Libya to Release Four International Criminal Court Staff

Libya will release four staff members working for the Hague-based International Criminal Court and allow them to return to their countries, the Libya News Agency reported, citing a military commander in the city of Zintan.

The four, who include Melinda Taylor, an Australian defense attorney, were arrested last month after Libyan authorities said Taylor tried to pass on documents to Muammar Qaddafi’s son and one-time heir-apparent, Saif al-Islam Qaddafi.

Al-Ajmi al-Esary, the head of the military unit that had arrested the four in Zintan, said they would be released later in the day during a press conference that will also include the court’s head, Judge Sang Hyun Song. He said the investigation will nonetheless continue.

The ICC has criticized their detention, saying they had immunity while on assignment for the court.
