BBC News – Gaddafi London home taken over by squatters

 

 

The group would not say how it got into the property or how many people were inside.

When you get inside you realise it is full of huge rooms and all the trappings of his status”

In a statement it added: “We didn’t trust the British government to properly seize the Gaddafi regime’s corrupt assets, so we took matters into our own hands.

“In the meantime we want to welcome refugees from the conflict in Libya and those fleeing tyranny and oppression across the world.

“We stand in solidarity with the Libyan people.”

The eight-bedroom, Georgian-style house with swimming-pool and sauna had recently been put on the market for more than £10.9m. It was withdrawn from sale last month.

Describing the house, Mr Jones said: “It looks relatively nondescript from the outside but when you get inside you realise it is full of huge rooms and all the trappings of his status.

“It’s palatial, it’s got five storeys, it is full of marble and glass and other expensive materials. It’s got a flat-screen TV in almost every room.”

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said it was called to reports of unknown people entering an address in Hampstead Garden Suburb at approximately 1250 GMT.

“At this time this is being treated as a civil matter. There have been no arrests. Police are monitoring the situation,” she said.
