The son of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi could face trial in Libya, despite being wanted by the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo is in Tripoli to discuss what to do about recently captured Saif al-Islam.
Even though warrants for crimes against humanity have been issued by the ICC, the prosecutor said Saif al-Islam should stay, if Libya’s justice system can cope.
During his visit to Libya, Moreno-Ocampo has no plans to meet with Saif al-Islam.
Meanwhile, the man whose forces seized Saif al-Islam has been appointed Defence Minister. Osama Al-Juwali is a former officer and Head of the Military Council in Zintan.
The former leader’s heir-apparent has been told by the country’s NTC government that he and his father’s former intelligence chief,
Abdullah al-Senussi, will both receive a fair trial.
