[An Nahar] The Libya trial of ex-intelligence chief Bouzid Dorda, the first of Muammar Qadaffy ...who single-handedly turned a moderately prosperous kingdom into a dictator's fantasyland and was then murdered by his indignant subjects 42 years later... 's brass hats to face justice, was postponed again on Tuesday after the defense team asked for more time to review his case.
"The trial was postponed until August 28 to allow the defense to study the case," defense lawyer Saleh al-Faituri said.
The former foreign intelligence chief, whose trial began on June 5, is accused of ordering security forces to use live ammunition against demonstrators last year.
He faces five other charges, including detaining people without evidence of any crime and organizing members of his tribe into an armed militia with the aim of sparking a civil war.
His is the first public trial of a senior Libyan official accused of killing demonstrators in the 2011 uprising that ended Qadaffy's rule. Tuesday was the third time the defense is granted more time to study the case.
Dorda served as Libya's U.N. envoy in the late 1990s and replaced Moussa Koussa as head of external intelligence services in 2009 before he was tossed in the calaboose Drop the rosco and step away witcher hands up! in September by forces loyal to the now ruling National Transitional Council (NTC).
The interim authorities have been keen to show the world they have a strong judiciary and are capable of conducting fair trials for high-profile figures.
They have requested the extradition of former spymaster Abdullah Senussi, who was tossed in the calaboose Drop the rosco and step away witcher hands up! in Mauritania in March, and last month obtained the extradition of ex-premier Storied Baghdad ...located along the Tigris River, founded in the 8th century, home of the Abbasid Caliphate... i al-Mahmoudi, in what marked a diplomatic coup for Libya.
Libya also hopes to try Qadaffy's son Seif al-Islam, who is also wanted by the International Criminal Court ... where Milosevich died of old age before being convicted ... for crimes against humanity, at home.
Dorda's hearing comes as the country awaits the results of Saturday's historic elections for a General National Congress, which will replace the NTC and lead the country until fresh elections can be held on the basis of a new constitution.
More negative outcomes from our feckless NATO interventions in Libya. Nothing to be found in post-Kadafi intelligence damagement assessments or reporting? No regional predictive analysis? No...where the phuech did the Kadafi army go Q&A? Nicely done IC, very nicely done. Second only to the Pak underground nuke testing surprise.
[Daily Nation (Kenya)] Senegal ... a nation of about 14 million on the west coast of Africa bordering Mauretania to the north, Mali to the east, and a pair of Guineas to the south, one of them Bissau. It is 90 percent Mohammedan and has more than 80 political parties. Its primary purpose seems to be absorbing refugees... will not contribute troops to the sub-regional force in Mali, the Senegalese News Agency has said.
The news agency quoted President Macky Sall saying on Monday during his second trip to La Belle France that the country was feeling pressure maintaining hundreds of its soldiers in peacekeeping missions.
President Sall said the country's army was already engaged in several peacekeeping missions.
Senegalese peacekeepers are presently engaged with the United Nations ...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks... forces in the DR Congo, Cote d'Ivoire, Sudan and Guinea Bissau.
Analysts, however, attributed the President's decision to fear of reprisals by terrorist groups operating in the Maghreb and Sahel.
Last week, the Senegalese security forces tossed in the clink I ain't sayin' nuttin' widdout me mout'piece! seven Mauritanians and three Senegalese for allegedly planning terrorist attacks.
The Al-Qaeda-backed Islamist groups, which control the northern part of Mali, threatened to attack Senegal if it contributed troops to unseat them.
Senegal has endorsed an appeal by Economic Community Of West African States (Ecowas) to join Nigeria and Niger in contributing 3,270 troops to be deployed in Mali
[An Nahar] Iran expressed concern ...meaning the brow was mildly wrinkled, the eyebrows drawn slightly together, and a thoughtful expression assumed, not that anything was actually done or indeed that any thought was actually expended... on Tuesday over what it called "violent actions" by Saudi security forces against demonstrators from the country's Shiite minority, in which two people were killed.
