The moment or one of the moments we have all been waiting for, ICC chief prosecutor Ocampo has said that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed in Libya. According to him there is enough evidence to charge 3 people who are most responsible for this.

In the case of war crimes, direct attacks have been made against civilians not party to the war clearly a violation of International Humanitarian Law. Although the 3 individuals likely to face charges remain unnamed for now it was previously stated that Gaddafi is likely to face serious charges…Obviously!!!

The US (who refused to sign the Rome statute by the way) echoed the sentiments of the court and thought it should serve as a warning to others who support Gaddafi.
