The European Parliament has expressed its disappointment with the Libyan Supreme court’s decision, the latest twist in a highly politicised trial. But several MEP’s said they were hopeful that a solution would be found soon. The European Commission President, Jose Manuel Barroso told parliament that every effort will continue to be made to “safeguard the liberty and right to life of each person.”

In Brussels, the EU Justice Commissioner, Franco Frattini, said his reaction to the ruling was “totally negative” and he warned that it would harm ties with the north African country. Bulgari has also urged Libya to find a swift solution when its High Judical Council meets on Monday.

President Georgi Parvanov said Sofia would continue its efforts along with its European partners to reach a final agreement, which will be positive for the nurses.
