Libya: Seif al-Islam Gaddafi to be tried

2012-04-09 21:18

Tripoli - Libyan officials say Muammar Gaddafi's son and former heir-apparent Seif al-Islam will be put on trial inside Libya and there will be a verdict before mid-June.

Spokesperson of the ruling National Transitional Council Mohammed al-Hareizi said on Monday Seif al-Islam will be transferred to the capital Tripoli within 10 days and that his trial will conclude before parliamentary elections scheduled two months from now.

Seif al-Islam was captured by revolutionary fighters in the southern desert of Libya in November.

Al-Hareizi says he will be tried on charges of murder, corruption and rape dating from his late father's 42-year-rule.

Rights groups have urged Libyan authorities to hand over Seif al-Islam to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for trial.
