Kadafi’s Son Convicted of Hitting Companion
A French court convicted a son of Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi for striking his pregnant companion in a Paris hotel, giving him a four-month suspended prison sentence and fining him $628, the Paris prosecutor’s office said.
Hannibal Kadafi was not in court for the verdict, which found him guilty of assault and illegal possession of a pistol.
On Feb. 1, Kadafi brandished an automatic pistol while at Le Grand Hotel InterContinental in Paris. The Foreign Ministry said in February that France had expressed “displeasure” to authorities in Libya about “repeated incidents” involving Hannibal Kadafi.
