Tripoli - "Of course it all depends on the actual charges prosecutors bring against the Colonel's son," a Libyan legal source said today.
"If it's aggravated cock-fighting, PhD doctoral fiddles or failure to pay his London Congestion Charge then Tony 'I'm-A-Pretty-Straight-Kinda-Guy' Blair is the defence's top choice," a retired constitutional judge explained.
Current Libyan justice rules mean that character witnesses can sometimes be called to tick a simple online box saying 'He's a good man'.
Another option is the fledgeling Libyan Justice Ministry's video-link testimony service where a simple 'thumbs up' from Blair may tip the wink.
"That's what the Pope did for Saddam Hussain and various renegade Serbian warlords," the ex-judge continued, "can't see why it shouldn't apply to Blair in the Saif Al Gaddafi case."
Fellow accused Abdullah Al Senussi - the Colonel's former intelligence chief - may not be so lucky however in soliciting Blair as a character reference.
The dictator's former chief henchman famously kept Blair waiting for several hours in the desert before issuing a permit for his Bedu tent summit with Colonel Gaddafi in 2007.
Blair later complained that an Al Senussi security barcode permitting him access turned out to be an indelible tattoo but refused offers of plastic surgery preferring to leave his butt intact 'in case of any future security access issues'.
Details of charges are expected later.
