The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Fatou Bensouda has renewed her call on Libyan authorities to surrender to her office Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, son of late dictator Muammar Gaddafi, fugitive criminal who operates under Khalifa Haftar’s command, Mahmoud Al-Werfalli, and Al-Tuhami Khalid.

Briefing the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Bensouda said the General Command of Khalifa Haftar’s forces don’t want to surrender Al-Werfalli but rather, he was promoted to new military ranks, saying he, Saif and Khalid are all wanted by the ICC for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Bensouda also said that her office is progressing with investigations in order to bring the wanted criminals in Libya to justice, saying the ICC won’t hesitate to issue new arrest warrants of any person who commits war crimes or crimes against humanity in the country.
