Libya seeks cus­tody of Gad­hafi spy-chief

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

NOUAK­CHOTT | A top Libyan of­fi­cial trav­eled to the Mau­ri­ta­nian cap­i­tal Mon­day to press for the ex­tra­di­tion of one of Moam­mar Gad­hafi’s clos­est as­so­ciates, the for­mer Libyan in­tel­li­gence chief Ab­dul­lah al-se­noussi.

Libyan Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Mustafa Abu Shaghour told re­porters at the air­port that he had come with a plea on be­half of the peo­ple of Libya.

“We are here to ask our Mau­ri­ta­nian broth­ers to hand over this crim­i­nal who has com­mit­ted many crimes against the Libyan peo­ple,” he said. “We will judge him in Libya.”

The for­mer in­tel­li­gence chief is ac­cused of at­tack­ing civil­ians dur­ing the up­ris­ing in Libya last year and of the 1989 bomb­ing of a French air­liner. The In­ter­na­tional Crim­i­nal Court, France and Libya all said they want to pros­e­cute Mr. al-se­noussi.
