Bulgarian Medics in Libya to See Better Verdicts Now

Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Solomon Passy said the verdics in the Benghazi HIV trial would now be better than they would have been in 2001.

He agreed with Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi who said that the delay of the verdicts of six Bulgarian medics accused of intentionally infecting Libyan children with HIV, has been in their interest.

I can only imagine what the verdicts would have been in the summer of 2001, Passy said commenting media reports after a joint news conference of Colonel Qaddafi and European Commission President Romano Prodi in Brussels.

The Bulgarian medics are charged with the intentional infection of hundreds of children in a Libyan hospital with AIDS. They have been in Libyan custody since 1999.
