Libya denies Gadhafi, Al-Senoussi trials imminent
Tuesday - 1/15/2013, 11:48am EST
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Libyan authorities say the trials of one of Moammar Gadhafi's sons and the slain dictator's former spy chief are not scheduled to start next month, after all.
Lawyers for Libya's new rulers say in a letter sent to the International Criminal Court Tuesday that investigations into Seif al-Islam Gadhafi and Abdullah al-Senoussi are close to completion and pretrial proceedings will likely begin in February. The letter came after the court asked Libya to explain reports that their trial was set for February.
The court has indicted Seif al-Islam and Al-Senoussi on crimes against humanity charges stemming from Gadhafi's brutal crackdown on the 2011 rebellion that eventually toppled his four-decade dictatorship.
However, Libya has said it wants to try both men instead of sending them to The Hague to face justice.
