A French secret serviceman acting on the  express orders of Nicolas Sarkozy is suspected of murdering Colonel Gaddafi, it  was sensationally claimed today.

He is said to have infiltrated a violent mob  mutilating the captured Libyan dictator last year and shot him in the  head.

The motive, according to well-placed sources  in the North African country, was to stop Gaddafi being interrogated about his  highly suspicious links with Sarkozy, who was President of France at the  time.

There are still pockets of support for former leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime in Libya, despite his deathNicolas Sarkozy, France's former president

Other former western leaders, including ex  British Prime Minister Tony Blair, were also extremely close to Gaddafi,  visiting him regularly and helping to facilitate multi-million pounds business  deals.

Sarkozy, who once welcomed Gaddafi as a  ‘brother leader’ during a state visit to Paris, was said to have received  millions from the Libyan despot to fund his election campaign in  2007.

The conspiracy theory will be of huge concern  to Britain which sent RAF jet to bomb Libya last year with the sole intention of  ‘saving civilian lives’.

A United Nations mandate which sanctioned the  attack expressly stated that the western allies could not interfere in the  internal politics of the country.

Instead the almost daily bombing runs ended  with Gaddafi’s overthrow, while both French and British military ‘advisors’ were  said to have assisted on the ground.

Now Mahmoud Jibril, who served as interim  Prime Minister following Gaddafi’s overthrow, told Egyptian TV: ‘It was a  foreign agent who mixed with the revolutionary brigades to kill Gaddafi.’

Gaddafi was killed on October 20 in a final assault on his hometown Sirte by fighters of the new regime, who said they had cornered the ousted despot in a sewage pipe waving a golden gun. The moment was captured on video

Diplomatic sources in Tripoli, the Libyan  capital, meanwhile suggested to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra that  a foreign assassin was likely to have been French.

The paper writes: ‘Since the beginning of  NATO support for the revolution, strongly backed by the government of Nicolas  Sarkozy, Gaddafi openly threatened to reveal details of his relationship with  the former president of France, including the millions of dollars paid to  finance his candidacy at the 2007 elections.’

One Tripoli source said: ‘Sarkozy had every  reason to try to silence the Colonel and as quickly as possible.’

The view is supported by information gathered  by investigaters in Benghazi, Libya’s second city and the place where the ‘Arab  Spring’ revolution against Gaddafi started in early 2011.

Rami El Obeidi, the former head of foreign  relations for the Libyan transitional council, said he knew that Gaddafi had  been tracked through his satellite telecommunications system as he talked to  Bashar Al-Assad, the Syrian dictator.

Nato experts were able to trace the  communicatiosn traffic between the two Arab leaders, and so pinpoint Gaddafi to  the city of Sirte, where he was murdered on October 20 2011.

Nato jets shot up Gaddafi’s convoy, before  rebels on the ground dragged Gaddafi from a drain where he was hiding and then  subjected him to a violent attack which was videod.

In another sinister twist to the story, a  22-year-old who was among the group which attacked Gaddafi and who frequently  brandished the gun said to have killed him, died in Paris last  Monday.

Ben Omran Shaaban was said to have been  beaten up himself by Gaddafi loyalists in July, before being shot twice.He was  flown to France for treatment, but died of his injuries in hospital.

Sarkozy, who lost the presidential election  in May, has continually denied receiving money from Gaddafi.

Today he was unavailable for comment, but is  facing a number of enquiries into alleged financial irregularities
