TUNIS, Tunisia – Khaled Al-Ghwail, the lawyer of Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif Al-Islam al-Gaddafi, spoke about Gaddafi’s potential presidential run from Tunis on Wednesday.
During the interview, Al-Ghwail stated that Gaddafi “has many supporters”, even amongst those who “were previously committed to the agenda of events on February 17.” This was in reference to those who were against Muammar Gaddafi during the Libyan civil war.
“Saif al-Islam will perform at the right time, and then all the masks will fall, and all the ins and outs will be revealedm” Al-Ghwail said.
“Libya will return to its road map, again become democratic, sovereign and the law will prevail in it”, Al-Ghwail continued, and concluded by saying “the Libyan people must decide for themselves their own destiny.”
Muammar Gaddafi was removed in an imperialist-backed war against Libya because of its independent foreign policy and state-control of Libya’s vast oil. He was killed during the so-called “Arab Spring” or more accurately the “Arab Winter” in 2011 after being captured, beaten and sodomized. His murderers who had the backing of NATO were the same jihadists seen in Syria today who were portrayed by mainstream media as “moderate rebels”.
Today Libya is a ruined state after being the most advanced in Africa prior to the Arab Winter. Many see Muammar’s son as Libya’s only hope to bring peace, stability and prosperity back to the country.
