Gaddafi Daughter Urges Libyans To Revolt Against New Rulers


Aisha Gaddafi, daughter of Libya’s late leader Muammar Gaddafi, has urged Libyan people to overthrow the new government which came to power “with the planes of NATO,” CBS News reported.

“My father has not left, he is always among us,” CBS News cited her audio message broadcast on Syria’s al-Rai television station on Tuesday.

“Do not forget the orders of your father urging you to continue fighting, even if you no longer hear his voice,” Aisha said.

Gaddafi, who had ruled the country for almost 42 years, was captured and executed by rebels near his home town of Sirte in late October.

Aisha, her mother, Sofia, and brothers Hannibal and Mohammed, accompanied by their children, crossed the border into Algeria on August 29 after the fall of Tripoli. Aisha delivered a child in an Algerian clinic hours after crossing the border.

Aisha could face extradition for her statements, as she and her family members have vowed not to make any public appeals after receiving humanitarian refugee status in Algeria, CBS News said.

Libya’s National Transitional Council has repeatedly demanded that members of Gaddafi’s family be extradited to Libya from Algeria to stand trial.