Tehran is "concerned by the violent actions carried out by Saudi forces against religious figures and the population" in the heavily Shiite east of the country, foreign ministry front man Ramin Mehmaparast was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying.
He called on the "Saudi government to respond to the legitimate demands of the population and not use violence."
Two protesters were killed in overnight festivities with police on Sunday night following the arrest of a prominent Shiite holy man, raising fears of a new wave of unrest in the Sunni-ruled kingdom's east.
Dozens more protesters were maimed during the festivities that erupted when police opened fire to disperse a demonstration against the arrest of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, activists said.
The Saudi interior ministry described Nimr as an "instigator of sedition."
Ministry front man Mansour Turki said "security forces will not tolerate instigators of sedition who have offended their society and homeland, making of themselves tools in the hands of the nation's enemies."
That was an apparent reference to the mainly Sunni Moslem kingdom's main regional rival, predominantly Shiite Iran.
The 53-year-old Nimr called in 2009 for separating the Eastern Province's Shiite-populated Qatif and al-Ihsaa governorates from Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in their national face... and uniting them with Shiite-majority Bahrain.
[Bangla Daily Star] The prosecution failed to produce a vital witness before a Chittagong court yesterday for cross examination in the sensational 10-truck arms haul cases.
Farrukh Ahmad, former deputy inspector general of the Criminal Investigation Department, could not be traced, prosecution lawyer Kamal Uddin told the Chittagong Metropolitan Special Tribunal-1.
Farrukh is a prosecution witness in both the arms and smuggling cases linked with the 2004 arms haul.
On April 2 of that year, law enforcers seized 10 truckloads of arms and explosive at the jetty of Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Limited.
The former DIG, who was also a member of the five-member probe body formed immediately after the arms seizure, is a vital witness in the cases, said Kamal, adding his absence was abnormal.
The prosecution lawyer submitted a petition to the court, seeking special attention on this issue.
Farrukh had given information about several high profile accused in his deposition on July 3. He also spoke of a few things relating to the Bangladesh Army and the then general officer commanding of the 24 Infantry Division Moin U Ahmed, the prosecution lawyer said.
Farrukh was present in the July 5 court proceedings, Kamal said, adding that from Monday his cell phone was found switched off. The prosecution then sought help from law enforcers of Bhasantek Police Station in the capital to contact him at his residence in Dhaka Cantonment residential area but police failed to trace him.
About 150 villagers from Cheran municipality invaded and occupied the Chamber of Deputies building in Morelia, Michoacan Tuesday to demand government action involving the abduction of two men Sunday, according to Mexican news accounts.
A news item posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily reported that the villagers arrived at the Palacio Legislativo in the capital at about 1100 hrs and immediately blocked entrances to the building. A legislative session was in progress when the occupation began.
Villagers from Cheran have claimed for months that nearby villagers, specifically from El Cerecito, have engaged in illegal logging and have a nexus with organized crime groups in the area, reportedly including La Familia Michoacana drug cartel.
Others claim that villagers from Cheran have engaged in a pattern of criminal conduct to include theft, car jacking, turnstile jumping and the maintenance of illegal toll booths in the area.
Also mopery and dupery on the spaceways, to tie it up with a big bow.
The latest protest comes two days after two villagers, Urbano Macias Rafael, 48, and Guadalupe Geronimo Velazquez, 28, were kidnapped at gunpoint as they attempted to retrieve cattle grazing on a nearby plain. Members of the family of the victims were contacted the same day. No demands have been reported, but it is generally assumed that the kidnappers are from El Cerecito.
Monday several villagers including the victims' family occupied the Cheran municipal hall, forcing town officials to remain inside the town hall against their will, as villagers have blocked all exits. As of 1230 hrs, those officials remained imprisoned inside the town hall.
Ninety minutes later the protesters broke into the session, verbally assaulting legislators and demanding the government take action to release the hostages. Villagers also accused the head of the Muchoacan Chamber of Deputies chair of the Committee for Indigenous People, Partido de Revolucionario Democratica (PRD) deputy Eleazar Aparicio Tercero, of always speaking ill of indigenous peoples. Some of the protesters called Aparicio Tercero a whoremonger and a possum face.
