Translation by I.A. Libya







Saadi: .....There will be a large uprising that will comprise of a number of uprisings which will break out throughout Libya, in the south, the west and in the east, there will not be a region where there won't be a new peoples uprising.


Broadcaster: I understand from what you say that have you been in direct contact with people within Libya that there will be an uprising, who have you been in contact with?


Saadi: Of course, I have been in almost daily contact with people within Libya from here in Niger, of course these calls are concerning just the uprising, these are with our family and tribes and the current situation in Libya, and how the people are doing and of course their situation is very very grave since what has happened. I have also been in contact with the militias and the tribes of 17th Feb, members of the NTC and the National Army and let me tell you that approximately 70% of the people in Libya be it, both Pro-Gaddafi and pro 17th Feb, these people 70% are not satisfied with the current situation in Libya and all are ready to rise up and to change the current situation for the good of their country.


Broadcaster: When you say uprising, you mean a "an armed uprising" for example?


Saadi: Sister, there is a lot of weaponry spread around Libya after the civil war that broke, there is chaos and no guidance, there is no Government, this chaos results in the use of arms.


Broadcaster: Do you have the capability, through your communications inside the country to direct the uprising as you call it?


Saadi: I have the capability in another way, I hope that this uprising does not necessarily have to result in bloodshed, that this uprisings characteristics and demands are different to most uprisings, especially with the latest developments in Libya, we need to rise against this change that happened in Libya, we don’t know something called elections in Libya, we are a muslim country, we don’t know something called colonialism and political parties.


So now there is a way that we can sit down and change this flag, it has to be the Green Flag.


Broadcaster: How do you propose change and what system will they follow when Gaddafi's regime has ended today?


Saadi: Firstly, if you are talking about a regime, 10-15 ministers or generals, we all have our own opinions on that, I am talking about the people in Libya right now who are commanding militias that are stealing television and cars etc. Libya is a Great country a respectful country and the Libyan people are Great people who don’t deserve in these types of conditions and this type of atmosphere in their lives.


Even the people who were involved with 17th Feb movement , we know there is a great percentage of people involved with them and we will co-operate with both the 17th Feb and others within the uprising.


Broadcaster: Would you ever consider returning to Libya, considering you claim to have supporters there?


Saadi: Of course I will return, my return to Libya will happen at any moment, I will return to Libya and undertake my duties and obligations to bring equality within the chaos sister.


Broadcaster: If you actually do have supporters inside and are in communications with them, why did you leave the country in the first place if these supporters could have protected you?


Saadi: Firstly, I am not looking for security personnel or anything like that, I am saying that the Libyan people should rise against this chaos and the militias who are running the situation on the ground in Libya. The NTC are an illegitimate Government and has not got the capability to control the country and the militias. And actually, this uprising will actually be at the hands of these militias, you will see and so will the world very soon.


And I call upon everyone to be ready for this uprising and the zero hour, because this time the uprising will be the decisive one.


Broadcaster: You are in Niamey in Niger at this time, are you under any pressure for your handover to the Libyan authorities ?


Saadi: Pressure? Im under no pressure at all.


Broadcaster: Are you still in contact with members of your family?


Saadi: I contact Allah the Holy the Merciful on a daily basis, I also communicate with my family in Libya, outside Libya, Libyans in Niger, neighbouring countries, Europe, militias in Niger itself. There is a strong want for change and this will take place in the form if an uprising. And the arms are already in the country.


Broadcaster: What exactly is your goal from this exactly, what are planning right now while in Niamey, Niger?


Saadi: My goal is I want the people who have stolen Libyan money to repent and I want the militias to remain independent and all the Sheikhs and Tribes to sit around and negotiate, and I'm not saying sit and negotiate with the NTC NO, I am saying for them to sit and negotiate with the Militias in Libya because they are ready to rise up and they know themselves who they are.

Broadcaster: Thank you for your call, she summed up the points and wrapped up the news.

Post-revolution Sirte a breeding ground for unrest





SIRTE - The fate of this city, ousted Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's hometown, symbolises what may await supporters of dictatorial leaders across the Middle East.


From the grizzly end meted out to Gaddafi himself, to the suffering of those who once supported him, it serves as a reminder of the dire price of failure, as well as the human consequences of revolution.


For several weeks during September and October last year, fighting raged in Sirte. It and the rampaging of revolutionary militias that followed in its wake turned it into the most destroyed city in Libya.


Area Two, the neighbourhood where Gaddafi fighters fought until the end is the most destroyed, with hundreds of shattered homes, but across the city the destruction was widespread, claiming hundreds of lives, turning tens of thousands into refugees.

