Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif Al-Islam has proposed to hand himself into the war crimes court in The Hague.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al Islam is proposing to hand himself in to the International Criminal Court, according to a National Transitional Council official.
Former intelligence chief Abdullah al Senussi is also said to be considering the same course of action.
‘They are proposing a way to hand themselves over to The Hague,’ Abdel Majid Mlegta, a military official with the NTC, said.
However, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has said it had no confirmation the pair would be surrendering.
‘We don’t have confirmation about this now. We are trying to contact the NTC for more information,’ said ICC spokesman Fadi El Abdallah.
In June, the ICC issued arrest warrants for Gaddafi, his son Saif and al Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity after the UN Security Council referred the Libyan situation to the court in February.
The news came as Russia’s Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, said he had been ‘disgusted’ by television images of Gaddafi’s last minutes.
He said: Almost all of Gaddafi’s family has been killed; his corpse was shown on all global television channels, it was impossible to watch without disgust.
