Libya appeals ICC ruling on Gaddafi son case
The Hague: Libya has appealed the International Criminal Court`s order that a son and one-time heir apparent of late dictator Muammar Gaddafi be tried in The Hague.
Today`s appeal asks the court to reverse its decision that Seif al-Islam Gaddafi should be tried at the ICC and suspend its order that Libya hand over Seif al-Islam, who is being held by a militia in the Libyan town of Zintan.
Libya says it will provide reasons for its appeal within three weeks.
ICC judges ruled last week that Libya is unable to give Seif al-Islam a fair trial and told the country`s new leaders to hand him to the court to face justice for allegedly murdering and persecuting protesters in the uprising that toppled his father`s regime in 2011.
