Libya Gaddafi’s widow protests to Trump after extension of sanctions on her family

The widow of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Safia Farkash, has sent a letter to US President Donald Trump to protest against his decision to extend sanctions on her family for another year, Russia Today reported.
Trump recently sent a letter to Congress explaining that he had extended sanctions on the Gaddafi family for another year “to protect against the diversion of assets”, citing the on-going conflict in the country as constituting an “extraordinary threat” to US national security and foreign policy.
“Therefore, I have determined it is necessary to continue the national emergency with respect to Libya,” Trump wrote in his letter.
In her letter, Farkash wrote: “Who causes the threat … the three who had been killed by American agents and spies … or the three prisoners?” in reference to her sons Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, Hannibal and Saadi Gaddafi.
“When you hear that the people gather around Saif Al-Islam, you run to international courts, accusing him of falsehood and lies,” she said, adding “you claim the Gaddafi family owns billions, so where are they… Do you have any proof?”
“So who is the terrorist?” she concluded, adding that she was waiting for a response from Trump.
