Tripoli, 2 January:
The official spokesperson for Libya’s Attorney General, Taha Bara, said that Saif Al-Islam Qaddafi and Abdullah Senussi will be put on trial in a month’s time, Libya FM radio station reported.
Speaking yesterday, Bara said that the reason for the delay in their trial was the continued questionning of Abdulah Al-Senussi, which had not been completed yet. Bara felt that Senussi was privy to information that would have relevance to the Saif trial.
The spokesperson confirmed that Libya was not obliged to hand him over to the International Criminal Court and that he will be put on trial in Libya.
Bara went further and confirmed that Saif will be put on trial in Zintan as Zintan now fulfilled all the requirements needed to facilitate the trial.
