Tripoli, 2 July:
The President of the International Criminal Court, Sang-Hyun Song, is flying into Tripoli today in anticipation of the release . . .[restrict]of the four-person ICC team detained in Zintan.
The ICC said yesterday that it expected the team, which includes the Australian lawyer Melinda Taylor, to be released today.
Speaking to the Libya Herald Fadi El Abdallah, the official spokesman of the ICC, said it was not yet certain whether the Song would be travelling to Zintan or not, as the logistics of the release were not yet certain.
“The ICC president is travelling to Tripoli today in anticipation of their release, but we do not have precision on the timings for now. We don’t know at this moment whether he will travel to Zintan or remain in Tripoli. It depends how events develop.”
Taylor and three of her ICC colleagues have been held in Zintan since 7 June. [/restrict]