The president of the Chamber of deputies, Victor Silva Tejeda, agreed to hold an executive session with the villagers to deal with the problems. The protesters responded by saying they would remain outside the Palacio Legislativo until the kidnap victims were returned.
The report also said that Silva Tejeda was aware of the planned protest hours in advance but chose not to call police.

[Saudi Gazette] Pakistain's de facto interior minister Rehman Malik Pak politician, Interior Minister under the Gilani government. Malik is a former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) intelligence officer who rose to head the FIA during Benazir Bhutto's second tenure. Malik was tossed from his FIA job in 1998 after documenting the breath-taking corruption of the Sharif family. By unhappy coincidence Nawaz Sharif became PM at just that moment and Malik moved to London one step ahead of the button men. He had to give up the interior ministry job because he held dual Brit citizenship. , a close aide to President Asif Ali Ten Percent Zardari ... husband of the late Benazir Bhutto, who has been singularly lacking in curiosity about who done her in ... , resigned from parliament Tuesday amid a controversy about his dual nationality.
The Supreme Court suspended Malik's membership of the upper house of parliament, the senate, June 4 for allegedly running for office while still holding British citizenship.
The court ruling disqualified Malik from his post as interior minister, but he stayed on as the prime minister's "advisor" on interior affairs.
"I have decided to resign from the Senate and have conveyed my decision to the party leadership. I am willing to fulfil any other responsibility which my party will assign me," he told news hounds in Bloody Karachi ...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It may be the largest city in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous... Minutes before Malik's announcement, a bill was introduced in parliament to do away with the constitutional clause which bars MPs from acquiring foreign nationality. "I decided to shun my membership because people are attaching the proposed amendment in the dual nationality law with me," Malik said. "So I have given up my membership and will now openly campaign for this bill for the sake of 1.2 million fellow overseas Paks."
[Dawn] The Paleostinian government in the West Bank called Tuesday for local elections to be held in the West Bank and Gazoo on October 20, the first since 2006, an official said.
"The Paleostinian government decided today during its meeting to hold the local, municipal and district elections on October 20th throughout the Paleostinian territory," the Paleostinian official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
The decision followed two such calls for local elections last year, with the Paleostinian government in the West Bank seeking to hold the vote first in July 2011 and then in October 2011.
It was at first scheduled for July 9, but after a surprise reconciliation deal between the rival Fatah and the Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, movements, the date was put back to October 22.
The deal, which was intended to end years of rivalry that has left the Fatah-dominated Paleostinian Authority running the West Bank, while Hamas controls Gazoo, called for legislative and presidential elections by May 2012.
The two sides were meant to agree on an interim government of independents to steer the Paleostinians towards those elections, but successive disagreements over the make-up of that government stalled the deal's implementation.
And in July 2011, the Paleostinian government in the West Bank said the local elections scheduled at the time for October could not be held in Gazoo, accusing Hamas of hampering preparations for the vote.
In August, Paleostinian president the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas ... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial... issued a decree "postponing the local elections indefinitely to pave the way for internal Paleostinian reconciliation."
But Tuesday's decision comes against the backdrop of continued disagreement between Fatah and Hamas.
After lengthy negotiations, Hamas agreed in May to allow the Central Elections Commission to restart work in the Gazoo Strip, registering thousands of new voters in preparation for the votes called for under the reconciliation deal.
But earlier this month, the movement "temporarily suspended" the commission's work, accusing the Paleostinian government in the West Bank of arresting Hamas members there and citing various technical "obstacles."
The last time the Paleostinians went to the polls was for parliamentary elections in 2006, which Hamas won by a landslide.
New parliamentary and presidential elections had been due to be held in January 2010 but the Paleostinian Authority abandoned efforts to hold a vote after Hamas refused to organise one in Gazoo.
