Gaddafi son may yet face prosecution in The Hague

THE prospect of Muammar Gaddafi's best-known son facing trial in The Hague for crimes against humanity suddenly increased last night with the revelation that he had been in touch with the International Criminal Court.

ICC chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, revealed there had been "informal conversations" with Saif al-Islam Gaddafi (pictured right), who has been on the run since the Libyan regime fell in August, and whose father was killed last week, trying to leave his home town of Sirte.

Saif al-Islam wants to surrender to the ICC because he feels unsafe. He is wanted in connection with the bombing and shooting of protesters. (© Independent News Service)
