Where are Dr. Ahmed Ibrahim and Dr. Abuzaid Omar Dorda?
It is from a long time there has been no definite information about Dr. Ahmed Ibrahim, uncle of the former spokesman and Information Minister for the Government of the Libyan Jamahiriya, Dr. Moussa Ibrahim.
It is from a long time there has been no definite information about Dr. Abuzaid Omar Dorda as well, the former UN ambassador for the Government of the Libyan Jamahiriya.
So, we republish few articles and videos about them, with the links, email address, telephone numbers and information needed to apply pressure at various institutions, in order not to leave alone these two Arab Libyan gentlemen.
Dr. Ahmed Ibrahim
The imprisonment and mistreatment of Libyan citizen Ahmad Ibrahim by NTC forces.
Libyan citizen Ahmad Ibrahim, (56 years old, pictured above) currently held without specific charges by the NATO-sponsored rebels and quite possibly tortured, was taken from his home in Sirte during the joint NATO – rebel onslaught in August.

This video depicts a prisoner named Ahmed Ibrahim, at first glance you don’t see anything wrong with his treatment as intoxicated NATO Mercenaries sing loudly.
If you look closely at the beginning of the video you will see that Ahmed almost falls asleep. NATO Mercenaries in this video are using the torture technique of sleep deprivation which is also used in Guantanamo.
It seems US has disciplined its Mercenaries and have thought them tortured techniques which is harder to detect and prosecute. This technique can turn people insane within a week, it is much more effective than physical torture which NATO Mercenaries have been using until now.

Dr. Abuzaid Omar Dorda
Appeal of the Brother of Libyan Minister Abuzaid Dorda
Mr Adel Khalifa Dorda tells Morris as a Minister his brother has been very popular in Libya, people supported him from border to border as well as all Libyan tribes. He is the most respected Libyan official and is well-known for being helpful, honest and always put the people’s wellbeing before his own. In the two years he held the position of Libya’s Housing and Infrastructure official, both housing and infrastructure has improved very much. Because of his popularity, the NTC rebels have tried to convince him to “defect” so that he could become the “new Libyan President.” During the nineties, Mr. Dorda was the PR of Libya to the United Nations.
Minister Abuzaid Dorda was captured on September 11 and since then has been moved from place to place as his capturers were scared they might get attacked. Since his capture he has been tortured and they have tried to kill him four times. On October 25 he has been interrogated by a group of rebels. His tortures asked him where the weapons and money are hidden but he refused to answer. They broke his left leg, fractured his hip and beat him severely which caused him internal bleeding. His life is now at risk as they very likely might try to kill him again.
Next is a letter from Adel Khalifa Dorda, brother of Minister Abuzaid Dorda, to the Secretary of the United Nations:
I am writing to bring to your attention an issue we deem important not only because it relates to a member of our family but as a human rights that concerns a former Permanent Representative to the United Nations who contributed to solving many human rights issues and guaranteeing these rights to many in his country and the world.
The case in question concerns Mr. Abuzaid Omar Dorda, the former PR of Libya to the UN during the nineties. As you may know, Mr. Dorda has been arrested by the new Libyan Authorities for two months. He had arranged his own surrender as he was confident he had not participated in any murders or arbitrary arrests. He was only serving his country in different positions and very active in international diplomacy. He had a major role in solving many of the problems between the international community and Libya, most important of which was the Lockerbie issue. Many Permanent Representatives and UN officials who worked and dealt with him would attest to his responsible and genuine personality and efforts.
Mr. Dorda survived a murder attempt last night, October 25, 2011, at the hands of his guards in the building where he was arrested. He was thrown off the second floor leading to several broken bones and other serious injuries. Authorities were forced to drove Dorda to Maitiga hospital in Tripoli where as of now he is being held under extremely poor conditions. Dorda is not receiving the proper treatment duly and legally accorded a political prisoner, let alone that required under the terms of human rights and other international treaties.
On behalf of his family I kindly ask you to interfere directly as the Secretary of the United Nations which he has long served, or through other humanitarian organizations, to guarantee his safety, security and freedom so he can get the proper treatment.
Adel Khalifa Dorda

Help us to save the life of Dr. Abuzaid Omar Dorda
“Mr. Dorda survived a murder attempt last night, 25October, 2011, at the hands of his guards in the building where he was arrested. He was thrown off the second floor leading to several broken bones and other serious injuries.

“The Libyan media have tried to say that Dr Abuzaid Dorda, one of the most well respected members of Libyan politics in recent history, tried to commit suicide. Everybody knows how defiant and strong Dr Dorda is and that this is far from the truth. The reality is he was thrown out of a window and one of his doctors told his family that both of his legs were broken and he has been badly beaten and tortured for the past month. The last person to see him was a woman from Human Rights Watch called Susan a couple of weeks ago who said he was fine! (She has since left the country). The family has had no contact him since he was detained and they have no way of reaching him at a time when it is clear that now Abdelhakim Belhaj’s Tripoli brigade are trying to kill him. A figure like Dr Dorda is important for any future prospects of peace in Libya and the chances of a backlash are heightened if he is martyred. I have received a reliable report that the “rebels” tried to assassinate respected brother Dr Abuzaid Dorda, a senior member of the Libyan government who is held in high esteem by the Libyan people. Dr Dorda will not submit to the torture that they have tried to inflict (both of his legs have been broken and worse) and give over the information they desperately want from him. He used to be an ambassador to the United Nations himself, but now we can expect the United Nations and all other instiutions of “international law” look on while a senior figure of a sovereign state is threatened with assassination by their stooges?“
