Monday, 31 January, 2011: Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi finds himself in a potentially dangerous predicament. He is sandwiched between two Arab countries (Tunisia and Egypt) which have convulsed with massive social unrest. Moreover, his prestige among the Arab world has been severely damaged by some embarrassing revelations in diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks. The cables indicated that Qaddafi and his sons live a life filled with wine, women and song, as well as domestic violence, drunk driving and wild parties – all in stark contrast to their image as upholding traditional Islamic and Bedouin tribal values.

Monday, 31 January, 2011: Libya, concerned that mass anti-government demonstrations in neighbouring Egypt and the toppling of President Zine Abedine Ben Ali of Tunisia on its western border could fuel further protests in the North African country, has cancelled all soccer matches, according to Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera’s Arabic-language news network quoted unidentified Libyan sources as saying a state of emergency and a security alert had been declared in Libyan areas bordering on Egypt. It said security sources were deploying in the region. [Bleacher Report] More
Monday, 31 January, 2011: Tunisia’s uprising has proven that, despite a long period of dormancy, the Arab world is capable of organic political change. Demonstrations in Libya, Algeria, Egypt and Yemen have shown that the region’s citizens are tired of their stagnant governments, many of which have been ruled for decades by the same personalities who seem unable to deal with the challenges of the modern world. In contrast to their inert leadership, Arab populations are changing rapidly. The population of the region is increasingly young and, according to the United Nations, around half of the 350 million Arabs are under 25. This figure is expected to double by 2050 if it continues to grow at current rates. Some figures are staggering: in Algeria for example, it is estimated that 75 percent of the population is under 30.

Saturday, 29 January, 2011: Every time I visited Aymen's mother, in that old Cairo apartment, she would repeat the last exchange she had with her son. "No, you won't go," Umm Aymen had told her son. "I have to," Aymen said. "No," she said, "you won't go." It was typical of Aymen to say so little, to drive you to repeat what you had just said. While the rest of us would get hot about politics, Aymen was always the one who remained cool. I never stopped wondering what he made of us. He was a law student at Cairo University – this was the late 1980s. His mother was trying to convince him not to attend one of the caged demonstrations permitted only inside the walls of the university. [The Guardian] More
Saturday, 29 January, 2011: While media analysts debate whether social media is fueling revolt in the Middle East and North Africa or whether the US has helped keep regional dictatorships in power, one thing is very clear: The Arab masses are sick and tired of being sick and tired. From Tunisia spread a renewed hope that Arabs are experiencing a re-awakening of the collective conscience. The protests we have seen there as well as in Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Algeria and Yemen are not simply about the deposition of an authoritarian president or ruling party. They are about dismantling archaic forms of governance in which the ruler is considered to be beyond reproach and economic policies are determined by his self-preserving business elite allies.

Friday, 28 January, 2011: Jan 27 (Reuters) - Libya has set up a $24-billion fund for investment and local development that will focus on providing housing for its rapidly growing population, the online Oea newspaper reported on Thursday. Quoting Industry and Trade Minister Mohammed Hweji, Oea said the setting up of the fund follows "decreases in custom and tax duties on food products and in prices of other staples". In rare unrest, coinciding with a popular revolt in neighbouring Tunisia, Libyan citizens earlier this month occupied hundreds of homes that were still under construction and ransacked the offices of foreign contractors who are building them.

