Lyon: The World police body Interpol and the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Thursday urged Seif al-Islam, the most prominent son of Muammar Gaddafi, to give himself up and "face justice".
In a statement, the two institutions "urged the former Libyan leader's son Seif to give himself up and for the national authorities of the country where he is hiding to guarantee and facilitate his safe transfer to The Netherlands to face justice."
"Following my discussions with (ICC) Prosecutor (Luis) Moreno-Ocampo, we agree that it is in the best interests of Seif Al-Islam Gaddafi as well as in the interests of justice that he surrender himself as swiftly as possible and face the charges levelled against him," Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said in the statement.
"Colonel Gaddafi will not be able to answer to the crimes levelled against him which makes it even more important that those who were part of his inner circle and who remain at large are captured and face their accusers so that the rule of law can run its course."
Interpol issued a "red notice" in September for the arrest of Gaddafi, who was killed on Thursday, Seif al-Islam and the former regime's intelligence Chief Abdullah al-Senussi.
In June, ICC judges issued arrest warrants against the three for "crimes against humanity" by troops under their orders, using "lethal force" to quell the uprising against his regime.
