LIBYAPROSPECT – London
The International Criminal Court (ICC) renewed its request to arrest the field commander of the special forces affiliated with Dignity Operation, Mahmud Al-Werfalli, who carried out several executions without a court in Benghazi.
Al-Werfalli, who is supported and encouraged by the commander of the Dignity Operation, General Khalifa Haftar, appeared in videos killing more than 30 prisoners.
It is worth mentioning that the Prosecutor of the ICC, Fatou Bensouda, stressed last month that the Libyan authorities are responsible for arresting Al-Werfalli and handing him to the ICC. She called the International Community to help Libya in arresting Al-Werfalli.
In his reaction to that, Al-Werfalli commented on the Arrest Warrant by saying that it doesn’t worth the ink that was used in writing it, adding that he didn’t do any crime because he implemented the orders of his leadership.
On the other hand, the ICC decision was welcomed internationally by many sides, but will Haftar sacrifice and hand Al-Werfalli to the ICC to gain the support of the International support in Libya?Legal observers said that the ICC decision is correct as it depended on evidence that needs an immediate implementation in the absence of the Libyan courts.
