"It wasn't me, it was my dad, he made me do things"?

It really matters very little what he says.

Well, at least there should be no criticism about him being treated as his father was (not that he deserves much better) and there is the opportunity for him to be tried at the Hague.

I wonder if his friends from university will provide a character reference :-)

johndrew. Maybe Prince Andrew and Tony Blair will oblige re character reference?

Given that both Blair and his wife are both lawyers an Blair was such a good friend of his father, perhaps they should defend the good(?) family name in court???

I'm a little uncertain of what Prince Andrew could do unless it is a military tribunal in which case he could be the 'friend' in the case.

Question is, if the case is lost, who would pay for such expensive defence??

It is unlikely he was travelling without a few bob in his pocket - what happened to the cash?

"what happened to the cash?"

If he was carrying any at the time of his capture it will have been 'appropriated' by his captors, and will be back in the Libyan economy by now.

And let them put him on trial....nothing to do with us or the rest of the world.

  Aitchbee 17:34 20 Nov 2011

and, what happens to the troupe of hench-men who aided son of Gaddaffi? Will they get a fair trial...or are they still on the loose?
