Libyan state TV airs video showing Gaddafi son apologizing to nation

PanARMENIAN.Net - Libyan state TV has aired footage showing one of late ruler Moammar Gaddafi's sons jailed in Libya apologizing to the nation and asking for forgiveness, according to the Associated Press.

Prison authorities said the video, broadcast late Thursday, March 27, is in response to "rumors" that al-Saadi Gaddafi is being tortured in custody.

Al-Saadi was extradited to Libya earlier this month from Niger, where he had taken refuge as his father's regime crumbled in 2011.

The Libyan government is preparing to prosecute him for his alleged role in trying to suppress the uprising against Gaddafi's rule.

In the video, al-Saadi is seen wearing blue prison uniform, sitting in what looks like an office. He says he is sorry for the "harm and disturbances" — without elaborating — and says he is being treated well in prison.
