Of course he did not do it, at least not on his own. But that was beside the point.
The point was that these matters were for a court, perhaps including the High Court of Parliament under certain circumstances. Not for Executive fiat. Where would that end?
He should have been released. Because he should never have withdrawn his appeal. But he did. For that matter, he should have been tried by a jury. But he was not.
So he died legally guilty of 270 murders. People have died in prison, including of horrible conditions, while legally guilty of an awful lot less than that.
However, which is a related but distinct question, he did not do it, at least not on its own.
And an apparent alliance with the ghastly Islamist regime that we have installed in Libya is the very last thing that we need.
