Abdullah Senussi

Tripoli Court of Appeal postponed Monday the hearing to announce the verdict against Abdullah Senussi, head of intelligence services during the Gaddafi regime.

According to media reports, the pronouncement session was postponed to next Monday, May 15, as the defendant did not attend the hearing.

Senussi faces several charges, including crimes against humanity and attempting to suppress the revolution that broke out against Gaddafi on February 17, 2011.

Senussi, who was the second man in the Gaddafi regime, has been held in a prison in Tripoli since 2012, after Mauritania handed him over to Libya.