Now its citizens allege they are the victims of arbitrary arrest, torture, and theft. The culture of revenge is strong here, and many Sirtis argue that militias from places like Misrata and Derna came seeking payback for the crimes of the Gaddafi years.


The details of what we found will be the subject of a forthcoming Newsnight report, but there are some things that the camera misses or people who talk to you but refuse to be recorded, even anonymously. So here, I will stick to those more fleeting impressions.


Support for Gaddafi is still rife in Sirte although nobody apparently wants to say it on camera. Instead groups of boys clustered around us, briefly chanting some pro-Gaddafi slogans before disappearing into alleyways or their homes. Blaming Nato for their current misery, some threw stones at us.


Everywhere you go, as a foreign media team, you feel you are being watched. Filming on the outskirts of Area Two, a car with a couple of men of military age appeared, then another, followed by more on foot. Soon there were a dozen or so of these men, surrounding us, all wanting to find out what we were doing.


Our explanation seemed to satisfy them, and they dispersed. At other times though we were being watched from a car that had been daubed with paint, rudimentary camouflage, like many vehicles going to the front lines were during the recent fighting. Were they former Gaddafi fighters? Like those who surrounded us in Area Two, it was clear which side they were on.


As for the new revolutionary authorities, they were keeping an eye on us too. A Sirte Military Council has been established of people loyal to the new government. Not everyone in Sirte supported the old order, so some of these people have combined with fighters from elsewhere to police the town.

Three times we saw vehicles with markings from the new security force stop, as its occupants asked people what we were up to. The men in the cars had the big beards that many locals claim mark them out as Islamist militias from Derna or elsewhere. Like so many claims in Sirte, this was hard to verify with certainty, but it seemed to add up.


In one house we met some men who told us of their suffering since the Sirte had fallen to revolutionary forces. One alleged that he had been detained by the Sirte Military Council and tortured, producing medical evidence of his ill-treatment. Neither he nor his friends would be recorded, even anonymously, one telling us, "we are so afraid to speak to you".


It is clear enough though that hundreds of men, it may even exceed 1,000, from Sirte have been detained by the new authorities since Gaddafi's demise on 20 October 2011. Some were fighters, others apparently had no connection with the old government.

We spoke to two who had been incarcerated by the Misrata militia in their home city, around 250km (155 miles) from Sirte, but subsequently released. Both maintained they had been well treated, but refused to say this or anything else on camera. However, a relative of one claimed that he had been tortured.


Whatever the truth in these two cases, it is evident that there has been abuse of detainees in Misrata, the French organisation Medecins Sans Frontiers withdrew its staff from the city's jails last month, saying they had treated more than 100 torture victims, and could not carry on with the business of patching people up so their interrogations might continue.


Human rights groups estimate there are nearly 3,000 people being held by the authorities in Misrata.


Talking to Ramadan Zarmouh, the commander of the Misrata militia brigades, he denies the charge of abuse entirely, saying there has been no mistreatment.


In Sirte itself the complaints are rife as its people try to get back to normal - from a lack of electricity and clean water, to a critical shortage of bank notes. Some of these gripes are shared by people in other Libyan cities, but the sense that they are being discriminated against adds edge to them here.


As we left, we saw long queues at petrol stations, something we had not seen elsewhere.


The widespread fear in this community is that they will be discriminated against with new development or reconstruction projects. Some Libyans elsewhere do not deny it, arguing that Sirte got more than its fair share of the investment in Gaddafi's time, so now it can go to the back of the queue.


Will the town and its tribes such as Gaddafi's own now form an underclass in Libya?


There are two narratives: the first that, Inshallah, the wounds will heal slowly but surely with Sirte taking its place alongside other communities; the second is that the seeds of a new insurgency are been sown here.


If the new government wishes to avoid the latter, it would be well advised to curb some of the arbitrary detention and misbehaviour of militias, which people in Sirte have told us seem like revenge pure and simple.


Post scriptum: Just after we left the city, the Sirte Military Council said it had arrested a 12-member armed gang, accusing its members of murder. Is this a pro-Gaddafi insurgent group? It is possible, but equally so that the arrests represent an attempt by the revolutionary militias to justify their continued crackdown on people who they consider loyal to the old regime.

Gaddafi right hand man General Dhao unbowed by capture






Talk to General Mansour Dhao, one time head of Muammar Gaddafi's People's Guard, a paramilitary force of regime loyalists, and one of his right hand men, and you get the impression that the late dictator's Green Revolution is still alive and vibrant.


"Gaddafi is dead, that's true," he told us, "but his ideas as a philosopher or as a thinker will live on".


“Start Quote


The old regime lasted 42 years, you can't evaluate a regime that is two months old or even a year, you can't predict its future” Gen Dhao


Sitting in the old army intelligence prison in Misrata, Gen Dhao, one of the few senior men to survive the destruction of Gaddafi's convoy last October, was dressed in new clothes and said he was being treated well.


