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."
