AIDS Infected Libyans Want Money, not Death Sentences

Date: 13.09.2006

The lawyers of the families of the AIDS infected children from Benghasi demanded a compensation of some 10-15 million Libyan dinars (LYD) or 1.6 million dollars for each of the AIDS infected children. The defence didn't plead death sentences for the accused Bulgarian medics.

After a request of lawyer Osman Byzanti the hearing of the speeches by the defence was postponed till September 21. After their speeches the court must decide on the sentence for the medics who have spent more than seven years in Libyan prison.

In the meantime, a French lawyer who wasn't allowed to take part in yesterday's court sitting, commented the trial.

"Libya has no interest to acquit the Bulgarian medics, because it would have to find someone else to be blamed for the infection," lawyer Emmanuel Altit told France Info radio. In his opinion, it's possible that the victims are not only the 450 children, but thousands of people. The death sentences would allow the guilty to remain unpunished and receive money, Altit explained.
