The government of Niger has allowed representatives of Libya’s National Transitional Council to question Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saadi, Niger’s Justice Minister Marou Amadou has told reporters.

Saadi Gaddafi has been in Niamey, the capital of Niger, since September 11.

The minister confirmed that handing him over to Libya was out of the question.

At the same time, he said that the current international laws permitted his extradition to any independent international court or a democratic country.

On Thursday, Interpol issued an arrest notice for Saadi Gaddafi.

Breaking the news, Interpol head Ronald Noble said that Saadi had commanded military units during a crackdown on civilian protests.
