Interpol has sent out a global alert against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and 15 senior officials in power, almost all family members, as several of his sons and daughter Aisha, according to a statement released by the body to its 188 member countries. The intention is to facilitate the implementation of UN sanctions and cooperate with the investigation that launched the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Qaddafi for crimes against humanity.

The order against these 16 persons was issued by "participating in planned attacks against civilians, including aerial bombardments." The aim is to coordinate the actions of the member countries of Interpol to any of the listed can cross its borders and ensure that their assets will remain frozen out of Libya.

"As a priority, we must work to protect the civilian population of Libya and any country to which these individuals Libyans may try to travel or move their assets," said Interpol Secretary General, Robert K. Noble. Databases of Interpol, where they send information to law enforcement authorities of member countries, will serve for the investigation of the ICC, said Noble.

The Criminal Court prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, said that after the opening of the case against the Libyan regime, "in a few months" could make the request of a warrant. This alert would be a step against the Libyan leader. According to Ocampo, Gaddafi has the responsibility "made" into the acts of repression of the Libyan forces against peaceful demonstrators occurred in February in his country.
