TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, the only son of the former dictator in custody in the country, will join 37 former regime members in a pre-trial session in Tripoli over charges of murder and crimes allegedly committed during 2011 civil war, Libya's top prosecutor said Wednesday.
Prosecutor General Abdel-Qader Radwan told reporters that Moammar Gadhafi's son will be facing an "indictment chamber" Thursday at Tripoli Criminal Court along with former spy chief Abdullah al-Senoussi and other defendants. He said that the hearing will not be open to public.
"This is an investigation phase - not a court session," he said. Radwan declined to say whether Gadhafi will remain in Tripoli or return to a prison in Zintan where he's been held.
