A Munich-based newspaper reported that a member of the West German Parliament from the ecological Greens party has links to a Libyan-financed foundation. Party leaders said they will investigate the allegations. Sueddeutsche Zeitung said Alfred Mechtersheimer is involved with the M.A.G. Foundation for Peace and Solidarity based in Vaduz, Liechstenstein. It said the foundation was financed by a $10-million account set up in Switzerland by Libyan leader Col. Moammar Kadafi. Mechtersheimer was quoted by the newspaper as saying he acted “as a kind of adviser” to the foundation, which was set up to promote the “new thinking” in Libya.
