Libya not ready to try Saif al-Islam Gaddafi - ICC

Saturday, 01 June 2013 - 8:08



The International Criminal Court's pre-trial chamber has rejected Libya's request to try the son of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam.


Gaddafi has been indicted by the ICC on war crimes charges relating to the 2011 uprising which toppled his father.


He remains in the custody of a local militia that captured him in late 2011, and is not in official state custody.


This and other challenges meant Libya was not ready to host the trial, the pre-trial chamber's judges said.
