NIAMEY: The Nigerien government said on Friday it will not send fallen Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi’s son Saadi back home from Niger, where he fled after the collapse of the regime in Tripoli. Asked by journalists if Niger would turn Qaddafi’s son over to Libya’s new authorities, government spokesman Marou Amadou said, “No.” “With regard to (our) international obligations, we cannot send someone back there where he has no chance of receiving a fair trial,” he said.
