"We have Plan A, Plan B, Plan C. Plan A is to live and die in Libya. Plan B is to live and die in Libya. Plan C is to live and die in Libya."

BREAKING: Interpol issues "Orange Notice" to aid enforcement of UN sanctions on Libyan regime - #feb17 #libya - libyafeb17.com/2011/03/breaki
15 minutes ago

17:25 Interpol says it issued its orange notice about Col Gaddafi to aid the enforcement of UN sanctions on Libya and help the International Criminal Court carry out an investigation into alleged human rights abuses in recent weeks. The aim of the notice is to pool intelligence to make sure the named individuals cannot get around the UN-imposed travel ban or asset freeze, Interpol says.

Morocco Stands With the Libyan People
Posted on March 4, 2011 by main

On March 4, 2011 in Fusha, Morocco

Moroccan Speaker: The UN (should) send airstrikes to whom foreign elements seek recourse. It is our right to demand this and that there should be devastating airstrikes against those involved on the ground in the channels of oppression and massacre suffered by the Libyan people

Algeria, the Algerian government is implicated against the Libyan people. (For sending Polisario mercenaries an Algerian-back Saharan separist group to Libya.)

17:55 The Guardian: An improvised force of revolutionaries has been pushed back to the central square in Zawiyah, where about 2,000 anti-Gaddfi protesters are getting ready to make a last stand, a rebel spokesman has told Reuters. Youssef Shagan said: We are on the square, all of our forces are here. The square is safe but they (government forces) are attacking from east and west. We will fight until the end. They have now started trying to go into the city to try to retake it.

INTERPOL media release
04 March 2011


INTERPOL issues global alert following threat identified in UN sanctions resolution targeting Libya's Colonel Al-Qadhafi and others
Member states police encouraged to share information requested by International Criminal Court Prosecutor via INTERPOL


View Orange notice
LYON, France - INTERPOL has issued a global alert known as an Orange Notice against Colonel Al-Qadhafi and 15 other Libyan nationals, including members of his family and close associates, in a bid to warn member states of the danger posed by the movement of these individuals and their assets, to assist member states in their efforts to enforce sanctions under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970 (2011), and to support INTERPOL's assistance to the International Criminal Court investigation into alleged crimes against humanity in Libya.

With identifying information on each of the subjects on the UN travel ban and asset freeze list added to INTERPOL's databases and circulated to frontline law enforcement officers at key areas such as border control points, INTERPOL's alert will help ensure that law enforcement in each of the world police body's 188 member countries will be able to take all necessary measures to protect civilians and to enforce travel bans against all 16 Libyan nationals, as well as the assets freeze targeting six of them. The individuals subject to the Orange Notice have been identified as being involved in or complicit in planning attacks, including aerial bombardments, on civilian populations.

INTERPOL's alert will see its Command and Co-ordination Centre at its General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon liaise with its National Central Bureaus to pool and update all relevant intelligence to ensure that the Libyan nationals are not able to circumvent the travel ban or the assets freeze.

With the UN Security Council referring recent events in Libya to the International Criminal Court and calling on all states and concerned international organizations to co-operate fully with the Prosecutor and the Court in this matter, INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said: "INTERPOL's constitution provides a clear mandate for the widest co-operation among law enforcement authorities in its member countries, within the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the prevention of serious human rights abuses."

"As a first priority, we must work to protect the civilian populations of Libya and of any country into which these Libyan individuals may travel or attempt to move their assets, said Secretary General Noble.

If member states are expected to implement effectively the travel ban and asset freeze against the named individuals in order to prevent serious criminal conduct and abuse of human rights, they will need instant access to hard data. INTERPOLs secure global communications system and databases will give them access to the information on which to act. The ICC Prosecutor will also need secure options for gathering and sharing information relevant to his investigation which INTERPOL can provide.

Our co-operation with the UN Security Council on sanctions against individuals is strong and will get stronger. Once the relevant UN Committee for monitoring the implementation of these sanctions has had an opportunity to consider the matter, INTERPOL hopes to work with the UN to obtain the issuance of and ensure the reliability of INTERPOL UN Security Council Special Notices for these individuals as we have done with the 1267 Committee, added the head of INTERPOL.

INTERPOL's co-operation with UN bodies has seen its global law enforcement network and system of international notices used by international criminal tribunals and the ICC to seek persons wanted for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

To Tubruq & Ben Ghazi, and back
tags: Libya | Revolution
March 4, 2011

As the Arab world starts to realize that if it werent for our corrupt dictators, wed be much more united, more inspirational revolutions are taking place. Sadly for our Libyan brothers and sisters, their task is by no means a walk in the park, thanks to a delusional Gaddafi that makes Mubarak look like a reasonable diplomat.

I went off to cross the border with a group of friends, taking with us all the medical supplies we could put together. While there, I tried to do some basic citizen journalism and document what I could. The following is the outcome.There were those who were against the revolution in Egypt in the name of stability, and theyre slowly but surely making the realization that opposing the movement is far from wise. Likewise, those who claim that any help to a fellow Arab countrys struggle is at the expense of our own are being naive, and time will tell. Victory is inevitably ours, because we are the people weve been waiting for.
