France 3 TV channel published an interview with the late leader of Libya. If you believe the words of Gaddafi he sponsored the presidential campaign of Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007
Two years ago, in the spring of 2012, the French edition Mediapart published the documents, which said that the Libyan regime allegedly spent € 50 million on Sarkozy when he ran for the leaders of France. President denied it, of course, and filed a lawsuit against the publication.
Interview published today, is an audio recording from March 16, 2011, that is just a few days after France officially recognized the Libyan opposition. Voice Gaddafi said that Sarkozy appealed to him for help when he was Minister of the Interior.
“Sarkozy – retarded … only thanks to me, he became president … We gave him the tools that helped him win” – referring to France 24.
It should be noted that immediately after the victory of Sarkozy relations between France and Libya were very friendly, at the end of 2007, the President even took Gaddafi at the Elysee Palace. However, Nicolas and Muammar quickly cooled to each other and in 2011 Paris uprising backed opponents Jamahiriya. France was one of the initiators of military operations in Libya. As a result, October 20, 2011 Gaddafi was killed by rebels.