Friday, 28 January, 2011: Kenyan Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka left the country late Wednesday to solicit for the support of Libya and Nigeria ahead of the Africa Union summit for a UN deferral of Kenyan case under article 16 of the Rome Statute, the ICC's founding treaty. Addressing a news conference before his departure, Musyoka said he was acting on instructions from President Mwai Kibaki in his shuttle diplomacy across Africa to lobby support for a deferral of the case before the International Criminal Court (ICC) by UN Security Council. "I am not on a personal mission. I am going as a special envoy of the President of the Republic of Kenya. [People Daily] More

Thursday, 27 January, 2011: An article in Vanity Fair, published today, cites senior Scottish Executive officials as confirming Adbelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi was to start receiving chemotherapy for his prostate cancer. Dr Karol Sikora, a cancer specialist who examined the bomber, told the magazine two drugs could have been considered, one of which would have extended the Libyan’s life by up to 19 months and the other by “many months” more than that. However, Megrahi was released shortly after on compassionate grounds on the basis he had less than three months to live. He later started chemotherapy in Libya and is still alive more than 17 months later. [Telegraph] More
Thursday, 27 January, 2011: [WikiLeaks]: This cable was created on 26 October 2009, according to WikiLeaks. S E C R E T TRIPOLI 000860 SIPDIS STATE FOR NEA/MAG E.O. 12958: DECL: 10/26/2019 TAGS: PGOV PREL ECON PINR LY SUBJECT: WHAT PASSES FOR POLITICAL FERMENT IN LIBYA REF: A) TRIPOLI 805; B) TRIPOLI 819 CLASSIFIED BY: Gene A. Cretz, Ambassador, U.S. Embassy Tripoli, Department of State. REASON: 1.4 (b), (d) ¶1. (S) Summary: Reform-minded Libyans are "cautiously hopeful" regarding the recent appointment of Saif al-Islam al-Qadhafi as "General Coordinator." While Saif al-Islam is widely seen as a reformer, embassy contacts note that he will face continued resistance from the Libyan old guard. Some observers believe that the appointment was meant to give the regime a "new lease on life" and counter subtle yet growing voices of opposition, particularly with respect to corruption. Given that Saif al-Islam was out of the country when the appointment was made, the meaning of his new position will only start to become clear when he returns to Tripoli. End summary.

Thursday, 27 January, 2011: Libya's political system is as opaque as any in the world. One thing is clear, however: it is a system in thrall to a single personality. The world's longest serving republican head of state, Colonel Muammar Qadhafi has exercised almost total control over Libya for more than 41 years. Throughout his tenure, the "Brother Leader" has increasingly centralized power in his own hands. He has embedded his authority through tribal and family ties, while protecting it through the support of numerous military and security organs. Qadhafi maintains power by denying officials the opportunity to develop their own power base, by orchestrating rivalries and playing individuals and factions off against each other.

Thursday, 27 January, 2011: Libya have requested to play Kenya in an international friendly on the next Fifa free date, February 9.

Wednesday, 26 January, 2011: Rafi Ali al-Madani, a special representative of Libyan leader Mu'ammar Al-Qadhafi, has said that Libya will build a special clinic in the former Israeli embassy building in Nouakchott. He said that the Israeli embassy once spread venom in this country and that it should be obliterated through building a health project that would "translate its previous unwelcome presence." Al-Madani attacked Western democracy, saying that it had caused the deterioration of political conditions in the African continent. He added, "What happened in Tunisia was a disaster created by foreign intervention in an Arab and African countries that lived in a good economic situation." [Memri] More
Wednesday, 26 January, 2011: TUNIS Jan 25 (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Tuesday he feared the change of power in Tunisia was being exploited by foreign intervention. Speaking in an interview broadcast on the private Tunisian Nessma television station, he denied that he had invited deposed President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali to neighbouring Libya. "I fear for the Tunisian revolution because I see foreign intervention ... It serves foreign interests," Gaddafi said. He went on: "Who said I invited Ben Ali (to Libya)? I did not invite him, I did not suggest that, that is not why I called him. "This is nonsense ... I do not go against the interests of the Tunisian people." [Reuters] More
Wednesday, 26 January, 2011: The controversy involving payments of USD20m owed to the Libyan government has taken a new twist following discovery of a promissory note, offering USD 2m to the country’s agent, Massoud Mohamed Nasser, to have Mohamed Enterprises (Tanzania) Limited MeTL) given favour in buying debt agreement involving the money. MeTL had promised to pay the said USD2m to Nasser also known as Massoud Mohamed Massoud if he was to complete debt buying agreement dated September 15, 2004. The money held at the Tanzania Investment Bank (TIB) is part of USD121.9m debt owed by Tanzania in respect of crude oil supplied by the government of Libya in 1993. [IPP] More

