ICC seeks information from Libya on Saif al-Islam
The Hague: International Criminal Court judges are asking Libya where Moammar Gaddafi`s son and one-time heir apparent is being held and if court officials can visit him.
Libyan authorities announced Nov. 19 that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi had been captured by fighters in the country`s remote southern desert. Days later they said they plan to put Saif on trial, despite the Hague-based court having issued an arrest warrant on crimes against humanity charges.
The Hague-based court is now debating its next step and says it wants to hear from Saif himself.
In a document released Monday, judges ask Libya`s new rulers "when and where" court officials could meet Saif to ask if he wants a lawyer and "to assess his physical and mental state."
