Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo told the Associated Press on Friday the International Court was having an ‘indirect negotiations’ with Gaddafi’s fugitive son, Seif al-Islam, through intermediaries, giving him assurance he would receive a fair trial and could find a country of residence for him if acquitted or after he completed a prison sentence, Huffpost World said.
An adviser to the president of Niger, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the court’s intermediaries have made contact with Seif, whose whereabouts was unknown, but believed to be in the company of desert dwellers and mercenaries offering him refuge in an African country that does not cooperate with the court.
Moreno-Ocampo, speaking on a telephone from Hague said, "We are having informal conversations with Seif Gadhafi in order to see if he can be surrendered to the court…We know he has a different option because apparently there is a group of mercenaries willing to move him to a country, probably Zimbabwe."
He said Seif has pressed for clarifications about his fate should he be acquitted and he has made it clear he could ask the judges ‘to send him to a country other than Libya.’
Seif and former Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi were indicted by the International Court in June for unleashing a campaign of murder and torture to suppress Libyan revolt.
