Gaddafi’s daughter seeks Tunisian lawyer’s help in case against NATO

Tunis, Nov. 8 (Xinhua-ANI): A daughter of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Aisha, has requested a Tunisian lawyer’s help in suing NATO for her father’s death, Tunisian Shems FM reported Thursday.

The radio said Aisha has requested the service of Bechir Essid in cases against NATO, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates for their roles in the ill-treatment and slaying of her father and brothers.

In a statement to the radio, Essid confirmed the news, adding that he had been in touch with the Algerian president to request permission to travel to Algeria to see his client.

Essid was also the lawyer of former Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmoudi, who was extradited by Tunisian authorities a few months ago, following the issuing of an extradition request by Libya’s new authorities. (Xinhua-ANI)
