Tripoli — Col Gadhafi's son has said he wants to be put on trial in The Hague, rather than in his home country, his lawyers have said.
According to BBC, Saif al-Islam said if he was executed after a trial in Libya then it would be tantamount to murder, according to documents submitted to the International Criminal Court.
"I am not afraid to die but if you execute me after such a trial you should just call it murder and be done with it," Saif al-Islam was quoted by lawyers as saying.
The 40-year-old is being held by militia in the city of Zintan.
In June, a team sent by the ICC were arrested after meeting Saif al-Islam, and held for more than three weeks.
