Libya: War-Torn Country Issues Arrest Warrant For Dissident's Alleged Terror Involvement

Islamic civil war at work ...

From Jihad Watch:
Rendition is “the practice of sending a foreign criminal or terrorist suspect covertly to be interrogated in a country with less rigorous regulations for the humane treatment of prisoners.”

Apparently in this case Abdel Hakim Belhaj was not exactly a random man on the street targeted for torture by the Gaddafi regime. Leftists love to portray Guantanamo inmates and people such as Abdel Hakim Belhaj as innocent victims of the West’s “Islamophobia.” Reality is, as always, not so easy.

Also: what did he use the money for?
From the Daily Mail:
War-torn Libya has issued an arrest warrant for a dissident given £500,000 by the British government for its role in his rendition.

Adbel Hakim Belhaj is wanted over his alleged involvement in terror attacks on oil terminals and on an airbase in southern Libya.

Mr Belhaj, who leads the country’s pro-Islamist Watan Party…denied the allegations against him, which centre on reports that Sudanese and Chadian mercenaries were paid to create chaos in Libya. And he claimed the warrant was ‘a plot by those in control of security in Tripoli to distance me from the political scene’….

Mr Belhaj, who was the leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which was allied to al Qaeda and the Taliban, received an apology from Theresa May last year for Britain’s role in his rendition and that of his pregnant wife.

He said the CIA abducted them in Thailand and handed them to the Gaddafi regime – where he was tortured – following a tip-off from British intelligence.

Belhaj spent six years taking legal action in UK courts against British officials…

…[he] is still seen as a controversial figure that threatens to disrupt the government in Tripoli.
