All six accused appealed and the court ordered a retrial, and scrapped the death sentences. Sofia and Tripoli have seeked help and raised funds to help the infected children. Spokesperson Idriss Lagha said that the AIDS-infected children would be sent to French (Paris and Marseille) and Italian hospitals (Rome and Milan) in the next two weeks for treatment. Libya ambassador and Bulgarian ambassador met at Tripoli, to discuss the publication of Kadhafi cartoons in the Bulgarian daily Novinar. The cartoons were insulting the Libyan justice.
