Libya's FM: Our International Image is Perfect
This answer came as Minister Abd al-Rahman Muhammad Shalgham was asked why Libya risks its image before the international community with the confirmation of the death sentences for the medics.
Shalgham said Libya's government has no interest in sentencing to death six innocent people.
"There are thousands of Bulgarians in Libya and the authorities there have no benefit from imprisoning six innocent persons. In this sense the country's image is not in danger," Shalgham said.
He explained this is not the final verdict and the HIV case goes for consideration to Libya's Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court confirms the verdicts, the case will go to Libya's highest judiciary body, the Supreme Council of Justice.
Asked whether he could give any guarantees that the Supreme court will not confirm the verdicts, Shalgham said when there is a conflict between two countries, it is settled in the court room and he in no way can tell the court what decisions to make.
"No one can influence the decision of the independent Libyan Court, but if the EU is compassionate with the pain of the infected children, there may be further talks to continue the humanitarian plan," Shalgham added.
