In his motion, OPCD chief Xavier-Jean Keita notes that the ICC issued an arrest warrant for crimes against humanity against Abdullah Al-Senoussi on June, 27, 2011.
Al-Senoussi was arrested in Nouakchott in March 2012. On September 5, Mauritanian authorities extradited him to Libya. “The fact that Libya has secured Mr Al-Senussi’s transfer from Mauritania does not legitimize their right to try him: a defendant’s rights should not be sold to the highest bidder”, Xavier-Jean Keita argues.
ICC has not issued yet an official statement regarding Senoussi's extradition.
