Libyan leaders call Sarkozy campaign funding letter 'fake'
Tripoli, May 3 (ANI): Libya's ruling National Transitional Council (NTC) has said that a letter claiming slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi's regime agreed to fund French President Nicolas Sarkozy's 2007 election campaign is 'fake'.
French news site Mediapart recently published a letter, which claimed that Gaddafi's regime offered to spend 30 million pounds on Sarkozy's election campaign.
"We think that the letter is fake," News24 quoted NTC chief Mustafa Abdel Jalil, as saying.
"These are media leaks that started in France. We in the government do not have official information about this but if we have precise information we will release it with transparency," he added.
Abdel Jalil also called on France to help Libya extradite Bashir Saleh, a former Libyan official who was implicated in the alleged campaign scandal.
The letter was addressed to Saleh, Gaddafi's former chief of staff and head of Libya's 40 billion pounds sovereign wealth fund.
The website published what it claimed was a Libyan document from 2006, signed by Gaddafi's then-intelligence chief Moussa Koussa.
According to the report, Koussa from exile in Doha has also dismissed the document as a fake. (ANI)
