The Hague: One of Muammar Gaddafi`s daughters
has asked to intervene in proceedings against her brother at the International Criminal Court, saying she wants to protect his interests.

The court has charged Saif al-Islam Gaddafi with crimes
against humanity for his alleged involvement in the brutal
crackdown early last year on anti-government protesters who
eventually toppled his father`s 42-year-old dictatorship.

Saif was arrested in November by rebel fighters in
Libya`s remote southern desert and has been held largely
without access to the outside world ever since.

Libya`s new rulers say they want to try Saif. Today Aisha
Gaddafi filed a request to act as a "friend of the court" to
provide "concrete information" she said could help judges
decide their next step.
