Gaddafi: ‘Libya funded Sarkozy’s French poll campaign’

The son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has alleged that his country helped finance Nicolas Sarkozy’s 2007 presidential election campaign.

“We funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal everything,” Saif al-Islam said.

His remarks to the Euronews TV channel came days after Libyan state TV reported a “grave secret” that would bring about Mr Sarkozy’s downfall.

The Elysee Palace has denied Mr Sarkozy benefited from any funding from Libya.

“We deny it, quite evidently,” a spokesman told Le Monde’s website.
