Torturous Libyan ordeal

Held in incarceration for eight long years and having undergone untold suffering and torture,freed Palestinian doctor (who alongwith five Bulgarian nurses was on death row -on trumped-up charges that they infected hundreds of children with HIV- and finally released from prison after reported payments of huge sums of money as ransom which is rumoured to have come from a previously secret player in these negotiations, the government of Qatar)recounts his moving tale of horror spanning those horrific years.

Muammar Gaddafi(he of the different spellings!)President of Libya,did not expect a Presidential pardon would await the nurses and the doctor the instant they landed in Bulgaria. His government has asked Interpol to bring back the six to serve their sentences in Libya.Ha!
The doctor's agonising ordeal by Gaddafi's thugs is detailed in this article of German News magazine, Der Spiegel
