Gaddafi's son safe in Libya - Lawyer

Moammar Gadhafi’s son wants to be the next president of Libya

The lawyer confirmed that the son of the late Libyan leader would present his candidacy for the presidential post in the election this year.

Saif al-Islam, 45, is now in hiding. "It is an inevitable move".

The news was announced by Ayman Abu Ras, the spokesman for the Libyan Popular Front, at a conference in Tunisia, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

"Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi enjoys the support of major tribes in Libya", Al-Sol added. The political party said they would address the country about his plans.

"The Libyan people have the right to choose", Khalid al-Ghuwail said.

Ever since, two rival governments have been struggling for control over the country. The power vacuum in the country, which emerged after the disastrous NATO-led military intervention in 2011, has also been exploited by militants and terrorist groups, including Al-Qaeda and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) offshoots.

Abu Ras said Saif is striving for national reconciliation as well as aiming to rebuild the war-torn nation.

Mr Gaddafi, the western-friendly face of the former regime, had been held by local militias in the city of Zintan until he was reported to have been released last summer. A Libyan court, on July 28, 2015, sentenced slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi's son Seif al-Islam and eight other defendants to death on Tuesday for crimes during the 2011 uprising. While the Tobruk-based government granted Gaddafi Jr. full amnesty in June 2017, the 45-year-old still has a standing ICC arrest warrant over crimes against humanity allegedly committed during the 2011 Arab Spring protests.
