” A few days later, the letter arrived at the office. Since he was the one who decided in the end, he cut the pear in half. He said “you have to give him twenty million, for example ,” the interpreter recalls.
For French journalist Delphine Minoui who remembers an interview with the Libyan Guide, Gaddafi revealed that he had really contributed to the campaign of President Sarkozy, without giving the amount.
“The guide told him,” Well, it’s simple, you leave your contact information to Ambassador Missouri and I’ll send you the amount through Ambassador Missouri. ” The next day he told me verbally and orally from his own mouth that he had inquired and that the amount was 20 million. But I do not know if he was wrong, for example speaking in dollars or euros, I can not really be sure of the currency. “
