"My responsibility is to investigate crimes and to present (evidence) to the court. Judges will decide on criminal responsibility," ICC chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo told Reuters in an interview.

"The political responsibilities are in the hands of the Security Council … any political decision will be taken by the Security Council, not by me."

Moreno-Ocampo is investigating Muammar Gaddafi, his sons and inner circle, including former foreign minister Moussa Koussa, who defected to London last month saying he made the decision because of attacks by Gaddafi forces on civilians. The prosecutor said he wanted access to Moussa to talk about the crimes committed in Libya, but added that his defection will be "taken into consideration" in the investigation.
