ICC wants Interpol to issue Red Notice to arrest Gadhafi

The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has requested Interpol to issue a Red Notice to arrest fallen Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi for alleged crimes against humanity.

A Red Notice from the international police organization seeks the provisional arrest of a wanted person with a view to extradition or surrender to an international court. The court also asked for Red Notices for the arrest of Gadhafi's son Saif Al-Islam Gadhafi and his brother-in-law Abdullah Al-Senussi.

      Yea well good luck catching Daffy. That will have to be outside of Libya because if he is caught in Libya, the only way any international jurisdiction will get their hands on him is after he is already dead. The Transitional Council has already made it crystal clear that Daffy is only going to Hague after Libya is done with him. That means after he is hung or shot which I can assure you will not be expensive if ya know what I mean.

    Lol red notice!. Such things dont matter, the person is being wanted for war crimes by his own people and he cannot be found in his country, how is interpol going to find. For what we know he might be in Iran sipping on tea while everyone is looking for him in lybia. The point is that this man is never going to be captured; maybe dead but certainly not alive.

    The Libyans are fully capable of handling the Gadhafi "problem". He will probably never seen the inside of a courtroom, anyway.

    And many here, ignore the larger problem....to wit:

    At last, the US is on the right side of a revolution/civil war. Hopefully, we will not revert to our long-standing inclination to meddle with/lead the government receiving our largesse. If we force the TNC into making moves that are unpopular with the Libyan people, we will have undone our good works and will be returning to the actions that have sullied our national moral reputation too many times in the past.

    Gadhafi will be, or already has been, punished.....the West does not need to hold the noose, nor build the gallows.

      If the TNC, however, is anxious to rid themselves of Gadhafi....or if another country turns him over, then by all means, let the ICC try him.

    He will not be caught and they think Saif went thru Nigeria who is a signatory of the ICC creation, but they will probably just travel thru and go to one of the African countries that Gadhafi has been sending millions too for years. He probably did that knowing he would need a place to hide one day. Well it's ONE DAY.

    France and America have no justification to support bombings in Libya or try to over throw gadaffi. Fine he has ruled for a long time, and should have been pressured to hold elections which would have helped reduced tension and arms control around Africa.

    The Libya people where not suffering during his rule, some hated him some liked him but the situation now is that militant groups and freedom fighters will now want to take advantage of the situation and kill the same people that supported them and spread tension all over the African region. Justifying bomdings and supporting the rebels will not solve the problems in an already hostile region.

    Americans have been known to spread wars on regions they have no ideal on and justify
    their wars on oppression and calculated miss rule but we all know some of these regions the west have soiled their hands in later come back to hurt them.

      The terror attacks in 1986 and 1989 provide ample justification for the West overthrowing Gadhafi. It should have been done twenty years ago.

    I wonder whether they will make Gadhafi return the money and treasures he’s looted from the country’s treasury, over the past decades.

    Homes, cars, boats, jewels, gold, etc.–all of it should be returned to the Libyan people.

    And Gadhafi's family and friends should not be allowed to keep any of it.

    Amazing how similar this operation is to the way the Bay of Pigs was originally conceived. (Representation as a popular uprising but actually initiated from without to further political agendas and CIA cultural perversities..) The next generation of Yale grads did it better, but it's so obviously the exact same plan that no one believes all the disinformation planted in the news media.

    Why does CNN publish it without question? Oh yeah... The last guy to defy the CIA got popped in Dallas by a lone gunman.

    What about the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the illegal and immoral war against Iraq. Gadhafi is as elusive as the Weapons of MAss Destruction. PEace to ALL.

    This so-called "court" exists only to harass the small guys. When are you going to show some backbone and go after the big fish – bush, chenney, rumsveld, etc?
    And how about Daffy's daughter in-law who did unspeakable harm to her house maid?
    She should be prosecuted! Being a woman should not be grounds for immunity to prosecution. Yet, nobody talks about it.

      I believe ALL the Gadhafis should get a "Bin Laden Double Tap Special."

    Not all American hate President Bush, He did his best to keep America safe and it was for 8 years, no attack or attempt of attack on Record during his Presidency. I call him Brave and Bold. We need more leaders like him.
    Obama on other hand is the follower not the Leader!
    Gaddafi will be caught and justice will be done. Rats cannot hide in holes for too long.. Remember Saddam??
    Same fate for Gaddafi!
    People who comment here ignorantly just show how uneducated they are!! Go get some education or a job!

      If I were you Suni, I'd be quite ashamed to let people know just how ignorant I was by posting the above. First of all, Mohammar Qadaffy did a great deal for Libya, especially for that country's poor but this the right-wing news media will never talk about! And secondly, the ICC soarly needs to indict Bush and Cheney but won't since they're just a bunch of useless bureaucrats sitting around waiting to get their pay.

    In a 107 page report published in July the Human Rights Watch says that there is enough evidence to investigate Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld & George Tenet for war crimes. So much for the legacy of corruption & torture we left in Iraq.

    Bush-Cheney era of infamy saw this great country of ours begin the downward slide of decline as a world power. 9/11 & Iraq invasion , events which initiated factors responsible for the mess we find ourselves in today.
