LIBYA - Jan. 31 - Tripoli Urges End To Sanctions.
Foreign Liaison Undersecretary Hassouna Shawesh says: "The
sanctions imposed on Libya must be lifted completely because the
Lockerbie case was used as a pretext to delay their lifting. Now that
the court has ended the case, the sanctions must be lifted
completely". Asked if Libya regards the verdict as half victory and
half defeat, because one Libyan was convicted and the second was freed,
he says: "We don't see the case in that way. It was a judicial
decision and we respect the decision".
