KHABAROVSK, November 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russia insists the International Criminal Court investigates the murder of former Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists on Monday on the way to Honolulu.
“Now the International Criminal Court should investigate how he [Muammar al-Gaddafi] was killed. Prisoners must not be killed. It is necessary to ensure their security. Whether prisoners are killed, a military crime is committed. And this is one of the reasons for what the International Criminal Court can and must interfere in,” the minister stressed.
“We respect the position by human rights activists. But when for the sake of human rights [the military operation in Libya was conducted to protect human rights] people are killed and when one say until the regime is changed, civilians will be posed a threat, then peaceful civilians are becoming subject of bargaining and their lives are the cost for achieving geopolitical goals.” “The main right of a person is the right to life. It was grossly violated in Libya,” Lavrov pointed out.
