Muammar Gaddafi, Abhallha Mone Moussa Moummare’s lawyer Charles Warara confirmed to NewsDay that the adopted son of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is considering seeking political asylum in Zimbabwe after spending three years in remand prison without trial.

Warara said they will file an application after considering all available options. Said Warara:

He is still looking at options and among the options available was to seek asylum or that he be taken to a country which would agree to keep him for safety. We shall be filing soon after considering all available options.

In July this year, Moummare approached the High Court on a self-representation basis, challenging his continued detention before Warara stepped in to assist him. Initially, the Libyan had wanted to be treated as a refuge, but now he intends to get asylum so that he could settle in Zimbabwe and restart his life.
