Last Updated: Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 00:18

Jerusalem: The Israeli attorney for the daughter of Muammar Gaddafi says those responsible for the long time leader`s killing a year ago should be brought to justice.

The lawyer, Nick Kaufman, was hired last year by the late dictator`s daughter, Aisha. Kaufman has represented other controversial figures in the past on the grounds that everybody deserves a fair trial.

Gaddafi`s son Saif al-Islam was captured a month after his father`s death on October 20, 2011, and is being held in Libya.

The International Criminal Court has not approved yet the new Libyan government`s plans to try Saif al-Islam in Libya for crimes against humanity.
Libya wants to try him at home.

Kaufman accused Libya of being incapable of giving Gaddafi`s son a fair trial. He spoke today to a news agency.
