19th November 2011, Comments 0 comments

Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal has welcomed the capture of Gaddafi, the fugitive son of Libya's deceased former dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.

Saif al-Islam should now be brought to the Netherlands for trial at the International Criminal Court ICC in The Hague, Mr Rosenthal said. If Libya wants the trial to be held on Libyan soil, it should only do so with the ICC’s consent, he added.

With Saif al-Islam Gaddafi behind bars, Libya can now concentrate on building a better future, the minister said.
