Uncertainty over handover of former Libyan dictator Gaddafi's son for pre-trial
TRIPOLI (AFP) - The son of slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was due to appear at a pre-trial hearing with more than 30 others in Tripoli on Thursday although doubts remained whether his ex-rebel captors would allow him to attend.
Libya's prosecutor general Abdulqader Radwan said on Wednesday he had ordered Seif al-Islam to be transferred to the Tripoli court from Zintan, 180 kilometres to the southwest.
The former heir apparent to Gaddafi and others including ex-intelligence supremo Abdullah al-Senussi are accused of crimes during the 2011 revolt which toppled Gaddafi.
Baghdadi al-Mahmudi, the last prime minister to serve under Gaddafi, and Mansur Daw, who headed the People's Guard, are also among the accused in one of the most important legal cases in Libyan history.
