Ex-Gaddafi aide's daughters kidnapped

2011-02-24 12:51
Paris - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s men have abducted two daughters of his exiled former protocol chief and forced them to denounce their father on state television, the exiled aide's lawyer said on Thursday.

Nuri el-Mismari, who is exiled in France where he was arrested last year at the request of Tripoli on suspicion of embezzlement, has made various declarations to the media about Gaddafi’s demise in the face of mass protests.

On Wednesday, he told AFP that "the Libyans are not going to stop. Muammar Gaddafi over. He's lost everything."

Mismari's lawyer Frederic Landon said that two of his daughters were forced to speak on Libyan state television to denounce their father's declarations.

"Two of Mr el-Mismari's daughters have just been abducted by men working for Mr Gaddafi and forcibly taken to the television to deny their father's statements," Landon told AFP.

"They are still in the hands of Muammar Gaddafi’s men, which shows there's a will for reprisals."

Mismari was arrested in November following an international arrest warrant issued for him on behalf of Libya, which accuses him of embezzling around $9m in state funds.

He was freed on December 15 pending the extradition hearing.
