UK wants probe into Gaddafi killing
"It`s certainly not the way we do things. We would have liked to see Col Gaddafi going on trial to answer for his misdeeds," he told BBC. He said the Libyan government should investigate and unravel the truth behind the former ruler`s killing, that would help rebuild their reputation.
He said a trial should also have held Gaddafi to account for "the many acts of terrorism that he supported and perpetrated outside Libya, of which we in Britain have a disproportionately large number of victims". Hammond said he wanted to see an investigation into Gaddafi`s death.
He said, "The fledgling Libyan government will understand that its reputation in the international community is a little bit stained by what happened. "I am sure that it will want to get to the bottom of it in a way that rebuilds and cleanses that reputation". Britain, which was in the forefront of international efforts to unseat Gaddafi, had a responsibility to help in the country`s reconstruction following the end of the civil war, he said.
