Tripoli appeals against ICC order | Radio Netherlands Worldwide

The ICC last week rejected Libya's request to postpone the surrender of Saif al-Islam to face war crimes charges. The court ordered Tripoli to "comply with its obligations to enforce the warrant of arrest" and surrender him without delay.

The Libyan ministry of justice is currently paving the way for his transfer to an official detention centre in the capital where he will be tried by Libyan judges, Deputy Justice Minister Khalifa Ashur told journalists in Tripoli.

Seif al-Islam is being held captive by militia in the town of Zintan. The Libyan appeal to the ICC argues that immediately transferring Saif to The Hague after his arrival in Tripoli would be problematic. Observers say this is a tacit admission Tripoli has little official control over Gaddafi.
