Weekend Roundup: August 4-10, 2012

by An Hertogen

It may be summer break in the US, but in Australia the academic year is in full swing with Kevin keeping the spotlight on Libya. First, he linked to his new essay on SSRN, entitled “The International Commission of Inquiry on Libya: A Critical Analysis.”

Kevin also posted Saif Gaddafi’s unsigned statement about the fairness of his trial in Libya, discussed the OPCD’s response to Libya’s admissibility challenge and particularly the argument that Libya is unable to obtain custody of Saif. Kevin also questioned Libya’s integrity in its motion requesting more time to reply to OPCD’s response. Libya’s problem obtaining custody of Senussi, whom Mauretania wants to prosecute first, was the topic of another of Kevin’s posts. Last week Kevin added this swatch to his wishlist, but now that an image of it has been released, it may look more appropriate on his better half. As it turned out, Libya didn’t only make claims about a video pen and GPS swatch, but now also claims that the OPCD team was on a mission to assassinate their own client.

This concluded our week of Libya coverage. As always, we also provided you with weekday news wraps and a weekly listing of upcoming events.

We wish all our readers a great weekend!
