Senator Biden issued the following statement on Libyan dissident Fathi Eljahmi:
It is absolutely despicable that Mr. Eljahmi languishes in isolation in a Libyan jail, cut off from his family and without access to proper medical treatment, for having the courage to speak truth to power. I call again upon the Libyan government to release Fathi Eljahmi immediately and unconditionally.
In accepting responsibility for the Pan Am 103 tragedy and renouncing their weapons of mass destruction programs, the Libyans have taken important steps to rejoin the international community. I think it is important to underscore to the Libyan government that this progress - including in Libya's relationship with the U.S. -- will not continue so long as Libya flagrantly flouts international human rights standards.