Tuesday, 25 January, 2011: DUBLIN -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/912d3c/libya_oil_and_gas) has announced the addition of the "Libya Oil and Gas Report Q1 2011" report to their offering. The Libya Oil and Gas Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, oil and gas associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Libya's oil and gas industry. The latest Libya Oil & Gas Report from BMI forecasts that the country will account for 7.56% of African regional oil demand by 2015, while providing 15.56% of supply. African regional oil use of 3.06mn barrels per day (b/d) in 2001 will rise to an estimated 3.81mn b/d in 2010. It should average 3.90mn b/d in 2011 and then rise to around 4.40mn b/d by 2015.

Tuesday, 25 January, 2011: NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 24 - Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka heads to Libya on Tuesday for a meeting with President Muammar Gaddafi, in the final stage of continental efforts to garner support from the African Union for a deferral of the Kenya case at the International Criminal Court. Mr Gaddafi is the immediate past chairman of the African Union and his support for Kenya’s bid to shore up backing from the AU during a summit in Ethiopia later this week is seen as crucial. Once Kenya gets the African Union on its side, it is expected that the continental body will petition the United Nations Security Council to seek a deferral of the case against six suspects the ICC wants prosecuted over Kenya’s 2008-post election violence.

Tuesday, 25 January, 2011: SEOUL, Jan 24 (Bernama) -- Libya's government has promised to make compensation for the damage inflicted on international construction firms, including those from South Korea, during rioting earlier this month, Yonhap News Agency reported an official as saying Monday. Hundreds of Libyan people raided four South Korean-run construction sites in the African nation on Jan 14-15, destroying heavy equipment, looting money and other valuables, and setting vehicles and other facilities on fire, according to company officials. One South Korean company official was injured during the rioting. The disturbance appears to have happened after residents misunderstood a senior Libyan official's remark that homes being built in Libya belong to the Libyan people and that they have the right to live in those houses, according to media reports.

High-priced construction equipment and building materials were looted and scores of construction workers were injured.

Sunday, 23 January, 2011: THE Scottish Government has ruled out an official inquiry into the conviction of the Lockerbie bomber, campaigners have been told. The Justice for Megrahi Committee last year lodged a petition with MSPs calling for an official probe into the conviction of Libyan Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi. But ministers have now written back to the committee ruling this out - even tho ugh they admit that the Scottish Government could hold such an inquiry. Figures obtained by Scottish Labour also reveal today that the administration has received 10,000 letters and e-mails about the Lockerbie bombing since Megrahi was released in August 2009. In their letter to campaigners on a potential probe into the bomber's conviction, ministers said: "The government has no plans to initiate an inquiry on this issue." [Scotsman] More
Sunday, 23 January, 2011: Tripoli, Libya – The Libyan leader, Mouamar Kadhafi, on Thursday held talks on phone with the president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, during which he sympathised with Brazilians following deaths and damage caused by floods in the east of the country. Heavy rains in Brazil have caused the worst landslides in the history of the country, leaving 739 people dead, according to figures released by the Brazilian civil defence. The figures indicate that about 200 people have disappeared and nearly 14,000 others left homeless. The talks between the two leaders, according to a Libyan official source, enabled the Libyan leader to repeat his congratulations to Mrs Roussef on her election as president of Brazil, “which is an historic event in the country with regard to her career a woman activist”.

