THE HAGUE — The International Criminal Court (ICC) chief’s prosecutor on Wednesday called for the “immediate arrest and surrender” of Muammar Qadhafi’s son Seif Al Islam, who was reportedly set free by a militia in Libya.

An arrest warrant issued by the Hague-based ICC in 2011 “remains valid and Libya is obliged to immediately arrest and surrender” the late dictator’s son “regardless of any purported amnesty law in Libya”, Fatou Bensouda said.

Qadhafi’s second son and heir-apparent was said to have been released on Friday by a militia that controls the town of Zintan in western Libya.

The group, which had held Seif Al Islam for more than five years, said he had been set free under an amnesty law promulgated by a parliament based in the country’s east during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

  1. May I call for the immediate arrest of the judges of the International Criminal Court? For discrimination. They seem to concentrate their work on African war Lords totally ignoring the European and American ones. When will they start proceedings against the Bushes, Blair and all those involved in civilian deaths in bombings ?
