Libya: Surrender Saif al-Islam Gaddafi to ICC | Human Rights Watch

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who was reportedly apprehended on November 19 in southern Libya, is subject to an ICC arrest warrant for crimes against humanity in an investigation authorized by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970. The resolution requires the cooperation of Libyan authorities with any ICC investigation into serious crimes committed in Libya, including the surrender of ICC suspects.

“The authorities will send an important message that there’s a new era in Libya, marked by the rule of law, by treating Saif al-Islam humanely and surrendering him to the ICC,” said Richard Dicker, international justice director at Human Rights Watch. “His fair prosecution at the ICC will afford Libyans a chance to see justice served in a trial that the international community stands behind.”
