Libya – Gaddafi son in good health

Friday, April 20, 2012

Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam, detained in the Libyan town of Zintan, 160 kilometers west of Tripoli, is in good health, said Libya’s prime minister upon meeting with war crimes prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo on Thursday.

“I assure the world that Saif is being given a humanitarian treatment with respect and according to human rights guidelines,” said Abdurrahim El-Keib, speaking to journalists after meeting with Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who is in Libya to look into the situation regarding the place where Gaddafi’s son is to go on trial.

The government is determined to give Saif a fair trial, said the PM.

The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam on June 27th 2011 after prosecutors accused him of involvement in killing of protesters during the revolt that toppled and killed his Father.