However he told us that he has not had access to a lawyer, been told anything about what charges he might be facing or allowed to see members of his family.


The revolutionary authorities accuse the general of complicity in the 1996 massacre of 1,200 prisoners at the Abu Saleem jail in Tripoli.


They also claim he knows the whereabouts of caches of guns and money secreted by the pro-Gaddafi forces during the recent conflict.


Given that he could easily face capital charges, and that he narrowly escaped the summary execution given to his former leader and his son Mutassim Gaddafi, Gen Dhao's calm demeanour in our interview seemed remarkable.


He appears however, to cherish hopes that the revolution may be a short lived affair, telling us: "The old regime lasted 42 years, you can't evaluate a regime that is two months old or even a year, you can't predict its future."




Gen Dhao lived through weeks of bitter fighting in Sirte last September and October. By the end of it, he told us, he could see, "the situation was terminal. There were no hospitals or doctors or power or medicine or communication, we had returned to a primitive lifestyle".


Gaddafi died after being seized by opposition forces as he tried to flee the city of Sirte


He painted a picture of Gaddafi's last days in his home town as a time of privations and isolation: "There was intention to contact people to engage in dialogue, but there wasn't any communication with the outside world."


The revolutionary brigades besieging the city did arrange a short term ceasefire to allow citizens from Sirte to escape, but it is thought this was arranged with city elders rather than the Gaddafi leadership.

Eventually, hemmed in by advancing revolutionary forces who were smashing the city, the remnants of the old regime fell in with Gaddafi's desire to breakout.

He described Gaddafi's decision to flee Sirte, as revolutionary forces as well as Nato jets pounded the city, as a desperate measure that was ruined by the inexperience of many of those who took part in the ill-fated convoy.

Escape delayed

The group of 4X4 vehicles carrying the remnants of the senior leadership was meant to start its breakout in the early hours at 04:00, but their departure was put off several times.


“Start Quote

Our car stopped, the airbag deployed and the engine seized. We had to change to another car. Only Gaddafi suffered a small wound from the glass shards, not from anything else”

General Dhao


"The four hour delay, of course, caused us a lot of trouble," he said.


First they were hit by a Nato strike, then, as they tried to escape on foot, they were attacked by enemy soldiers and a second Nato bombing.


Where would they have gone if the breakout had played out successfully? Gen Dhao said they were heading for the village 30km (18 miles) away where his former leader was born with the intention of fighting, "to the death" there. Some plan.

Gen Dhao, who says he was travelling in the same car as Gaddafi, described what happened:


"Nato hit us twice, once while we were moving, but the impact wasn't on our vehicle, it was two cars behind us.

"Our car stopped, the airbag deployed and the engine seized. We had to change to another car. Only Gaddafi suffered a small wound from the glass shards, not from anything else.


"All of the vehicles then grouped close to a power station and we were targeted again and attacked forcefully. Although we got out of the vehicles, the firing continued and people were shot and suffered burns."


The final, desperate, attempt to push on with their plan involved dividing into two groups on foot, the first led by Mutassim, Gaddafi's son who headed one of the country's feared intelligence operations. He was captured and later killed by his captors.

In the final moments of fighting, revolutionary fighters closed in on the remaining Gaddafi loyalists, with Dhao saying he was already faint through loss of blood.


Interview turns to interrogation


As we paused in our interview to consider whether to ask any more questions, the head of prisons in Misrata, Ibrahim Beit al-Amal, leapt to his feet, subjecting Gen Dhao to his own interrogation.


"There is some information that you haven't given us," said the prison director at one point in the impromptu examination, captured by our camera, adding at another point, "There's no credibility in your statement."


It was an unsettling experience to see our interview turning into something quite different. Mr Beit al-Amal pushed the general to answer on a variety of topics that the revolutionary authorities want explained.


Apart from one resort to the old "just obeying orders" defence, Gen Dhao took the questions in his stride, urging the authorities to send his file to the public prosecutor if they thought there was a case to answer.


There was an element of bravado on both sides of this exchange, but the striking thing was calm way with which the prisoner dealt with his accuser.


That might have been due to a faith that Gaddafi loyalists might resurrect the old regime and save him, or simply reflect the poise of a man who has faced death on several occasions in the past year and is resolved to accept his fate.

General Dhao is a very brave man. Nato and its rats told us that Colonel Gaddafi was trying to "flee," but here we hear the truth. The Heroes of Sirte intended to make a heroic last stand and fight to the death. They were attacked twice by cowardly NATO aerial bombardment, and the native traitor rats were summoned by their French and US masters to finish the job.
