment in the International Criminal Court means that it is more difficult to have negotiations, and if Gaddafi were ever taken out of the picture, it would be more difficult still to have negotiations between the people in Benghazi and the people in Tripoli,” Kenney said.

The former diplomat also suggested that the legal move against the Libyan leader was not only about human rights.

“As a diplomat, I would say that it is not an accident that the prosecutor is seeking an indictment, because that would make the path for the military action easier,”
Kenney declared. “It is not about justice, it is about the political program we have…. I think that the indictment mainly serves to make Western leaders feel like they have accomplished something, more than it does for the end of the fighting.”
