THE Spanish Government has frozen all of Gaddafi’s assets including 6,000 hectares of undeveloped land in Benahavis.
The Libyan leader had planned to build 1,915 houses, a golf course and a conference centre on the land in the La Resinera.
But Josefina Cruz, the Andalucia Minister for Public Works and Housing, has announced the project is “irrelevant” to the whole of Spain as it marks “just one of many projects.”
“The most important thing is the decision to block the assets of such a person in democratic respect for the people of Libya,” Cruz added.
The move comes as Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero is continuing his tour of the Gulf and North African countries.
He made the announcement from Tunisia, that the Government will freeze any bank accounts that the Gaddafi regime holds in the country.
Spain has now joined ranks with Switzerland, Austria and Britain who have also frozen Libyan assets in line with EU regulations.
