The ICC issued on Monday an arrest warrant against Kadhafi

The International Criminal Court based in The Hague (Netherlands), next Monday issued arrest warrants for war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Libyan leader, Muammar Gadhafi, his son Saif al Islam Gaddafi and head of the Libyan intelligence Abdullah al Senussi. These orders will be issued after the investigation by the prosecutor of the ICC, Luis Moreno Ocampo directing, and that for this case is with the collaboration of the Spanish prosecutor of the Audiencia Nacional, Dolores Delgado, an expert on international terrorism.

In a recent exclusive interview to La Vanguardia, Luis Moreno Ocampo and suggested the difficulties which would lead the Security Council of the UN carry out the arrest of Gaddafi, whose palaces are currently being bombed by NATO forces. Meanwhile in The Hague last details on the indictments of those who already spoke the chief prosecutor in his recent appearance before the Security Council of the UN on 4 May.

The investigation and arrest warrant next Qadhafi and his closest collaborators of the Resolution 1970 of the Security Council of the United Nations, which was adopted unanimously on February 26, 2011. That day, the Council condemned the government's response to Muammar Gaddafi protests, which occurred from days before in many cities in Libya, for its violence against civilians.

The Security Council authorized the International Criminal Court investigate possible human rights violations, issued an arms embargo and limited freedom of movement of Muammar Qaddafi and connected persons. He also ordered the freezing of their money abroad. Luis Moreno Ocampo, stated in that interview to La Vanguardia that the logical thing was that the NATO forces, under UN orders, whatever they proceed to arrest, alive, Gaddafi and the other two indicted by the ICC a court against the death penalty and may impose on his doomed life imprisonment as maximum punishment.

The penalties imposed by the ICC in principle in Dutch prisons must comply with an agreement that is established for this purpose.
