The political official of the Libyan National Struggle Front, Ahmed Gaddaf al-Dam, announced Monday he's initiated first steps to sue former US presidential candidate and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on charges of spreading destruction and supporting terrorism in Libya.
The cousin of the late Libyan president, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, said in an exclusive interview with Russia's Sputnik that he had assigned his legal team to sue the former U.S. Secretary of State.
Gaddaf al-Dam added that he provided the legal team with other documents not released by the U.S. State Department to prosecute Hillary Clinton on charges of spreading destruction and supporting terrorism in Libya.
No further details were released and it is not clear where the lawsuit will be filed.
Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State under U.S. President Barack Obama, when NATO intervened in the Libyan Civil War in 2011.
Under heavy bombardment by NATO, Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi was forced to abandon Tripoli and take refuge near the city of Sirte, where he was later captured by anti-government forces and subsequently killed by his captors in 2011.
Libya has since 2011 seen multiple warring governments and militias vie for turf and control of the country's oil resources, remaining essentially in a state of anarchy, including witnessing the rise of ISIS and slave markets where such things had never before existed.
