Gaddafi`s son to be tried in September in Libya
Tripoli: The trial of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of former dictator Col Muammar Gaddafi, is slated to be held in September, Libya’s envoy to the Hague court has said.
Ahmed al-Jehani, who corresponds between Libya and The Hague court, said the trial of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is scheduled to take place next month in September.
The venue of trial is most probably Zintan in Libya, where Saif al-Gaddafi lies captivated since November when he was captured by rebels.
The ICC had issued an arrest warrant against Saif and demanded his trial on charges of committing war crimes during the Libyan conflict which culminated in Muammar Gaddafi being killed by the rebels.
But, Libya wants that Saif should be tried at home by the new regime.
The ICC has expressed concern that Libya is not set up to give the younger Gaddafi a fair trial.
During his four decades of rule, Muammar Gaddafi dismantled most institutions, setting himself up as the sole ruler.
After Gaddafi`s overthrow, capture and killing last year, interim rulers struggled to unite the country, leaving powerful militias and tribes in control of various areas. A newly elected parliament is working on appointing a Cabinet after choosing a president. Among its main tasks is to build a functioning judiciary.
Libya has insisted that it is capable of putting on a proper trial for Saif al-Islam Gaddafi. He has expressed a preference to be extradited to the Hague for trial.
