MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry presented Libyan Charge d’Affaires Fatima Mamlouk with a note of demarche in connection with the sentence on Russian citizens Shadrov and Dolgov.
“Libyan Charge d’Affaires Fatima Mamlouk was invited to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday and presented with a note of demarche in connection with the June 4 sentence of the Libyan military court on Russian citizens Alexander Shadrov and Vladimir Dolgov and a group of Ukrainian and Belarusian citizens detained in Tripoli in August 2011,” the ministry said.
The Libyan diplomat was told about “Russia’s bewilderment and indignation at the disproportionately severe and unfair court ruling and the need to keep in mind in the consequent procedures that the aforesaid citizens did not fight on the side of the former regime and were kept in custody for a long period,” the ministry said.
Mamlouk said she would immediately convey the Russian address to the Libyan administration.
“We will energetically continue our efforts, including the filing of the appeal, jointly with Ukrainian and Belarusian partners in order to achieve a revision of the Libyan military court’s ruling and the soonest fair settlement of the problem of the compatriots,” the ministry said.
A Tripoli court sentenced the Ukrainians to ten years in prison on Monday. A citizen of Russia was sentenced to life in jail, and another Russian and three Belarusians were sentenced to ten years.
