Nicolas Sarkozy has denied allegations that he received campaign contributions from Gaddafi:
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.
In the interview, Saif al-Islam referred to Mr Sarkozy as “this clown” and said he was given assistance so that he could help the Libyan people.
“But he’s disappointed us,” he said. “Give us back our money. We have all the bank details and documents for the transfer operations and we will make everything public soon.”
