Congressman Olver Releases Statement on Gaddafi


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Olver released the following statement on the death of Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi:

"Libya has suffered for decades under the corrupt and tyrannical rule of Moammar Gaddafi. With his rule and personal influence now finally over, the people of Libya have an opportunity to unite and begin a new era of democracy, freedom and prosperity for all its citizens. Though that path may be difficult and long, I believe it is achievable, and the government taking shape in Libya should make political openness, ideological tolerance, international cooperation and individual rights, all of which were missing during the Gaddafi years, a cornerstone of a new, better Libya."
