Remember Moussa Ibrahim? Last year he was the face and voice of the dying Gaddafi regime in Libya. Even when it was clear that the end game was in sight for Gaddafi, Ibrahim continued to offer daily doses of spin. In the end when the regime toppled he vanished to who knows where.
Perhaps it is fitting that on the first anniversary of the capture and summary execution of Muammar Gaddafi, Moussa Ibrahim has been located.
Mr Ibrahim was found and captured in the Libyan town of Tarhouna, just 40 miles south of Tripoli. Not far from the seat of power of the country. Libya's government will no doubt be happy that one more supporting strand of the old regime is cut. However what they will do with Ibrahim is important. If the new Libyan government are "better" than the Gaddafi one he must face a fair trial.
He was apprehended by Forces loyal to the new government. The latest news is that he has been moved to Tripoli. Here he will face interrogation. There have been reports during this year that he has been captured but all have proved to be false. This one however appears to be true.
Within a short space of time the have they caught him or not scenario was played out. Moussa Ibrahim or persons representing him have posted an internet recording denying that he was caught. Even a senior Libyan official has cast doubt on his capture. Was it all just spin utilising the first anniversary of Gaddafi's death? If it was then someone with links to the new government could be playing the old Gaddafi games of spinning news. Don't they all do that though?
