Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is still on the missing list but apparently wants to hand himself over to the International Criminal Court (ICC) which has an arrest warrant with his name on. This latest gem of information comes from a National Transitional military commander, Abdel Majid Mlegta, but remains unconfirmed. Saif is said to be with his late father’s brother-in-law, former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, also wanted by the ICC and also apparently willing to turn himself in.
The Telegraph reports Mlegta saying “They are proposing a way to hand themselves over to The Hague. They feel that it is not safe for them to stay where they are or to go anywhere.” It has been speculated that both men are in the deserts of southern Libya with intentions to cross into Niger, but Mlegta said that Niger is demanding too much money to take them in. Alarabiya reports that Fadi El Abdallah, spokesman for the ICC, could not confirm the information. He said “We don’t have confirmation about this now. We are trying to contact the NTC for more information.”There have been varied accounts of the whereabouts of Saif Gaddafi emanating from the NTC. Last week they said he was in captured alive and uninjured close to Bani Waldi, but after leaking the information the NTC made no further mention of it and it became obvious he remained on the run.
The information released by Mlegta, stating Gaddafi and Senussi are together is contradicted by a report from Time, claiming the pair has separated and are traveling in separate convoys, with Senussi already in Niger. On Wednesday a Niger presidential advisor said Senussi had slipped into Niger several days ago, under the guidance of Tuaregs, but is hiding.
Niger has stated that it will honor ICC arrest warrants. There is no credible evidence that it has demanded money in return for offering sanctuary for Saif Gaddafi.
