Elizabeth Wilmshurst, a British expert on international law, will represent Switzerland’s side, the foreign ministry told the Swiss News Agency on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Libya has chosen Indian attorney Sreenivasa Pammaraju Rao.

The two countries now have 30 days to nominate a chairman for the court, which will investigate the arrest of the son of Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi.

Hannibal Gaddafi and his wife were detained in Geneva on suspicion of beating their servants.

Once a chairman has been named, the tribunal will have 60 days to settle the case.
