United Nations: The ICC will decide where Seif al-Islam, son of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, will stand trial to face charges for crimes against humanity, the court's Prosecutor has said.
International Criminal Court Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo and Deputy Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda arrived in Tripoli for talks with national authorities days after al-Islam's arrest in Libya and amid unconfirmed reports regarding the arrest of former intelligence chief Abdullah Al Sanousi.
"Their arrest is a crucial step in bringing to justice those most responsible for crimes committed in Libya," Moreno-Ocampo said in a statement.
"The issue of where the trials will be held has to be resolved through consultations with the Court," he said.
"In the end, the ICC judges will decide. There are legal standards which will have to be adhered to."
He said he will seek information from the interim Libyan authorities about proposed national proceedings to assist the Court in analysing the admissibility of the case against Al-Islam.
In June the ICC, based in The Hague in the Netherlands, had issued arrest warrants against Gaddafi, his son and Al Sanousi for their roles in attacks against pro-democracy protesters, hundreds of whom were killed in the uprising against Gaddafi's tyrannical regime.
The former Libyan ruler was killed last month during the final days of the eight-month-long conflict.
