Son of Former Libya Dictator, Saadi Ghaddafi, Out of Prison

Son of Libya’s late Muammar Gaddafi, Saadi Gaddafi, has been freed from jail, a justice ministry source confirmed to Journalist on Sunday

According to the Justice Ministry, Gaddafi was free to stay in the country or leave, an official source confirmed that the 47-year-old immediately departed on a plane to Istanbul

The 47-year-old Saadi was known for his playboy lifestyle during his father’s rule. He fled to Niger following the uprising that toppled his father before being extradited back to Libya.

The former professional footballer had been held in a Tripoli prison, accused of crimes committed against protesters in 2011 and of the 2005 killing of Libyan football coach Bashir al-Rayani.

Libya has suffered chaos, division and violence in the 10 years since the uprising, three of the dictator’s seven sons were killed, and the country has since sunk into chaos, with rival factions competing for power.

A 2020 ceasefire ended the factional fighting and paved the way for peace talks and the formation of a transitional government this March, ahead of elections set for December.

But preparations are marred by disputes between key stakeholders over when to hold elections, what elections to hold, and on what constitutional grounds.
