Libya refuses to hand Saif Gaddafi to the ICC

The Libyan government refused to hand over Saif al-Islam Gaddafi to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague today.

The Permanent Representative of Libya to the United Nations, Ibrahim Omar Dabbashi, today said: “The Libyan authorities are keen to ensure a fair and impartial trial for Saif Gaddafi, like many other defendants. However, the security conditions that are currently taking place in Libya prompted the concern of the Libyan court and led to the decision to postpone the meetings so that it can directly consider what circumstances are appropriate for ensuring a fair trial in this case.”
