Swiss police arrests Qaddafi's son

afrol News, 17 July - Swiss police have arrested the son of Libya's Muammar al-Qaddafi after he was accused of assaulting two maids at a five-star hotel in Geneva.

Hannibal Gaddafi was accused of hitting the maids at Hotel President Wilson on Tuesday.

Swiss authorities refused to confirm or deny the arrest of the 32-year-old Libyan.

But according to Swiss media, the Libyan leader's fourth son had reportedly inflicted bodily wounds on the maids alongside his side who was spared for detention. The staff were also threatened by Hannibal's threatening behaviour.

Hannibal's bodyguards were also believed to have been detained for clashing with the arresting Swiss police.

Due to Switzerland's oil interest with Libya, it is reported that Swiss authorities want to bury the matter under the carpet instead of making it a diplomatic affair. The North African country has been the biggest supplier of oil to Switzerland.

In 2005, Hannibal was detained in Paris for allegedly assaulting his companion in a hotel. On several occasion, he was being stopped by the police for overspeeding at Avenue des Champs-Élysées, known in France as the most beautiful avenue in the world.
