Tunis, 22 December 2017:
The Attorney General’s office in Tripoli has denied claims that Saadi Qaddafi had disappeared. Over the last couple of days, rumours on social media have spread that he has not spoken to his family or lawyer for some time.
It has also being claimed they did not know where he was and that his trial was continuously postponed for no apparent reason.
Head of the investigations bureau of the Attorney General’s office, Sadek Assour, insisted that Qaddafi’s footballer son remained in prison in Tripoli and that the rumours were unfounded.
In May, Haitham Tajouri and his Tripoli Revolutionaries Brigade seized Hadba prison, where Saadi were being held. It had been under the control of Khaled Al-Sharif, a former member of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group who is now living in Turkey.
Saadi is now reported to be in Ruwaimi prison in Ain Zara.
He is accused of ordering the murder in March 2006 of Ittihad Tripoli football coach Bashir Al-Rayani.
