The prosecutor from the International Criminal Court, or ICC, has said that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi does not necessarily have to be tried in the Hague if Libya’s own justice system is up to the task.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo is in Tripoli for talks with the interim government, but says he’s not planning on meeting Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam, who is wanted by the ICC for crimes against humanity. Saif was captured by NTC fighters in southern Libya on Saturday, and is being held in the mountain town of Zintan, southwest of the capital.

Footage has been released showing Saif’s first hours in captivity, appearing to be treated well by his seemingly well-disciplined captors. Rights groups have called on Libya to hand Saif over to the Hague for trial, and Moreno-Ocampo has stressed that even if the Libyans want to try him on their own soil, they must still cooperate with the ICC.