Sunday, 23 January, 2011: SEOUL, Jan 21 (Bernama) -- Libya has allowed two South Koreans accused of violating the country's religious law to leave the country after leader Muammar al-Qaddafi pardoned them following resolution of a diplomatic row, Yonhap news agency quoted Seoul's foreign ministry as saying Friday. The two were detained last year on charges of engaging in Christian missions work in the Muslim country in a case related to a dispute over allegations that a South Korean intelligence agent attempted to collect information on the Libyan leader and the country's weapons systems. The row was fully resolved in late September at a meeting between Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi and South Korean legislator Lee Sang-deuk, who is a brother of President Lee Myung-bak. Libya has since released the two Koreans from detention. [Bernama] More
Sunday, 23 January, 2011: Libya must improve the protection of migrants crossing its territory and recognise the status of refugees before Parliament can give its green light to a future cooperation agreement with Tripoli, the European Parliament warned on Thursday. In addition, say MEPs, EU states should only return migrants to Libya if certain standards are met. The planned framework agreement with Libya would cover political relations, immigration and energy, and could pave the way for a free trade area in the long run. Negotiations began in November 2008 and the accord would, if concluded, be the first bilateral contractual relationship between the EU and Libya. In its recommendation to the Council on the ongoing negotiations, MEPs back the idea of stepping up EU-Libya relations and opening an EU delegation office in Tripoli. However, they call for stricter conditions to ensure basic freedoms. [EU Parliament] More

Saturday, 22 January, 2011: The Government of Liberia (GOL) yesterday formally handed over to the Libyan African Investment Company (LAICO) the five-star Ducor Palace Hotel and the Gbarnga Rubber Processing Site respectively, both of which are to be redeveloped with Libyan financing. The Ducor Palace Hotel is in Monrovia, Montserrado County, while the Gbarnga Rubber Processing Site is located on the western end of Gbarnga, Bong County. Both were destroyed as a result of Liberian’s 14-year civil war. Though the official time of commencement of the operations were not disclosed, the cost of the two projects is estimated at US$65 million, the Chief GOL Representative of Libyan Investments, S.T. Eugene Peabody, told the gathering. [Liberian Observer] More
Saturday, 22 January, 2011: In the 1970s, the young Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was the most impatient exponent of Arab unity. In 1973, he flew to Tunisia in order to convince his next-door neighbour to form a union with Libya. What happened during that summit says a lot about why Tunisia is the first Arab nation to overthrow a dictator through peaceful mass protest. The first president of Tunisia, Habib Bourguiba, 70 years old by then, sat at a simple table with a microphone in front of him and a small glass of water to one side. He wore a French suit, his grey hair was slicked back, and he had on a pair of square dark glasses. He looked like Jorge Luis Borges. But, unlike the Argentinian author, Bourguiba wasn't a gifted orator. As a public speaker, the Sorbonne graduate lacked tact and was given to excitement. "What is the point of uniting 1.5 million Libyans with 5 million Tunisians?" he asked, mockingly. [Guardian] More
Saturday, 22 January, 2011: The Parliamentary delegation which visited Libya under the leadership of Hambantota District Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa had discussions with Libyan Leader Col Muammar Gadaffi, Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmoudi and other Ministers.

Friday, 21 January, 2011: BRASILIA - Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi offered aid Thursday to Brazil in the wake of devastating floods in the Latin American country that have killed at least 744 people, Brazilian officials said. "The Libyan leader called the president (Dilma Rousseff) to congratulate her on her January 1 inauguration. During the conversation, Kadhafi offered his support and whatever help might be necessary for the victims of the tragedy caused by the rains," a spokeswoman for the Brazilian presidency told AFP. Rousseff thanked Kadhafi for the offer but no agreement was made for Libyan aid, she added. Freakishly heavy rains last week sent torrents of water and mud slicing through towns and villages in a mountainous area just north of Rio. [AFP] More
Friday, 21 January, 2011: Recent developments in Libya suggest the political power struggle between moderates and the country's conservative old guard is back in full swing -- a spat some speculators trace to a rift in the inner circle of leader Moammar Kadafi's family. In one of the first signs incidating that something might be underway on the political front in the secluded North African republic was when the board of the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Organization (GICDO) demoted the reform-minded Saif al Islam Kadafi, son of the leader -- to an honorary position. GICDO also announced around the same time that it was withdrawing from politics and that it no longer would promote human rights in Libya -- a move fueling speculation among analysts of the nation that conservative forces are pushing the country's moderates to the sidelines and that reformist hopes for Libya might be dwindling.

