Muammar Gaddafi’s cousin, Ahmed Gaddafi ad-Dam, said the project on the creation of the African currency was one of the main causes of the intervention in Libya and the assassination of the former leader of the country.
“That was one of the main causes. The West saw how Gaddafi was leading the struggle for the liberation of the African continent and the expulsion of the colonial countries from Africa. He wanted the unity of African countries to transform the continent into the United States of Africa, “Gaddafi ad-Dam told RT.
According to the cousin of the former Libyan leader, in 1999 Muammar Gaddafi launched debates on the creation of an African union and a united African government in order to bring together the continent’s capacities. Such a policy did not contradict the interests of Western countries. That is why they called Muammar Gaddafi a threat. He added that the UN should “open an investigation into the events in Libya”.
“Everyone thinks that the murder of Gaddafi is a war crime, imputed to the West. We must demand that the UN and its new Secretary General open an investigation into the events of 2011. For five years the Security Council has not even sent a commission, “he said.
The unrest in Libya degenerated into civil war in early 2011. In March 2011, the UN Security Council authorized an intervention to protect civilians from forces loyal to Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi. The bombing of Libyan territory was carried out both by the coalition forces led by the United States and by states like France or Great Britain. After French strikes on the automotive column in which Gaddafi was, he was captured and murdered by the rebels.
