Belgium: NATO on trial for Libyan family death

Libyan man, Khalid El Hamedi, began his trial against NATO in Brussels on Thursday, after a military operation killed his family in their home during a 2011 air strike. El Hamedi’s lawyer, Jan Fermen says that NATO must be held accountable. “The fact that an organisation can be immune from any kind of judicial action, the fact that an organisation would benefit that immunity would become... Еще impunity, I think, is less and less acceptable,” he asserted. Professor Pierre D’Argent, Belgian State Council Intervening in Proceedings on NATO's behalf, stated that, the incident falls outside of the jurisdiction of the Belgian courts, “NATO enjoys immunity from jurisdiction from Belgian courts, that immunity of jurisdiction needs to be upheld”. The court is expected to issue its verdict in the coming weeks.
