it is making me mad that international justice is so slow. we always wait until all these horrible crimes are committed. i understand that this is how the justice system works, but acting now in the ISIS situation could be so essential in preventing more and more horrendous crimes. the ICC could be the solution to the problem and I think they should start the investigation now!

Very Nice article again, and very intresting because it is indeed a big question if Libia can do this properly. It is a big chaos now in that country so let us hope they can try him in an honest and independent way. Compliments to the writer of this article, hoping for more of this kind of articles in the future.

I like this cartoon and this very clear article. It is so obvious that Libya will not and will never allow the ICC to try the son of Qadafi
