Libyan people are trying to get back to some sort of normality but for them there are many lose ends to tie up. One is Saif. The World and the Libyan transitional council will not want a repeat of the death of Colonel Gaddafi. Whilst his unceremonious execution and abuse at the hands of his captors was in many ways understandable it was unacceptable.
Once Saif was apprehended the NTC of Libya insisted that he would be treat properly and tried accordingly, albeit in Libya. The ICC had set a deadline of today, Tuesday January 10, 2012, for an update on the health of Saif. This has now been extended.
The last reports the ICC had received regarding Saif indicated that he was being treat well. It was claimed though that he had not had contact with a lawyer. Libya wants to ensure that Saif is tried for his crimes, in Libya and not in the Hague, Holland. That does not trouble the ICC as long as he is treat fairly.
If Libya refuses to comply with the ICC request they could be referred to the UN security council. The ICC will be loathe to do this hence the deadline extension. If they fail to meet the new deadline of January 23, that could be a different ball game.
Saif has been indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity.
