RCMP to investigate Gadhafi son’s $1.6-million Toronto condo

The RCMP is to investigate a condo in Toronto, allegedly owned by Saadi Gaddafi, the son of late Moammar Gadhafi. The orders came directly from the federal government.

The $1.6-million luxury condo atop the Harbor View Estates building on the Toronto waterfront comes with a view of Lake Ontario and access to a 25-metre swimming pool, squash, basketball and tennis courts and a bowling alley.

38-year-old Saadi Gaddafi, once a professional soccer player and later a businessman, was never as zealously involved in his father’s regime as his brother, Saif Al-Islam.

On March 17, United Nations ordered to freeze all the assets (including property and banks accounts) of Gadhafi’s family. UN describes him as a commander of “military units involved in the repression of demonstrations.” Moreover, since Saadi is on the wanted list, it gives the federal government more of a reason to conduct the search.

Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird allegedly confirmed that the case has now been forwarded to the RCMP for investigation. A final verdict on whether the property will be seized will be given by the Justice Department.

Apparently, Gadhafi was planning to flee to Canada after the revolution in Libya started, but his North American security chief Gary Peters allegedly warned him that he would be detained upon arrival.
