LIBYAN rebel leaders have appealed to Spain to release millions of euros held in the name of one of Gaddafi’s sons.
Jamis Gaddafi – who was reportedly recently killed in an air attack on Tripoli – was studying in Madrid when the conflict began but returned home to take control of the 32 Brigade.
While various accounts in his name have been embargoed, there are many legal obstacles standing in the way to sending it back to Libya.
Jamis’s accounts represent only a fraction of the Libyan funds frozen in Spain which could amount to two billion euros.
Gaddafi himself has a 6,000 hectare estate in Málaga, and in is receipt of regular payments made by Spanish oil company Repsol under contractual obligations.
