"I call on Libya and all other states, if in a position to do so, to immediately arrest and surrender Mr Gaddafi to the ICC", prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a statement adding that her office was trying to verify his release as reported.

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court on Wednesday called for the arrest and surrender of Saif al Islam Gaddafi, who is wanted on war crimes charges for allegedly suppressing opposition to the rule of his father, former Libya ruler Muammar Gaddafi.

The group, which had held Seif Al Islam for more than five years, said he had been set free under an amnesty law promulgated by a parliament based in the country's east during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Saif al-Islam was sentenced to death in absentia in July 2015 by the Tripoli appeal court for genocide, recruiting of mercenaries and forming armed groups during the 2011 uprising that overthrew his father's regime.

A leak from the closed session with Comey suggested that this problematic factor was the Mayflower meeting with Kislyak. Sessions' testimony, he said, is all the more notable because he is "someone on the side of the president ".

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, attends a hearing behind bars in a courtroom in Zintan May 25, 2014.

Bensouda also called on Libyan authorities to surrender Muammar Gaddafi's former security chief Al-Tuhamy Mohamed Khaled.

"It is imperative for both suspects to be apprehended and immediately surrendered to the custody of the ICC so that their guilt or innocence can be established", Bensouda said. The North African country is split between three governments: two in Tripoli and one in Tobruk.

The ICC has had an arrest warrant out on Gaddafi since 2011 for crimes against humanity.
