Where did Saif al-Islam Gaddafi go? This is the question that comes up on the lips of several pro-Kadhafi Libyans. According to several local media, since the release of the son of the deceased Libyan guide from his place of detention in the small town of Zenten, questions arise about the destination he would have borrowed.
The absence of any evidence of where he has been for some time raises questions. Aged 45, the son of Muammar Gaddafi, has not been seen for several days. During his trial he had appeared via videoconference from Zenten.
Although several Libyan and diplomatic sources say that the son Gaddafi is still in Zenten, 170 km southwest of Tripoli, it remains that in this heavily tribal city, languages do not easily dislocate.
So difficult to confirm or deny the presence of Saif al-Islam Gaddafi in this place. He was also announced on the side of Tunisia without any real proof. With the calm in this city of 40,000 inhabitants, it is difficult to really know the direction taken by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.
All that can be seen is that the city is transformed: modern buildings emerge from the earth amid scattered fields of olive trees.
Knowing that Gaddafi’s son is wanted by the ICC (International Criminal Court), it is good war that his supporters give no information on where he might be. Other sources announced it on the side of Tunisia without any precision.
Also note that Saif al-Islam was sentenced to death in absentia in July 2015 for crimes against humanity committed during the revolt that led to the fall and death of his father in 2011.
