Nearly a year after a Libyan militia announced that it had set free the son and heir apparent of slain dictator Moammar Gadhafi, the fate of Seif al-Islam remains a mystery. His reported release from detention by the Abu Bakr al-Sadiq Brigade, which once controlled the town of Zintan in western Libya, has never been confirmed and has fueled wild rumors. While some insist he is still somewhere in Zintan, others claim Seif is dead. And now Seif is back in the news, after France's former President Nicolas Sarkozy was charged in Paris with financing his 2007 election campaign with money taken from Gadhafi. According to several Libyan sources, and diplomats, Seif has not left Zintan, a largely tribal town 170 kilometers southwest of Tripoli and a cradle of the 2011 uprising.The Abu Bakr al-Sadiq Brigade, which captured him more than six years ago, had repeatedly refused to hand Seif over to authorities in Tripoli or the ICC.The ICC prosecutor was not available for comment on Seif's fate.
