The International Criminal Court is concerned about the fate of Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam.

This came in statements made by its employees who had attempted to visit Saif al-Islam in his jail in June, but were arrested and held in custody until earlier this week. It follows from their first interviews that they believe that al-Islam’s days are numbered. ICC lawyer Melinda Taylor claims that he is unlikely to get a fair and unbiased trial. The new Libyan authorities want to try Saif al-Islam in Libya for crimes against humanity. The International Criminal Court, however, is pressing for his extradition to The Hague for fear that he cannot expect to be treated fairly at home.