Friday, 21 January, 2011: GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Libyan aid convoy arrived in Gaza on Thursday, after Egyptian authorities granted it permission to dock. Onboard were 17 Libyan activists and six media figures, including the head of Libya's journalist union, Salema Ahmad Ash-Sha’ab. Authorities in Gaza welcomed the convoy, which they said would deliver medication to hospitals in the besieged enclave. An Israeli commission investigating last May's deadly raid on aid ships trying to break a blockade on the Gaza Strip will release its first report on Sunday, an official source said. The Israeli naval raid killed eight Turkish citizens and one dual Turkish-US national, prompting an international outcry and throwing relations between Israel and Ankara into a deep crisis.

Friday, 21 January, 2011: Cairo, Asharq Al-Awsat- A Libyan official has denied yesterday's claim by a Libyan opposition organization of widespread operations to smuggle large quantities of weapons across the Libyan-Tunisian borders to various Tunisian cities during the past days. The Libyan official, who asked to remain unidentified, told Asharq Al-Awsat in a telephone call from the capital Tripoli: "This is false and untrue information. We are not undertaking any action which can be considered interference in the Tunisian people's internal affairs." He added: "Those spreading these rumors do not want welfare for Libyan-Tunisian relations and do not want Tunisia's security and stability. We are certainly watching the situation there and worried by what is happening but are not interfering in the affairs of others." [Aawsat] More

"I am delighted with the signing of this agreement which offers promising prospects for Sonitel," Niger Prime Minister Mahamadou Danda said at a press conference. The deal gives LAP a controlling stake in Sonitel and its subsidiary SahelCom for a 10-year license period, and extends the Libyan company's reach across Africa after other deals, including the purchase of a 75 percent stake in Zambia's fixed-line operator Zamtel in June. Chief Executive Officer Abdul Basit Al Azzabi said LAP plans to invest some $146 million over five years to modernize the Sonitel-SahelCom network and broaden its capacity. [Forexyard] More

Wednesday, 19 January, 2011: TRUE TO THE promise President Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi made to President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf during her recent visit to Libya, the government of that North African oil-rich country, last Friday, flew into Liberia tons of emergency food supplies. Sirleaf Administration insiders say Libya's response, which is spurred by concerns for the emergent border refugee crisis, is in realization of the extra burden the crisis is likely to put on Liberia's fledgling economy and the yet-to-be solidified capacity of the nation's infrastructure.

Wednesday, 19 January, 2011: Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi, in a moment far from his usual populist rhetoric, criticized the toppling of former Tunisian President Zine Abidine Ben Ali, saying on January 16 that “there is no one better [for Tunisia] than Zine at this time, and I wish he would remain for life.” Qadhafi’s remarks commanded world media attention for their frankness, but not because his views surprised anyone. And indeed there is further evidence that whatever reform impulse existed in Libya in recent years is on the decline. In a surprise move, the board of trustees of the Qadhafi International Charity and Development Foundation, the NGO that Saif al-Islam Qadhafi has chaired since its creation, resolved in mid-December 2010 that it would no longer promote human rights and political reform in Libya.

Wednesday, 19 January, 2011: The Libyan revenues from oil climbed to 40.5B Dinars (US$32.43B) in Y2010, up 61% from a year earlier, the news agency Libya Press reported on Tuesday, citing Libya’s Central Bank. In Y 2009, Libya reported oil revenues of 25.1B Dinars (US$20B). The Crude Oil revenues make up 92% of the country’s Y 2010 revenues, which jumped to US$43.6B Dinars (US$35B) about 35% higher than the Y 2009 revenues. The agency attributed the rise to a remarkable rise in Crude Oil prices. Libya has the largest proven oil reserves in Africa and it has started to lure foreign investors seeking to tap into the Libyan market after the removal of international sanctions.

