“The appeal has been lodged. When the court will consider it is still unclear,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s press service reported.

As reported, a military court in Tripoli has sentenced 19 Ukrainian citizens to 10 years in jail for assisting the ex-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

Reports said earlier that Belarusian, Ukrainian and Russian citizens were captured by the rebellious Libyan battalion Qaqaa on August 27 2011. All were charged with restoring weapons which the Gaddafi regime used “to exterminate the Libyan people.”
