Nicolas Sarkozy lashed out at journalists and rejected claims he took €50 million from Muammar Gaddafi to fund his 2007 presidential campaign before backing an insurgency against him, as documents alleging a money-trail between the two emerged.
"If he had financed it [the 2007 campaign], then I haven't been very grateful," Sarkozy sneered at a TF1 presenter accusing her of sympathizing with the Gaddafis.Libya’s late-leader was brutally murdered following a NATO campaign against him led by France and the UK, both of whom had welcomed Gaddafi back into the political fold. "Gaddafi, who is known for talking nonsense, even said that there were cheques. Well, then the son should just go ahead and produce them," he added.
