Washington Times: Europe Horrified of Nurses' Verdicts in Libya

Date: 26.12.2006

All across Europe, appeals for mercy for the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor sentenced to death in Libya are growing louder and louder, the Washington Times wrote.

The fate of the six has now become a major test of Libya's international acceptance, the paper claims, adding that EU members have already started expressing their horror at the verdict from last Tuesday.

The EU has formally denounced the verdict, pointing out that Western experts were not even allowed to testify.

The UN and the states have also expressed their dismay by the verdicts, the Washington Post reminds.

The six were re-sentenced to death for allegedly infecting 426 Libyan children with HIV. They have spent over eight years jailed in Libya, where they were tortured into confessing.
