Libya seeks more time on Gaddafi son

2012-01-11 12:08
The Hague - Libyan authorities have asked for more time to answer questions from the International Criminal Court about the case of Muammar Gaddafi’s son, who is wanted by the court but is being held by Libyan fighters.

The court says in a document released on Tuesday that Libya says it needs three more weeks to respond to questions asked on December 06 by judges "due to the security situation" in the country.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was arrested in November by fighters in Libya's remote southern desert. He has been held largely incommunicado ever since and Libyan authorities say they want to put him on trial, despite an arrest warrant issued by the ICC last year.
