ICC-wanted Libyan killer says turned himself in to east Libya’s military police

Al-Werfalli has two International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrants on him, he has been urged to surrender by the ICC Prosecutor many times since last August, but neither he nor Haftar – his leader – answered the ICC request for his surrender.
Mahmoud Al-Werfalli, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the alleged summary execution of dozens of people has handed himself in to the military police in eastern Libya, he claimed in a video on social media.
It was not clear whether the apparent move would lead to any action being taken against the Saiq Force commander, who is part of Khalifa Haftar’s so-called army or any restrictions on his movement.
Al-Werfalli conducted January 24 summary execution of 10 detainees in front of Bayat Al-Ridwan mosque in Benghazi, in the same spot the twin car bombings took place on January 22.
According to sources from Benghazi, the commander of the self-styled army, Khalifa Haftar and his serial killer – Al-Werfalli – conducted the summary execution of the ten captives on Wednesday as a retaliatory act as they accused their opponents in the city of being behind the attacks of Tuesday, which have not been probed yet.
Last month, the United Nations called for Al-Werfalli to be handed over to the ICC immediately.
