Fair trial in Libya 'impossible' for Gaddafi's son, ICC lawyer says

Latest update : 2012-07-06

An International Criminal Court defense lawyer recently released from Libya after being held in the country for more than three weeks said Friday that her detention proved Muammar Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam, would not get a fair trail there.

AP - An International Criminal Court defense lawyer held in Libya for more than three weeks says her detention shows that Moammar Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, cannot get a fair trial in Libya.

Speaking publicly for the first time since her release Monday, Australian lawyer Melinda Taylor said Friday that her actions in Libya were “consistent with my legal obligations” under court rules. She was accused by authorities of endangering national security while meeting in Libya with Seif al-Islam.

Taylor was released by rebels in the western town of Zintan after the Hague-based court apologized for the incident and pledged to investigate her and three colleagues held with her.

Taylor says it would be “impossible for Mr. Gadhafi to be tried in an independent and impartial manner” in Libya.
