ZINTAN, Libya (AP) -- The Libyan information minister says Moammar Gadhafi's son and one-time heir apparent will be tried at home and will not be handed over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Mahmoud Shammam says Libya's National Transitional Council will discuss its decision with the ICC's chief prosecutor when he visits Libya on Monday.
Seif al-Islam Gadhafi is wanted by the ICC on charges of crimes against humanity.
But Shammam told The Associated Press on Sunday that it would only be fair for Libyans to try Seif al-Islam at home where he "committed crimes against Libyan people."
Seif al-Islam was captured in the desert of southern Libya on Saturday.
