The American “Vanity Fair” magazine has published a report in which it reveals many secrets related to Libyan money in a number of European capitals, and many terrible issues!
She said: “It did not take long for the Austrian authorities to identify the identity of the deceased, 69-year-old Libyan Shukri Ghanem; Although not a well-known name, “Ghanim” was an educated, mysterious and powerful figure, and after obtaining his doctorate, he rose to become prime minister, and later oil minister, in a black country. enjoy gold and corruption!
A US investigator, who asked not to be identified, said to discuss sensitive information surrounding the matter: When Shukri Ghanem died, it was estimated that he had billions as head of the National Oil Corporation, he was withdrawing money and transferring with Gaddafi’s approval. No one believes that Shukri’s death was a coincidence. Maybe it was planned!
The investigator added that “Shukri Ghanem” was sitting in the hotel restaurant in Austria, and he was wearing his elegant blue suit and black-rimmed glasses, which allowed him to interfere in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, where many rich people live. drag clothes.
The investigator said: I would not be surprised if hundreds of billions, perhaps trillions, were stolen by the regime that Gaddafi set up to evade sanctions and transfer assets and wealth outside Libya and around the world; Qaddafi KNOWS HOW TO PLAY THE GAME. Gaddafi was perhaps the most greedy for the embezzlement of funds and nepotism that kept him in power for 42 years, enriching those in his orbit in ways that are difficult to comprehend and may not be accurately calculated. Now there is a worldwide quest to reclaim some of that fortune.
And the American magazine went on to say: This story is a deep dive into these efforts as the investigator, who requested anonymity, met a variety of personalities who appeared to try to restore Libya’s wealth, including works of art in the recent weeks, as well as investigating how the device works The mysterious man under the supervision of “Mohamed Mansali,” the Libyan Asset Recovery and Administration Office “Larmo” who managed to restore some “dignity” to the Libyan people.
At the request of the United Nations, countries froze in the period when Gaddafi’s rule ended tens of billions belonging to the Gaddafi family or its inner circle and state-sanctioned subsidiaries, but much of that wealth was hidden, according to intelligence sources, by loyalists. trusted by the tribe of Gaddafi as these individuals have their own operations as it is clear that there is a spy, assistant, translator and former waiter in a small village on the waterfront belonging to one of Gaddafi’s sons and with Gaddafi’s death in 2011, his carefully designed mechanism of theft collapsed while repeatedly evading international sanctions.
The magazine went on to say that there were many of those who tended to plunder Gaddafi, and they are figures who worked with him in the regime at the time, who diverted this money for their own purposes, including some figures who openly opposed. with the opposition by 2012, since then treasure hunters have begun to divert fortunes to their interests. Where a US defense contractor enters into an agreement with the interim authorities to search for funds and hidden accounts in exchange for proceeds and unleashes a team of veterans from the CIA, the CIA, the US Defense Agency, the US IRS and the National Security Council to to support the effort; Art theft experts have begun searching for precious artifacts drawn from Libya and displayed in notable museums and private hands over the years.
According to the US investigator, a veteran Libyan intelligence official told him that all these people with intelligence, military, financial and political backgrounds came to us and said there is a billion dollars in cash in the Republic of Benin and tens of billions in South. Africa; But they have always demanded hundreds of thousands of dollars in advance, money that belongs to the Libyans.
The Larmo office acquired by Munsley was established in 2017, after which the race to find the loot became quite loose.
The American investigator said: A retired American intelligence officer told me that we had already obtained an authorization from the Minister of Justice, but when we arrived in Switzerland and visited a bank that allegedly kept money, the director said: Who are you?
Two weeks ago there were other people here who claimed the same thing, so we informed Tripoli of the names and found out that the other men were claiming to be following Libya’s money, but then it was discovered that they were lying; But they managed to get a lot of money!
Munsley has apparently achieved some success by focusing his search for money.He said with apparent enthusiasm that we have $ 32 billion worth of dollar accounts in European banks; 58 properties in Paris; And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The promise and danger of his mission came into focus. One time he justified the arrest of “Anwar Aref,” the man who ran Larmo, and the next time he called a confidant of Gaddafi on the blacklist in the United States. States and quickly made the embassy The Libyan in Washington discusses the latest in a series of law enforcement’s confiscation of rare and precious antiquities that have been driven out of his country over the years.
The magazine pointed out that the United States had evacuated its diplomats from Tripoli in 2014, and since then “Lawrence”, an American, has taken a leading seat in the fight against terrorism, and then joined another mission last summer joined, which is to assist the Larmo office in an effort to get Libya’s money back.
Four magnificent statues were also displayed in the Louvre Museum, which was stolen from the city of Cyrene, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the east of the country.
French customs said French law allowed the display of illegally traded works of art for the purpose of preserving them, and that these antiquities would be returned to their “legal owner” after a judicial inquiry.
Lawrence, who recruits Munsley to help with the research process, smiled when he thought of what he did when fiction and stories cost hundreds of billions of dollars, creating his own counterculture and microcosm.
In August, a Canadian acquaintance who observed the search for missing Libyan funds helped create a “lucrative opportunity” in Ghana; But he was keen on details, and after a spate of cryptocurrency exchanges, Lawrence learned that the promise included the recovery and withdrawal of Gaddafi’s cash, classified as family valuables, and in a well-known customs declaration of a safe storage area those sums were divided and distributed by someone named “Uncle Sam” in Ghana, Africa.
According to the magazine, “Ben Fishman”, who served as Obama’s official in the National Security Council for Libya and North Africa, said: “We have frozen everything and the United Nations Security Council has made two decisions, the first recommending the confiscation. of specific assets belonging to Gaddafi, his family and his main allies, and the second targeted state-owned entities. Like the Central Bank of Libya and the LIA to this day, some $ 70 billion in LIA funds alone are still “frozen”.
Warshavsky took up the case for fundraising, which could eventually become the largest international asset recovery effort ever. judge to compel eight of the world’s largest banks to hand over records of Gaddafi’s money movements.
Larmo’s mandate to Warsnavsky is to get back anything that was stolen or misappropriated from Libya on public sources such as the UN, WikiLeaks, the Panama Papers, etc. Dollars were stolen, and these sources also indicate that the Gaddafi family alone can reach 40 to 200 billion dollars.
Aref was detained in Libya and several people familiar with the matter confirmed that he was detained at a center in Tripoli run by the Ministry of Interior. These sources indicated that while Aref was allowed access to food and medicine, his communication devices were confiscated, and he received only sporadic visits to his family.
“These sources told me that the Libyan prosecutor general did not respond satisfactorily to their requests to explain why Aref was arrested in the first place and on his order a US official said she believed the court ruling issued by the company “was a very public gesture for some members of Libya’s ruling elite, and may have been concerned that legal action in New York could catch the sitting officials who played their part in this matter.”
If “Anwar Aref” had continued his work behind the scenes, he would not have ended up in custody. Western sources in regular contact with Aref said he was released after nearly two months when the appeals courts upheld a previous ruling by the Administrative Control Authority, which stated that the office of the prime minister did not have the power to remove Aref and to replace.
While Aref did not agree to comment on this story, some believe he was relieved of his duties at Larmo because Dabaiba wanted to keep Aref’s portfolio within his powers. Meanwhile, Dabaiba’s office did not provide answers to questions about Aref’s eviction or “Al-Dabaiba” “motives for placing Larmo under Mensley’s leadership.
