ICC says arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam Gaddafi still valid
An arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, is still valid, an ICC spokesman said on Sunday.
“The ICC arrest warrant remains in force and has not changed,” Fadi al-Abdullah told Anadolu Agency.
“The ICC does not comment on political issues,” he added.
Earlier Sunday, Saif al-Islam submitted his application to run in Libya’s upcoming presidential election.
In 2011, the ICC issued an arrest warrant against Saif al-Islam on charges of committing crimes against humanity in Libya.
Libya’s presidential and parliamentary elections are set to take place on Dec. 24.
