Rebels holding on to Gaddafi's son

21 November 2011, 08:50

Zintan - The rebels who captured Muammar Gaddafi's son and one-time heir apparent say they will hold him until a court system is set up in Libya and are demanding that he be tried inside the country.

Rebels from the western mountain town of Zintan captured Seif al-Islam on Saturday in the southern Libyan desert, raising questions about whether they will turn him over to the new transitional government in Tripoli that took power after Gaddafi fell or to the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands, which wants to try him on charges of crimes against humanity.

The head of Zintan's military council, Mohammed al-Khabash, said on Sunday that Seif al-Islam will be held in Zintan until a court system is established in Libya.