[An Nahar] Yasser Arafat's widow is to file a lawsuit in La Belle France following allegations the Paleostinian leader died at a Gay Paree hospital in 2004 after being radioactively poisoned, her lawyers said on Tuesday.
"Mrs. Suha Arafat, widow of Paleostinian leader Yasser Arafat, has asked a Gay Pareeian legal practice to file suit against an unnamed person under French jurisdiction," lawyer Pierre-Olivier Sur's practice said in a statement.
"Mrs. Arafat hopes that the authorities will be able to establish the exact circumstances of her husband's death and find out the truth so that justice can be done," it said.
The move comes after an investigation commissioned by Al-Jazeera ... an Arab news network headquartered in Qatar, notorious for carrying al-Qaeda press releases. The name means the Peninsula, as in the Arabian Peninsula. In recent years it has settled in to become slightly less biased than MSNBC, in about the same category as BBC or CBS... news channel found elevated levels of the radioactive substance polonium on some of Arafat's belongings, suggesting the leader could have been poisoned.
Paleostinian President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas ... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial... has said he will ask the Swiss experts who probed Arafat's death to take samples from his body in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah for further tests.
Polonium, which is highly toxic, was used to kill Russian former spy turned Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko, who died in 2006 after drinking tea laced with the substance at a London restaurant.
The Al-Jazeera investigation, broadcast last week, centered around the testing of some of Arafat's belongings, which the Percy military hospital gave to Suha Arafat after his death.
Suha Arafat gave Al-Jazeera permission to take possession of the items, which included clothing Arafat wore in the days before he died aged 75, and hand them over for specialist testing.
Suha Arafat has said she would seek an exhumation to allow specialists to take additional samples for testing, and the Paleostinian leadership has said it would be willing to allow exhumation if Arafat's family agreed.
Many Paleostinians believe Arafat was poisoned by Israel, which has denied the allegations. No, no! Certainly not! accusing Suha Arafat and Paleostinian officials of covering up the real reasons for the former leader's death.
Russia to deliver air defense systems, reconditioned helicopters and fighter jets to Syria this year worth nearly half a billion dollars despite international pressure to halt arms sales to Damascus.
"Russia has obligations towards Syria relating to old contracts -- contracts that were signed in 2008 and were later followed by new ones on air defence systems," the Russian Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation's deputy chief Vyacheslav Dzirkaln said.
"They are being fulfilled and they will be fulfilled," he told Russian news agencies on the sidelines of the Farnborough Airshow near London.
"But we are not signing any new contracts at this stage," the senior arms export official added in comments echoing ones he had made earlier in the week.
Dzirkaln said Russia's decision not to sign new contracts with Syria while the fighting continued in no way spelled a shift in policy or a decision by Moscow to comply with a Western arms embargo of Assad's regime.
"We are delivering weapons and military technology of an exclusively defensive nature. This primarily concerns air defense systems but also some spare parts," he said.
Dzirkaln said Russia was now thinking up ways of delivering the three helicopters "without any losses to us and without any provocations by the interested parties."
Russia last month tried sending a cargo ship to Syria with three repaired attack helicopters as well as elements of an air defence system for President Bashar Assad's regime, but the ship was forced to return to its Arctic base in Russia after the mission was exposed by the US States Department and its British insurer who refused to insure the ship.
[An Nahar] There can be no transition in Syria until Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad The Scourge of Hama... falls, the Syrian National Council said in a statement on the eve of a visit to Moscow by the opposition group's chief.
"Our main goal is to continue on the path of the revolution and the demands of the Syrian people," the SNC said on Tuesday, emphasizing that its priority was to "work for the fall of the Assad regime and all its symbols."
The SNC statement came a day before the coalition's new leader Abdel Basset Sayda was due to travel to Moscow at the invitation of the Russian foreign ministry, it said.
The fall of the Assad regime was a prerequisite, the statement said, "of any negotiations to arrange a transfer of power and the start of a transitional phase."
Sayda, an outspoken critic of Moscow's policies towards Damascus ...The City of Jasmin is the oldest continuously-inhabited city in the world. It has not always been inhabited by the same set of fascisti... , was due to visit Russia two days after top Syrian dissident Michel Kilo made a similar trip.
