Libya: Hague Seeks Action On Seif Al-Islam Trial

The International Criminal Court (ICC) demanded to see more evidence that Libya was moving forward with the case of Seif al-Islam al-Kadhafi, Tripoli Post reported on Wednesday (December 12th).

Magistrates in The Hague gave Tripoli a January 23rd deadline to prove they were preparing for the trial. The ICC asked for "concrete, tangible and pertinent evidence to demonstrate to this chamber that proper investigations are currently on-going and proper and concrete preparations for the trial are on-going".

In October, ICC reviewed a request by Libya to try Seif al-Islam. The court indicted Seif al-Islam al-Kadhafi for crimes against humanity during the pro-democracy uprising last year. He was captured in November 2011.
