Libya seeks home trial for Gaddafi's son01/05/2012 - 14:53:26
The International Criminal Court said today the government of Libya has challenged the court’s right to try Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, for war crimes.
The Hague is authorised by the United Nations to try war crimes committed during Libya’s civil war.
It has issued an arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam on charges of murdering and persecuting civilians in the early days of the uprising that toppled his father’s regime last year.
The court said it has received a formal submission from Libya’s new regime arguing that Saif al-Islam should be tried on Libyan soil.
