Libya justice system stagnant despite funding

Little progress despite millions being spent on prisons and courts to meet international standards.

    Libya holds national elections in less than a week, and one of the challenges facing the new government will be upgrading the justice system.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from Misrata.
