About Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi

According to Los Angeles Times the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi had “secretly salted away more than $200 billion in bank accounts, real estate and corporate investments around the world before he was killed.” The story was repeated around the world, with various news sites reporting that Gadhafi died richer than the three richest people on the planet – Carlos Slim, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett – combined. This means, prior to his death, he was by far the richest person in the world. Currently, he has an estimated net worth of $70 billion.

His forty-two year reign was subject of much controversy and internal unrest. As of February 2011, political unrest within the country boiled over into full-scale violence, largely perpetrated by the military against civilian protesters. Gaddafi was forced out of office and eventually killed by rebel forces.
