The Interpol on Friday issued an arrest warrant against Libya’s fugitive leader Moammar Gaddafi for his alleged crimes against humanity, following a request by the International Criminal Court.
Interpol said it had issued a “red notice” for the arrest of Gaddafi, his son Seif al-Islam and his intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi.
The Interpol asked its 188 member countries “to take all measures consistent with their national laws to help the ICC locate and apprehend Gaddafi.”
The “request for Interpol Red Notices will significantly restrict the ability of all three men to cross international borders and is a powerful tool to help in their location and arrest,” Interpol chief Ronald Noble was quoted as saying by AFP.
” Gaddafi is a fugitive whose country of nationality and the International Criminal Court want arrested and held accountable for the serious criminal charges that have been brought against him,” the secretary general said.
