Libya to try Gaddafi’s son

Libya will put deposed dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s son on trial, defying a demand by the International Criminal Court, the Libyan representative to the Hague court said yesterday.

Ahmed al-Jehani said the trial of Seif al-Islam Gaddafi will begin next month.

One possible venue is Zintan, a town in the western mountains, where he is being held.

Seif al-Islam Gaddafi was considered his father’s political heir. The ICC issued an arrest warrant and demanded to try him on war crimes. Libya has argued that its new regime should try him.
