Who Gets to Keep Saadi Gadhafi's $16 Million House in London?

Monday, December 19, 2011

A $16 million house on London's "Millionaire Row" could be the first Gadhafi family asset in the UK to be returned to the Libyan government. The luxury property with more than a half-dozen bedrooms and an indoor swimming pool is currently occupied by a group of squatters from an organization called Topple the Tyrants, but attorneys have discovered that it is actually belongs to Saadi Gadhafi, a son of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi. 

Now, lawyers acting for the Libyan embassy asked the London High Court to transfer ownership of the house on 7 Winnington Close over to the Libyan government.

Mohamed Sheban is one of the attorneys working to track down the Gadhafi family's British assets.
