Tripoli: Libya`s prosecutor general says Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the only son of the former dictator in custody in the country, will be moved to Tripoli to join 37 former regime members in a pre-trial session over charges of murder and crimes committed during 2011 civil war.

Abdel-Qader Radwan told reporters that Gaddafi`s son will be facing an "indictment chamber" Thursday at Tripoli Criminal Court along with former spy chief Abdullah al-Senoussi and other defendants. He said today that the hearing will not be open to public.

Amnesty International has urged authorities to "immediately hand" Gaddafi`s son and al-Senoussi to the International Criminal Court where they are wanted on charges of crimes against humanity.

Amnesty official Hassiba Hadj Sahrahoui said today that a trial in Libya "today will not serve justice."
