Saif al-Islam Gaddhafi should face murder charges the ICC. That's according to the United Nations which said his trial did not meet international standards. The proceedings "fell short of international norms and standards for fair trial and also breached Libyan law in some respects", it said. Also, no prosecution witnesses were called to testify in court, undermining the defendants' ability to challenge evidence. The U.N. report on the trial cited serious violations of due process, such as prolonged detention without access to families or lawyers, and allegations of torture. Since his father's toppling, Saif has been in the custody of the Zintan brigades who have refused to hand him over to authorities in Tripoli.
