The Hague: ICC issued the arrest of Gaddafi

Libya's dictator accused of crimes against humanity. Now the International Criminal Court in The Hague has issued arrest warrant against Muammar al-Gaddafi and his son and brother. Gaddafi and his son and his brother were in the criminal sense personally responsible for the crimes that were committed to quell the popular uprising in Libya, was chief prosecutor Luis Ocampo claims.

He presented the court with a more than 70-page indictment with more than 1,200 individual documents before. By all 116 Member States warrants of the ICC are obliged to arrest the 69-year-old Gadhafi and the co-defendants, if there is a possibility. Gaddafi that his country is leaving soon, however, is not likely.

He had declared he would fight to death in Libya. According to some diplomats in The Hague issued arrest warrants could complicate a negotiated solution: As officially sought-after indicted war criminals would not be able to Gaddafi to be ready to go into a country of exile, it said. Prosecutor Mno-Ocampo said, however, there is no alternative to a consistent law enforcement.