Wednesday, 19 January, 2011: TRIPOLI: Libyan citizens occupied hundreds of homes at the end of last week that are still under construction and ransacked the offices of foreign contractors that are building them, online newspaper Oea reported.

Oea said housing projects under construction in several cities had come under a “wave of occupation” late on Thursday and early Friday. Some were looted and in a number of cases occupiers sold on the houses for giveaway prices. [Gulf Today] More

Tuesday, 18 January, 2011: BERLIN — German prosecutors have charged a 45-year-old man with gathering information for Libya's intelligence agency on opposition figures living in western Europe. Federal prosecutors said Monday that the man, identified only as Omar K., is charged with espionage on suspicion of working as a spy for Libya from May 2010 until his arrest Sept. 21. Prosecutors did not give his nationality. Prosecutors charge that the suspect met with a Libyan, identified as Adel Ab., in May to give him information in exchange for $3,000. Last week a Berlin court sentenced Adel Ab. to a year and 10 months in prison. Omar K. is further suspected of having been instructed to infiltrate dissident circles to gather information.

Tuesday, 18 January, 2011: Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, has said he regrets the fall of Tunisia's president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, which has left the country in "chaos with no end in sight." "You have suffered a great loss ... There is none better than Zine [El Abidine Ben Ali] to govern Tunisia," he said in a speech broadcast on state radio and television on Saturday. "I do not only hope that he stays until 2014, but for life," he said, stressing that he considered Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia on Friday, still to be the "legal president of Tunisia under the constitution." He said Ben Ali did good things for Tunisia, hailing his handling of the country's economy. "Tunisia, a developed country that is a tourist destination, is becoming prey to hooded gangs, to thefts and fire," he said. [Al Jazeera] More
Tuesday, 18 January, 2011: The protests in Libya against corruption throw up the question whether the Tunisian crisis heralds the beginning of the end for autocratic Arab leaders. The West is encouraged and is hoping for lasting change. The specter of authoritarian regimes falling like dominoes may however be overly optimistic. While there is no doubt that developments in Tunisia have emboldened the discontent across a swath of land stretching from Morocco to the Gulf, it remains to be seen, according to analysts, whether protestors in other Arab countries have the wherewithal to sustain demonstrations and casualties for weeks and to what degree Arab governments have learnt lessons from the Tunisian experience.

Monday, 17 January, 2011: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can add Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy to his list of enemies. The eccentric dictator said in a speech Saturday night that cables leaked by WikiLeaks detailing the spending of Tunisian dictator Zine al-Abedine ben Ali and his family were planted by ambassadors to push along the Tunisian uprising. The cable he was most likely referring to was a cable sent by the U.S. embassy in Tunis, describing Ben Ali's family as corrupt and a "quasi-mafia." "I am concerned for the people of Tunisia, whose sons are dying every day," Khadafy said in an overnight speech according to British newspaper The Telegraph. "And for what? In order to have someone to become president instead of Ben Ali?" [New York Daily News] More
Monday, 17 January, 2011: Protests in several cities in Libya continued for a third day over the late completion of government subsided housing. Last night hundreds of people broke into vacant houses and took over about 800 vacant units in Bani Walid city (180 kilometres south east from the capital, Tripoli). Several activists on social network sites reported that over 600 units in similar projects in Benghazi were taken over yesterday by protesters that have been waiting for years to move in to their homes. The Libyan government has run subsided housing projects for poor families in several cities for years. However local authorities in some projects postponed the delivery of hundreds of housing units to the owners who have already signed contracts and paid most of the installments. [Al Ahram] More

Gaddafi said "the transfer of power from one president to another is simple" and addd that Ben Ali "is still the legitimate president."

