PARIS - Ousted Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi must face justice - be it in Libya or at the International Criminal Court, France's foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

"He will have to face justice for all the crimes he has committed in the past 42 years," ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said in response to a question on whether France would be satisfied if Gaddafi went into exile.

"With regard to Gaddafi, he is definitely out of the political picture of the new Libya emerging today ... It will be up to the new Libyan authorities to decide about the judicial follow-up ... (whether) in Libya or the Hague, the ICC."