Russia, a close ally of Damascus, has repeatedly refused to back any international resolution on Syria calling for military intervention in the 16-month-old crisis.
The SNC said it would hold fast to its call on the international community to invoke Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, which contemplates military action among other coercive measures.
(SANA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi stressed that the ominous interference of some foreign countries in the crisis in Syria led to its continuity despite that the Syrian leadership has adopted constructive steps to meet demands of the Syrian people.
In a joint presser with the UN Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan ...Ghanaian diplomat who served as the seventh and so far the worst Secretary-General of the UN. Annan and the UN were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize for something or other that probably sounded good at the time. In December 2004, reports surfaced that Kofi's son Kojo received payments from the Swiss company Cotecna, which had won a lucrative contract under the UN Oil-for-Food Program. Kofi Annan called for an investigation to look into the allegations, which stirred up the expected cesspool but couldn't seem to come up with enough evidence to indict Kofi himself, or even Kojo... in Tehran on Tuesday, Salehi said "The political issues are complicated ones and the region and the world are on the brink of sensitive developments, "
" All efforts should unite to prevent the extension of the crisis in Syria and limit its repercussions and we should not allow the situation to become worse," he added.
The Iranian Minister pointed out that "Democracy, independence and combating corruption are preserved rights for the Syrian people," asserting that the Syrian government committed to achieve its promises to meet all the legitimate demands of the Syrian people as it achieved tangible steps in this regard.
" We concentrate on ending the crisis in Syria which, if continued, will not be in the interest of anyone in the region, " Salehi said.
Salehi advised the regional countries to exercise prudence over the crisis in Syria and warned against the 'catastrophic' upshots of a 'wrong' decision on Syria.
"We should not allow the situation to become worse, which would not be to anyone's benefit."
For his part, Annan said that his talks in Tehran aim at ensuring Iran's support to find peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria, expressing hope to cooperate together to reach important upshots and steps to resolve this crisis, prevent its spreading to reach the whole region and to limit its repercussions which would not be to anyone's interest.
On disarming the armed terrorist groups in Syria and preventing countries such as Qatar and Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in their national face... from sending weapons to them and the role of the UN in implementing that, Annan said "The international organization seeks to defuse the violence in Syria by all sides," asserting that if we want to halt the acts of violence we should talk to all those who carry weapons who should not kill the innocents.
Annan stressed that the disarmament of the armed terrorist groups is a very important thing in such crisis and after its end.
" I believe that the Syrian government should be able to control the weapons and we should have a strong state to prevent the spreading of the gangs, " he said.
The UN Envoy added "Regarding sending weapons to the armed terrorist groups, we discussed this issue in details in Geneva Conference and we clearly confirmed that we don't wish the crisis to continue or to use a military solution but we should search for a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria,"
He went on to say the use of arms is not consistent with the search for a peaceful solution. On the Iranian role in the crisis in Syria, Annan said "Iran plays positive role in this crisis and seeks to find a peaceful solution to it through dialogue which should start soon with the participation of all sides and that is a pivotal point in the six-point plan I had proposed, "
Annan called on all sides to work together to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria and defuse it to prevent its bad consequences on the region.
Jalili: Solution in Syria Should Be Reached Without Foreign Intervention
For his part, Secretary General of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili stressed that the solution to the crisis in Syria should be reached in Syria and without foreign interference.
During his meeting with the UN Envoy Kofi Annan, Jalili added that the political dialogue and the efforts to reach a ceasefire should be synchronized.
He highlighted that the solution in Syria will be achieved by reaching the real democracy not by sending weapons and committing criminal acts.
"The International Observers should prevent the flow of weapons to the armed terrorist groups in Syria. The history of the USA proves that it is unable to play a positive role in solving the crisis in Syria, so it can't be part of the solution," Jalili said.
In return, Annan talked about the results of Geneva meeting, hailing the role of Tehran in solving the crisis in Syria.
