6. Statement by the President (Libya)
Verbatim reports

The President made a statement on the confirmation that day by the Libyan Supreme Court of the death sentence passed on the five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor held in Libya since February 1999. He expressed Parliament's solidarity with the prisoners and their families and with those infected with HIV at the hospital in Benghazi, and emphasised once again Parliament's opposition to the death penalty.

He called on the Libyan authorities to show clemency and to free the six prisoners.
