Libyan authorities have released Saadi Gaddafi, who spent more than seven years in jail in Tripoli after his father was overthrown and murdered by NATO-backed rebels, according to multiple media reports citing government sources. “Saadi Muammar Gaddafi has been freed from prison,” a justice ministry source told AFP. “The chief prosecutor asked, several months ago, for the execution of the decision relating to Saadi Gaddafi as soon as all the required conditions had been satisfied.” Saadi Gaddafi, 48, was cleared of chargers of “murder, deception, threats, enslavement” back in 2018, but only released now, apparently as part of a national reconciliation effort ahead of December elections. He was free to stay in Libya or leave, but according to an official source cited by Reuters he chose to immediately depart on a plane to Istanbul.
