Libya takes legal action against NATO for attempt on Kadhafi's life

Libya has undertaken legal proceedings before the 'competent courts' against the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and its allies for attempting to assassinate the country's leader, Mouammar Kadhafi, an official source said here Wednesday.

On Sunday, Kadhafi's office, located in his residence at Bab Al-Aziziya in Tripoli, was totally destroyed by the air strikes launched by NATO. Legal services at the Libyan General People's Committee said Wednesday that 'NATO, on 25 April, bombarded the administrative building at Bab Al-Aziziya, used for administrative purposes and this was in an attempt to assassinate Kadhafi,' the Libyan News Agency (JANA) said.

The Libyan judicial services said 'with regard to the violation of the international law, which this criminal act represents, the absence of all basis on international legality, as well as its violation of the content of the 1970 and 1973 UN Security Council resolutions, the legal competent services at the Libyan General People's Committee for Justice have undertaken actions for a complaint before the specialized courts against NATO and those responsible for those acts.'
