 In the latest judicial action, a Libyan official commuted the death sentences of five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian physician to life in prison. The six health care workers have been imprisoned since 1999 after being convicted of infecting more than 400 Libyan children with the AIDS virus. ANA has long recognized the pain of the children and their families, as well as the need to mobilize resources for treatment. However, ANA has considered the conviction of these professionals as a grave miscarriage of justice.
