Mauritania Extradites Gaddafiís Former Master Spy to Face Justice in Libya

The government of Mauritania has extradited on Wednesday Gaddafi's former intelligence chief and close assistant Abdullah al-Senussi, a major accomplishment by the new democratic government in Libya which will lead to more peace and stability in the country.

Security sources in Tripoli have confirmed to The Tripoli Post that al-Senussi has already arrived in Libya and he is now in secure place awaiting trial for crimes committed against the Libyan people.

The extradition of Senussi sends a message to the remnants of the pro-Gaddafi elements who are now outside Libya that they will be hunted down and brought back to face justice in Libya.

Egyptian government is providing safe heaven to hundreds of Gaddafiís men who took part in crimes against Libyans and committed corruption as senior officials in various government post and institutions.

A Mauritanian government source told the media on Wednesday that al-Senussi "was extradited to Libya on the basis of guarantees given by Libyan authorities."

In March, Mr Senussi was held at Nouakchott airport in Mauritania after flying in from Morocco.

In June 2011, the International Criminal Court in The Hague issued a warrant for Mr Senussi for crimes against humanity alleged to have been carried out in Benghazi, the main base of the Libyan opposition during the revolt last year.

He has been accused of playing a major role in Tripoliís Abu Salim prison massacre of 1996 in which over 1270 political prisoners were gunned down within less than three hours.

As the closest assistant to the dead dictator for decades, Senussi knew too much information about all crimes committed by Gaddafi and his regime against the Libyan people and also around the world.

He is believed to have information about Libyans kidnapped and assassinated abroad.

France has already sentenced Mr Senussi to life imprisonment for the shooting down of a UTA airliner over Niger in 1989 in which 170 people were killed.

fairtrial and justice should reign and anybody that did any crime against other humans should be made to face the full cause of the law.
This is the best moment to see Sanussi in Libya , because he did all the crimes and he should killed.
