Professor Gerry Simpson (international law, Melbourne Law School, London School of Economics): "government in Tripoli may not get the opportunity to decide whether to send Saif al-Islam to The Hague at all. His captors in Zintan, in the western mountains, are reportedly reluctant to give him up. The leader of the Zintan council was quoted as saying: "We can try him. It will not take too long; we don't need new laws." It is a long way from Zintan to The Hague for Saif al-Islam and Senussi, and for international criminal justice."
