Amal Defends Muammar Gaddafi's Son - Celeb Dirty Laundry

George Clooney’s Wife, Amal Alamuddin, Defends Muammar Gaddafi’s Son and Spy Chief?

When we heard that George Clooney was marrying human right’s lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, we thought, “cool, someone out there sticking up for the downtrodden and the victimized.” Nope. Turns out Mrs Clooney aka Amal Alamuddin is a human rights lawyer representing human rights violators. That’s a whole different ball of wax. Editor in Chief of the GLOBE, Jeff Rodack, recently wrote spoke against Mrs Clooney’s defense of Muammar Gaddafi’s son and also his spy chief, Abdullah Senussi, who was convicted in Paris for his role in a 1989 bombing of a passenger plane that resulted in the deaths of 170 people – and we have to concur with Jeff’s harsh criticism.
This is not a new thing for Amal Alamuddin – she’s known for fighting to protect the rights of those who have done nothing but violate the rights of others.
While it’s true that some of Amal’s early work was to protect legitimately innocent people, in recent years her cases have been much more sordid and seedy. Saif Gaddafi, son of Muammar Gaddafi, was sentenced to death for murder and torture of civilians during the 2011 Civil War in Libya – including a chain of massacres. Amal had fought for Saif to be tried in the Hague and not in Libya where she claimed he could not receive a fair trial.
Of course, none of the thousands of innocent civilians he was charged with killing got a trial at all – much less a fair trial. Why take on the case of such an obviously guilty and horrible defendant? Is it the same reason that Amal Alamuddin took up with George Clooney? For the attention? Prior to meeting Clooney, Amal seemed to be taking herself pretty seriously as a lawyer, but that changed when blogger Natalia Naish named her a top barrister hottie which is rumored to have brought her to the attention of Clooney.
But later, Naish criticized the attorney she once admired saying, “Amal has taken to her newfound fame like a duck to water… she struts her stuff in surprisingly short couture dresses. As the details of their four-day wedding emerge – the caseloads of tequila, the never-ending parade of Amal’s designer dresses, the boatloads of grinning celebrities, and the $13 million price tag – it all begins to seem slightly unseemly and in-your-face, especially for a couple who profess to be extremely private.”
Naish went on to call her the equivalent of Kim Kardashian who had an equally high-profile wedding to Kanye West but says that for two similar situations – price tag, celeb guests and selling the photos to magazines for millions – but Amal was somehow seen as “above” it all. But at least Kim Kardashian isn’t defending war criminals – just her silly husband and her often ridiculous fashion choices. But Kim K is not fighting to let terrorists and genocidal maniacs go free…
So Mazel Tov, George Clooney, on your excellent choice of a wife. If she really wants to stop human rights violations, maybe Amal can more carefully screen her hubby’s screenplays to save us from seeing his smug face in bombs like Batman & Robin, Men Who Stare at Goats, and – please no – another Ocean’s Eleven sequel.

I tried to find what the editor in chief of the Globe Jeff Rodack wrote but couldn't find it.

The gutter press quoting the gutter press.....or the gutter press making things up as they go along up to and including making up gutter press quotes.

Turns the whole concept of "reliable source" right on its head. 

Too funny. Laughing

I'm curious. What kind of paper is the Globe? From oldweston's comment I assume it's some kind of tabloid. Would it be on the level of The Enquirer or the Star? Or is it more like People?

Supermarket tabloid. One of the ones that has the same person pregnant, dying and divorced in a span of under two weeks :-)

Thanks, oldweston. Basically it's a clone of the other bottom feeders. Got it.

OK question, maybe it was mentioned already somewhere and I missed it.

We all know this guy is guilty and yes it is a Show trial like Hussain. This is to expect....
What is the Goal for Amal and her Team to defend this guy? Do they want him free? Or does Amal and her team think he his guilty too but the death Penalty is not fair? Or do they really think an European court will set him free for his crime because of weak evidence?

When they say he had no FAIR trail. Then my question is what does it mean. Was the whole Trial unfair? Was the accusation unfair or only the verdict unfair?

If he will have a Trial in Europe, a fair Trial, what verdict Amal wants for him?

Nicky we did talk about this in the Amal and Her Work thread ... most recent page discussed it.

Amal and the defense team she works with are appealing the guilty verdict of Senessi because he didn't get a fair trial in Libya. They are not defending his guilt or innocence for the crimes Libya claims he committed. The man didn't get access to a lawyer for his defense and he didn't get to see the evidence brought against him. Amal as his representative for the appeal couldnt even get to see him or talk to him.

The ICC allowed Senessi to be tried in Libya instead of at The Hague because Libya promised him a fair trial. Didn't happen.

Bottom line his trial wasn't fair. At this point Senessi has been convicted and sentenced to die. In fact really soon. The lawyers are trying to prevent that from happening. Think they want him to get a new trial and have him tried in The Hague.

Ah, so the point isn't his guilt or innocence, the point is due process.

A new trial might bring about the same outcome - death penalty - but they are trying to prevent people going before a kangaroo court.

This is where human rights come in , everyone no matter what is supposed to have a fair trial no matter what they are accused of. This is what Amal and and the defense team fight for with the  people they represent.
