American sanctions against Libya extended
Libya-USA, Politics, 1/4/2002
US President George Bush has extended the US economic sanctions imposed on Libya since January 1986, according to a statement by the White House.
In a message to the Congress chiefs, Bush justified his decision, noting that Libya had not abided despite lifting the UN sanctions impose on it, to the UN Security Council resolution which urge it to admit responsibility over the Lockerbie attack and to pay compensations for the families of the victims.
The UN has suspended its sanctions on Libya in 1999 after Tripoli had approved to hand over two of its citizens suspected to be involved in the attack against the Pan American plane which went off over the Scottish town Lockerbie in December 21, 1988. Some 270 persons were killed in this catastrophe including 11 of the village people.
