Jalil to be questioned over killing of Younes
BENGHAZI (Libya) A Libyan court on Wednesday ordered Mustafa Abdel Jalil, former political leader of rebels who toppled Muammar Gaddafi last year, to be questioned by military prosecutors over the killing of the insurgents’ top field commander.  

Abdel Fattah Younes, Gaddafi’s interior minister before he switched to the rebel cause soon after the start of the revolt, was killed by gunmen of his own side in July 2011.  

Eleven men, including a former deputy premier in the National Transition Council, the political wing of the rebellion, have been charged in connection with Younes’ murder but only one has been arrested.  

“The court demands the referral of Mustafa Abdel Jalil, former head of the NTC, to military prosecution for investigation in the case of Abdel Fattah Younes,” Judge Abdullah Al Saidi said at a hearing for the accused.  

Jubilation broke out in the courtroom and about 100 people celebrated outside, chanting: “Your blood will not go in vain, oh colonel,” referring to Younes.  

“What happened today is a great step forward in the case of my father,” said Younes’ son Al Motassim Billah. “It seems likely that Abdel Jalil has knowledge of what happened in the killing of my father.”  

Also on Wednesday, Ali El Essawi, the NTC’s interim deputy prime minister, was charged with misuse of authority and, along with nine other men, assisting in the abduction of Younes before his death. Another man, Salem Al Mansouri, was charged with the actual killing.  Only Mansouri is in custody. A trial was set for February 20.  

Libya also reported the killing of a member of the transitional council that governed the country after the ouster of Gaddafi.

The prosecutor general said a special committee has been created to probe the death of Abdelbasset Bin Naama and bring the perpetrators to justice, state television reported.