The comments will be of concern for consumer countries worried that rising commodity costs are igniting inflation and jeopardising economic recovery. ‘None of the OPEC members find $100 concerning or irrational. Some of the OPEC members see no need for an emergency meeting even with prices at $110 or $120,’ Mirkazemi, OPEC president for 2011, told a news conference. [New Age] More

Sunday, 16 January, 2011: RABAT Jan 15 (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said neighbouring Tunisia is suffering bloodshed and lawlessness because its people were in too much of a rush to get rid of their president. Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisian leader for 23 years, was forced to step down after weeks of protests. His overthrow has reverberated around other countries in the Arab world with long-serving leaders. "I am very pained by what is happening in Tunisia," Gaddafi said in a speech reported by Libya's official Jana news agency. "Tunisia now lives in fear ... Families could be raided and slaughtered in their bedrooms and the citizens in the street killed as if it was the Bolshevik or the American revolution," said Gaddafi, Libya's leader since 1969.

Adams was recognized by World Soccer Magazine as one of the 50 Most Exciting Teenagers on the Planet in their November 2007 issue. But he has struggled to live up to the hype after he was embattled in contractual disagreement between Etoile du Sahel and Atletico Madrid which led to a Fifa ban. [Ghana Soccer Net] More

Sunday, 9 January, 2011: Tripoli's new charitable approach has African governments worried that Gaddafi could become too powerful A special welcome was laid on for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi when he arrived in Uganda in July last year for an African summit: hundreds of children lining the road wearing T-shirts with his face on them. In fact, Gaddafi stood out right from the moment he stepped off his jet wearing sunglasses, a safari suit with silhouettes of the African continent printed on it, and accompanied by a female bodyguard in Bedouin headgear. “It's the usual sideshow,” a senior South African official said of the clamour surrounding Gaddafi at the summit. Gaddafi's opulent entrances are just the most visible part of a huge and growing Libyan influence in Africa that ranges from donated tractors in Gambia to $90m dollar telecoms deals in Chad and hospitals named after the Libyan leader.

The MDC – which has faced Zanu PF accusations of being funded by western countries -- singled out Libya for special mention. Other unnamed embassies, the party said, “have sided with Zanu PF citing, deceptively, what they have termed their historical links with that party as the main reason for open support.” The party added: “Because of Zimbabwe’s post-colonial history, any country that hobnobs and tries to breathe life to a dictatorship and a humanly-hazardous party, such as Zanu PF, must realise that the people of Zimbabwe always take such actions seriously.

Saturday, 8 January, 2011: Talks between Malta with Libya on contested offshore territorial claims have been likened to “a waltz, moving two steps forward and one step back” by the representative of a Canadian oil company. Edwin Vella, the Maltese representative of Heritage Oil that was given a licence by Malta to conduct oil exploration on the Medina Bank in the south east, noted the dispute between both countries went as far back as the 1970s. In March 2008, Libya had written to Heritage Oil warning the company not to do any drilling in Area 7, which the North African state claimed as its own. Heritage Oil had not yet started operations in Area 7 and Area 2 (which lies to the north of the disputed zone) where it was given a licence by the Maltese government to explore.

The report has spelt out that there was as such no AQ Khan network but several members of the so-called network (actually suppliers) were collaborating with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and MI6. It has been established beyond doubt that three Tinners – father Frederick Tinner and his two sons Marco and Urs Tinners – were working for the CIA since at least the year 2000 until Dr Khan’s fall from the high pedestal in February 4, 2004, on charges of proliferation to Libya, Iran and North Korea.

The songbirds are bought for less than €10 in Malta but are sold for some 10 times as much in Libya.

