Al-Saadi Gaddafi, late dictator’s son, released from Libyan prison
Al-Saadi Gaddafi, the wannabe sportsman son of the diseased dictator in Libya Muammar Gaddafi, was released from prison in Tripoli on Sunday night, the Government of National Unity and its Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah have confirmed.
Al-Saadi Gaddafi flew immediately from Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport to Turkey’s Istanbul Airport in a private jet, with news confirming that his next stop would be a permanent stay in Egypt.
The release, according to the Prime Minister on Twitter and to the Government of National Unity, came in accordance with a 2018 release order by the court and the approval of the Attorney General to free Gaddafi.
Dbeibah said the step is part of national reconciliation and part of his efforts to release all wrongly held persons in Libyan prisons.
“No innocent people shall remain behind bars. We have to make sure of it. This is how nations are built on justice and fairness.” Dbeibah said.
