NATO Faces ICC War Crimes Probe For The Death Of Gaddafi And Thousands of Libyans Tags: Muammar Gaddafi Libya News Northern Africa News Famous Africans
The prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC) says his office will investigate alleged crimes committed by NATO during the civil war and intervention in Libya along with those of the Gaddafi regime and the rebels.
 
Luis Moreno Ocampo did not provide any details on allegations against NATO forces as he reported to the UN Security Council on Wednesday.
The ICC will probe into war crimes allegedly committed by anti-Gaddafi forces, including persecution of civilians, killings of combatant captives and the death of the former Libyan leader himself, the prosecutor said.
 
The investigation however will focus on alleged crimes of the ousted regime and particularly on those attributed to Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam and his head of intelligence al-Senussi. Both men are still at large, presumed to be somewhere in Libya.
 
"It is up to the UN Security Council and states to ensure that they face justice for the crimes for which they are charged," Ocampo said.
 
Russia backs the ICC’s effort and hopes that all parties which violated the international law will be brought to justice, the country’s deputy envoy to UN Sergey Karev said.
 
"The number of civilian casualties and damage to civilian infrastructure from actions of all the belligerent parties in Libya is are very high. Unfortunately, actions of the NATO-led coalition resulted in civilian deaths too,” the diplomat said. He added that Moscow expects “all those guilty of serious crimes – according to the international law – committed in Libya will be punished.”
 
Karev added that Russia fears that the new Libyan leaders, who promised a full investigation into the death of Gaddafi, will fail to deliver.
 
“We can’t help but doubt that a proper investigation will be possible immediately in the country, with ruined governing structure and virtually no functioning law enforcement or prosecution bodies,” he said.
 
Russia calls on the ICC to closely monitor the investigation, and “if at some point the Libyan side will for some reason be unable to perform such an investigation, the ICC will have to take over,” the diplomat explained.

Obama: the highest manifestation of African petty bourgeois opportunism Tags: Barack Obama Barack Obama and Africa African News
The African petty bourgeois class’ future depends on selling their services and their souls to imperialism, in exchange for lucrative jobs and personal gains, at the expense of African people. 
 
U.S. president Barack Obama represents the apex of that trajectory of treason.
 
A bigger betrayal of Africa cannot be found than Obama, than the assault on Africa under the leadership of a black man.
 
In his term, this black man has ordered the murders of both Osama bin Laden and Muammar Gaddafi.
 
Obama has led the first AFRICOM assault on Africa, has consolidated the split of Sudan, currently is leading the daily murder of Africans in Somalia with barbaric drone assaults, and has just sent U.S troops into Uganda to intensify the war in central Africa.
 
Obama belongs to the class of historical traitor figures that includes the likes of Mobutu, Bokassa, Compaore, and the sell-out ANC, which voted for the UN resolution that gave NATO airplanes the legal cover to bomb Libya and murder Gaddafi and African peoples in Libya.

Nelson Mandela's Smuggled Script Discovered Tags: Nelson Mandela South Africa News Famous Africans Southern Africa News newsletter2011 African News
Nelson Mandela's biography The Long Walk to Freedom became an international bestseller and is being made into a film. But the famous book may never have seen the light of day if it wasn't for the bravery and persistence of another Robben Island inmate.

"We were housed in individual cells, each cell had a window looking out into the corridor. Warders patrolled day and night, lights were on 24 hours a day."
 
Mac Maharaj was one of four long-term prisoners on Robben Island secretly collaborating on the first draft of the autobiography of Nelson Mandela - along with other Africa National Congress activists Ahmed Kathrada and Walter Sisulu.
 
"Mandela had to write every night. He wrote on average 10-15 pages with very little reference material - he wrote by discussion and recollection," says the 76-year-old.
 
"The next morning it would circulate to Kathrada and Sisulu for their comments, which would come back to me to transcribe. And the next night he would write another 10-15 pages."
 
Both men would sometimes feign illness so they could stay in the grounds and spend their time working alone in the prison quadrangle. Writing was strictly a night time affair, but this was their opportunity to discuss the copy and the edits.
 
Their determination to write overcame the fear of being caught.
 
"We were living in a society where the history of our struggle was not covered anywhere - not even in academia. Everything in history was the history about the white man.
 
"So that in itself was an exciting exercise to put down on paper the life of one man who was so central [to the struggle], and whose autobiography was really a political autobiography. One had a sense that Mandela had already become a national and international figure and that it would be an inspiration to read our history."

Model Fired For Gaddafi Sympathies Tags: Muammar Gaddafi Libya News Northern Africa News Famous Africans
Considering the Gaddafi family to be “normal people” can cost you a job, as a German-based model discovered after an interview about her relationship with Muammar Gaddafi's son Mutassim.
 
US-born Italian model Vanessa Hessler, 23, dated Mutassim Gaddafi for four years. The interview with Hessler was released after her former lover was captured and killed alongside his father Muammar in October.
 
“I didn't have any contact with him since the uprising broke out, but our relationship was one of passion. The Gaddafi family is not as they are being depicted. They are normal people,” Hessler was quoted in Italian magazine Diva e Donna.
 
“We, France and the United Kingdom, financed the rebels, but people don't know what they are doing,” she added.
 
These comments cost Hessler her long-term contract with Telefónica Germany. They chose to terminate their partnership with the blonde model for “failing to distance herself from her comments on the conflict in Libya.”
 
This is despite Hessler being a household figure in Germany, with giant Telefónica posters featuring the model prominent in many German cities.
During an attempt to hold talks with the company, Hessler chose to stand by her comments.
 
The company vowed to remove her face from all their PR-material within 24 hours.
