Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam has been released from custody after his death sentence was quashed, his British lawyer has confirmed.

Karim Khan QC said he was now petitioning the international criminal court to drop its charges against Saif, which would allow him to travel abroad without facing arrest.

Saif, 44, the most prominent of Gaddafi’s eight children, was sentenced to death by a Tripoli court last July in a mass trial of former regime officials.

Khan said the sentence had been quashed by Libya’s new UN-backed government this year, and Saif was now at an undisclosed location after being released from house arrest in the mountain town of Zintan where he had been held for five years.
