It has been reported that Major Mahmoud al-Werfalli handed himself into military police this month but the Libyan National Army and a Libyan parliamentary committee have since announced that Libya will not hand over Major al-Werfalli due to an on-going domestic investigation.

The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Major al-Werfalli in August 2017 in relation to alleged summary executions of dozens of people in Libya, which has been supported by an Interpol Red Notice.

The situation in Libya is under investigation by the ICC despite the country not being a State Party to the Rome Statute. In 2011 the UN Security Council unanimously referred the situation to the ICC.
