He has been on the run since Libya imploded and there have been various rumours concerning his whereabouts and whether or not he is still alive. Earlier this week it was rumoured that he was heading toward the African country of Niger. Now it seems he may be already there and wanting to hand himself over to the ICC or International Criminal Court. Other reports claim he is heading for Zimbabwe.
Gaddafi's son is certain to feel wary. His father was slain in murky circumstances. An ICC member said, "The office of the prosecutor has made it clear that if he surrenders to the ICC, he has the right to be heard in court, he is innocent until proven guilty. The judges will decide."
Saif knows that there are few hiding places. The arrest warrant against him was issued in June 2011 and he has been on the run since. Niger have said that although he is free to enter the country they will obey the law and hand him over.
Of course his greatest concern right now will be what could happen to him should he fall into the hands of the new Libyan authorities. For some though it would just seem poetic justice.
