Britain: Court Hands Qaddafi Son's Mansion to Libya
Share with others:
The Libyan government won a court order on Friday granting it possession of a $16 million London mansion bought by the playboy son of the former Libyan leader Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi with what a high court judge ruled were stolen Libyan government funds. The eight-bedroom house, with an indoor swimming pool, whirlpool bath and suede-lined home cinema, was bought by Saadi Qaddafi, 38, only months before the Arab Spring protests erupted that led to the overthrow of his father. Mr. Qaddafi, now in Niger, had a reputation of using the London house for cocaine parties and entertaining prostitutes, according to bodyguards who worked at the house.
