ICC in Libya over case of Saif Gaddafi
Tripoli - The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor has arrived in the Libyan capital to follow up on the case of Muammar Gaddafi’s captured son Saif al-Islam.
The Hague-based court is locked in a legal tug-of-war with Libya's ruling National Transitional Council over who should try Saif al-Islam, who was captured last year following the ouster and death of his father.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo told The Associated Press at Tripoli's airport on Wednesday he would also travel to the coastal city of Misrata to investigate allegations of abuse in detention facilities run by militiamen who fought Gaddafi’s forces.
"There's torture, extrajudicial executions, rape of both men and women," the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in January.
