Two Swiss businessmen prevented from leaving Libya will be charged and tried for tax evasion and failing to follow visa regulations, Libya's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

"They will be tried and charged with non respect for residence visa procedures and tax evasion," it said in a statement read to reporters at a news conference.

The two have been held in Tripoli since July 2008 following the arrest in Geneva of a son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi for allegedly mistreating two domestic employees.
