ICC: Prosecute Saif al-Islam Gaddafi

Muammar Gaddafi may still be at large, but three of his sons—Saif al-Islam, Saadi, and Mohammed—are in rebel custody. What fate awaits them? The International Criminal Court is seeking the transfer of Saif to The Hague, where he would face charges of crimes against humanity. Negotiations are ongoing with the rebels, and ICC chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo says he hopes Saif will “soon be in The Hague.” Gaddafi’s four remaining sons are believed to have escaped or to be in hiding.