Friday, 7 January, 2011: PRLog (Press Release) – Jan 06, 2011 – Libya's relative economic isolation buffered it from the worst of the global financial crisis, increasing its appeal to foreign investors looking for new growth opportunities. Our real GDP growth forecast for 2010 is 3.8% (year on year) y-o-y, largely due to an increase in oil prices. We expect GDP growth to reach 5.8% in 2015. As well as higher oil prices, continuing market liberalisation should help erode structural inefficiencies and foster job creation in the private sector. Perceptions that Libya remains a pariah state continue to undermine its risk profile. Not only does this jeopardise foreign investment inflows, but it may also limit the ability of Libya's sovereign wealth fund to translate the country's burgeoning oil wealth into investments in more developed Western economies.

Friday, 7 January, 2011: The latest Libya Oil & Gas Report from BMI forecasts that the country will account for 7.56% of African regional oil demand by 2015, while providing 15.56% of supply. African regional oil use of 3.06mn barrels per day (b/d) in 2001 will rise to an estimated 3.81mn b/d in 2010. It should average 3.90mn b/d in 2011 and then rise to around 4.40mn b/d by 2015. Regional oil production was 7.93mn b/d in 2001, and will in 2010 average an estimated 10.18mn b/d. From an estimated 10.52mn b/d in 2011, it is set to rise to 12.08mn b/d by 2015. Oil exports are growing steadily, because demand growth is lagging behind the pace of supply expansion. In 2001, the region was exporting an average of 4.87mn b/d. This total rises to an estimated 6.36mn b/d in 2010 and is forecast to reach 7.68mn b/d by 2015. Angola has the greatest production growth potential, with Nigerian exports set to climb if it can resolve recent quasi-political issues. [Zawya] More

Thursday, 6 January, 2011: (AP) - The Obama administration may replace its ambassador to Libya due in part to strains in ties caused by the envoy's blunt assessment of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in confidential documents obtained by WikiLeaks, State Department officials said Wednesday. The officials said the envoy, veteran diplomat Gene Cretz, may be moved from his post in Tripoli over fears that his candid reporting of Gadhafi's eccentricities may have compromised his ability to work with Libyan officials. Cretz has held the job for more than two years. The officials said Libyan officials have expressed displeasure with the WikiLeaks revelations of Cretz's cables on the behavior of Gadhafi. But they stressed that replacing Cretz would not be punishment for the ambassador's straightforward and honest reporting. [AP] More

Near the top of his list of reasons is the prairie province's infamous winter weather. "Oh, it's just too cold," said the Libyan-born family doctor, who recently started working at the Carlton Medical Clinic on Carlton St., east of Bunting Ave., in St. Catharines. "I'll put it to you this way: look up the hottest temperature recorded on earth. That's where I am from." The sweltering 57.8°C global record was recorded in 1922 in Al'Aziziyah, Libya. So, moving from a country with that kind of heat to a province that sports winters of -30°C or colder was an uncomfortable switch. Of course, Niagara's milder winters aren't the ultimate reason why he moved. [The Standard] More

Ambassador Gene Cretz, a veteran American diplomat, authored several secret cables to Washington that speculated on longtime Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's health, and described his personal proclivities, including his reliance on a "voluptuous" Ukrainian nurse. The documents are among about 2,000 that have been publicly released from a cache of more than 250,000 State Department cables obtained by WikiLeaks. [Miami Herald] More

Tuesday, 4 January, 2011: On January 8, 1986, the Reagan administration ordered all Libyan assets in the US frozen, but its efforts to rouse international support showed Washington’s isolation. The Western European powers, led by Italy and West Germany, publicly rejected Washington’s call for severe sanctions against the regime of Muammar al-Gaddafi. They were joined by Japan, the Islamic Conference Organization, and the Soviet bloc. “Terrorism” was the overarching pretext the US used to justify its actions against Libya, including preparations for war. The Reagan administration had pinned terrorist airport bombings in Rome and Vienna two weeks earlier on Gaddafi, and held Libya responsible for “Palestinian terrorism” in general. [WSWS] More
