A Libyan court on Thursday adjourned until February 20 the trial of Seif al-Islam, son of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who faces charges of undermining Libya's national security and "insulting" the country's national anthem.
Australian lawyer Melinda Taylor, who is accused of providing Seif al-Islam with "classified documents," is also being tried in the case.
Although journalists were barred from attending the court session, one local television channel managed to broadcast segments of the trial proceedings, during which Seif al-Islam appeared in the cage wearing prison garb.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has requested to try Gaddafi's son, who it accuses of having committed crimes against humanity.
The international court has also raised concerns that Seif al-Islam might not receive a fair trial in Libya.
Legal experts consider the Libyan charges against Seif al-Islam to be "minor" compared to the alleged crimes against humanity of which he has been accused by the ICC.Güncelleme Tarihi: 12 Aralık 2013, 14:25
