“This is a very, very high-profile case … . Many will see it as a test case [for Libyan authorities].”

Mr. Abrahams of Human Rights Watch added, “It is not impossible, but the challenges to a fair trial are great.”

There are about 8,000 detainees in more than 60 locations in Libya, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.
