ICC rejects Libya bid to try Gaddafi son

26 April 2012, 12:15

The Hague - The International Criminal Court has again rejected attempts by Libya to delay handing over one of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s sons, who is wanted for trial.

Judges unanimously dismissed Libya's latest appeal against the court's order to surrender Saif al-Islam Gaddafi for trial on charges of murdering and persecuting civilians in the early days of the uprising that toppled his father's regime last year.

Saif al-Islam was captured by rebels last year and is being held in the western town of Zintan

Libyan authorities are resisting, saying they want to put him on trial at home.

Wednesday's decision heaps more pressure on Tripoli to send Saif al-Islam to The Hague.
