The chief prosecutor of International Criminal Court has requested an arrest warrant for the Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. This will serve as a “diplomatic” pressure point on the dictator in addition to the military campaign against his regime. If the warrant is granted, Gadhafi will only have fellow authoritarian regimes as visiting destinations. This is a positive step for in this age, slaughter of citizens by a dictator cannot be condoned. The Libyan ruler must be brought to justice and handed a one-way ticket to The Hague.
