Dbeibeh’s government is not assisting us in the “Abu Agila” case, says his nephew
The nephew of Abu Agila Masud al-Marimi, Abdel Moneim al-Marimi, revealed the futility of their appeal to the US authorities and international organisations to allow them to communicate with Abu Abu Dhabi and verify its health.
Abdel Moneim said in a press statement that their demand is an inherent right that is guaranteed to them by all international declarations and covenants related to human rights, noting that Libya’s PM Abdelhamid Dbeibeh did not provide support or help and did not even instruct the Libyan ambassador to US to follow the trial procedures of Abu Agila.
Abu Agila’s nephew added that the US defence team sent them a contract to examine the articles and the costs incurred, they presented the draft contract to a number of Libyan attorneys for review and they have some notes, which were transferred to the U.S. defence team to be amended for final signing.
Abu Agila al-Marimi, accused of making the bomb that blew up Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie in Scotland in 1988, is shown listening in this courtroom sketch during an initial court appearance in the US District Court in Washington, DC, on December 12, 2022.
