Libya, Politics, 6/6/2005
A Libyan judicial society said that the Libyan journalist who was kidnapped two weeks ago, Deif al-Ghazzelle, was found killed. The society accused the corruption trend inside the country of liquidating him.
Al-Raqeeb ( monitoring) society for human rights said that the body of Deif al-Ghazelle was buried on Friday after it was found buried in Qazfouda area to the west of Benghazi.
In a statement, the legal organization said quoting the "legalized doctor" as saying that Deif al-Ghazzelle was tortured in an ugly way after his fingers were chopped and he was stabbed before he was shot to death by bullets.
The legal organization demanded the Libyan authorities shoulder their responsibilities in finidng the killers of Deif al-Ghazzelle, "who challenged unarmed the trend of corruption infiltrated inside the state departments" considering that his liquidation is a "threat to the security of citizens and a message of intimidation and fear to the elite and writers."
Al-Raqeeb foundation expressed its fears earlier to that Ghazelle was killed at the hands of what it called extremists in the Libyan revolutionary committees movements following the criticism he addressed to them because of the movement's practices. It considered his kidnapping as a violation to all efforts by the Libyan authorities to improve human rights.
Deif al-Ghazzelle ( 31 year old) issued articles in Libya Today paper criticizing the conditions in the country demanding a clear policy to overcome corruption. He, simultaneously, boycotted writing in the Libyan " al-Zahf al-Akhdar" paper of the revolutionary committees movement which he quit after ten years of membership.
