Official: Ousted Libyan Dictator’s Son To Face Trial in August

(TRIPOLI, Libya) — A Libyan official says the trial of ousted dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s son, his spy chief and his last prime minister will take place in August. Al-Seddik al-Sur of the state prosecutor’s office told reporters Monday that Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, Abdullah al-Senoussi and ex-premier al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, along with ex-spokesman Milad Daman, will be tried for crimes committed during under Gadhafi’s 42-year rule and during the eight-month civil war that deposed him. Last week Libya appealed the International Criminal Court’s order to try Seif al-Islam in The Hague. Libya also asked for suspension of its order to him over to the ICC. Seif al-Islam is being held by a militia in the Libyan town of Zintan. ICC judges ruled that Libya cannot give Seif al-Islam a fair trial.
