Prosecution Response to “Defence Request concerning Mr. Gaddafi’s continued detention in Libya”

Editorial Comment:

All political prisoners detained in Tripoli, Zintan and Misrata, are outside the jurisdiction of recognized state territory. Therefore, an order from the United Nations Security Council or the ICC demanding the release or surrender of a prisoner, would find no legitimate target. A.V.


Libya’s failure to surrender Mr Gaddafi to the Court should be referred to the Security Council.
