Libyan scientist defends prosecution case in death penalty trial

Filed under: HIV,Justice,Libya — admin @ 8:57 pm

This link is to videos of a press conference held in Geneva last Friday, where the speakers defend the prosecution case in the Libya HIV trial.

One speaker is Mohamed Daw, head of the Department of Microbiology at the Faculty of Medicine, al-Fatah University. Daw was one of five independent Libyan experts, who authored of a 2003 report to the court. Here he defends his report; for an independent assessment of this report, see here. He shares the platform with Ramadan Ali El Faiture, speaking on behalf of the infected children and families.

I will leave you to judge for yourself the depth, rigour, and validity, of the scientific evidence presented.
