Libya can try Gaddafi`s son, says ICC

The ICC prosecutor arrived in Tripoli to meet Libyan authorities following the arrest of Gaddafi`s son Saif al-Islam.

Tripoli: The International Criminal Court`s prosecutor says Libya can put Moammar Gaddafi`s son and one-time heir apparent on trial at home, but The Hague court will help and its judges must be involved.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo was in Tripoli on Tuesday for talks with Libya`s new leaders about their plans try Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

The son of the former Libyan leader was captured Saturday in southern Libya.

The ICC has charged him with crimes against humanity. Libya`s new leaders have said they will try Seif al-Islam at home even though they have yet to set up a court system.

Moreno-Ocampo says if Libya does so, "we will discuss with them how to inform the judges and they can do it, but our judges have to be involved."
