Ring Trying to Smuggle In Gadhafi Son Dismantled in Mexico

Wednesday, December 7, 2011 |

A ring that was trying to smuggle Saadi Gadhafi, the son of late Libyan dictator Col. Moammar Gadhafi, and his family into Mexico has been dismantled, officials said Wednesday.



Four suspects – two Mexicans, a Canadian and a Dane – involved in the scheme were arrested during “Operation Guest,” Government Secretary Alejandro Poire said.

The suspects were trying to provide 38-year-old Saadi Gadhafi and his family with false Mexican identification documents under the names Daniel Bejar Hanan, Amira Nayed Nader, Moad Bejar Sayed and Sofia Bejar Sayed, Poire said.

The plan called for the Libyan businessman to acquire properties in different parts of Mexico and establish his residence in Bahia de Banderas, a Pacific coastal town in Nayarit state.

The suspects were identified as Cynthia Ann Ranier, a Canadian who is allegedly the gang’s leader and ran its finances; Gabriela Davila Huerta, a Mexican living in the United States who also used the alias Gabriela Davila del Cueto, served as the “logistics link” and contacted the document forgers; and Pierre Christian Fleisborg, a Danish national who was in charge of logistics.

The fourth suspect was identified as Jose Luis Kennedy Prieto, a Mexican citizen who was in charge of obtaining the false documents.

Ranier was arrested on Nov. 10 in Mexico City, while the other suspects were detained a day later.

The suspects are all in preventive detention, allowing prosecutors to hold them for 40 days while they gather more evidence in the case.

The criminal organization chartered several flights between Mexico, the United States, Canada, Kosovo and various Middle Eastern countries “to coordinate the route and prepare the logistics for Gadhafi’s move,” Poire said.

The suspects face forgery, people trafficking, bank fraud and organized crime charges.

Saadi Gadhafi, who was born in 1973, commanded the Libyan special forces and is known for his love of soccer.

He was a professional soccer player but made it into only two Italian League matches before being penalized for doping.

Gadhafi, who crossed into Niger in September and requested asylum, is accused of being behind the killing of a 1980s Libyan soccer star.

An arrest order was issued for Gadhafi by Interpol on Sept. 29 at the request of Libya’s National Transitional Council, which accuses him of taking properties via force or intimidation while serving as head of the Libyan Soccer Federation.

Preventing Gadhafi from entering Mexico is “another demonstration of the capacity of the Mexican state’s institutions for protecting the integrity of national territory,” Poire said.

Foreign Relations Secretary Patricia Espinosa, who is visiting Brazil, praised the successful police operation.

“This is a matter we had been working on for some time and we are very happy that the plan was detected in an efficient manner and we prevented the entry of this person into Mexico,” Espinosa said during a press conference in Sao Paulo with her Brazilian counterpart, Antonio Patriota.

Why to stop him to enter Mexico? Maybe he can start the Gadhafi Cartel and wipe out the others.

Anonymous said...

I don't see why he can't go anywhere. What crimes has he been found guilty of. People can hate his father and say oh what a bad guy, but at least in recent years he was manageable and willing to work with the world community. One thing all those billions of dollars and man stuck to his word and would not back down until he was slaughtered like an animal by savage Islamic radicals who now are the ones holding the guns thanks to my stupid government who thinks freedom and democracy is a one size fits all. Time will prove what a mess we are in now in Egypt, Libya etc.

There's a difference from stopping immigration and stopping emigration... and this guy is known internationally, the 'scum-bags' you mention are not.

This is very unlikely, I strongly believe that the United Stated provided the tip. Which makes Mr Poire's declaration null and highlights the US shadow over Mexico.

There has to be a good reason why he decided for Mexico? Maybe they used to sell weapons to one of these groups? I find it hard to believe that all of a sudden he said "Mexico"! Especially considering the proximity with the US.

@12:39pm how do you know that none of them were communist. Let's put it the other way: Then why almost 90% of Americans believe that every Mexican coming into the USA is a drug dealer.

Because they are, the other 1% is either scratching his ass, burping chorizo, or gettin your daughter pregnant.

I don't believe a word of this nonsensical fantasy. Pure and utter BS. I can only guess that Kim Kardashian is now in charge of all in the Mexican intelligence community, and that this is not a win, but a seriously shameful fail.

Is there anything Mexicans won't do for a dollar??

The people that came to America in the Mayflower did not bring anything good with them. They brought VD (la purgacion) and the black pox. They even did not believe in showering every day. So when they came they infected everything.

@6:58 According to BB post of Thurs 12/8/11 Torreon has a "thriving retail drug market". The cartels don't care where they sell their shit and they're selling it like crazy in Mexico. Meth is especially popular and the most lucrative.

12/08 6:58PM,
LOL..first of all numb nuts, maybe you should go back and learn your history! The "white man" didn't invent slavery asshole, the Africans did. Whenever a conquering tribe took over a village they basically enslaved the ones they didn't kill or sold them to, as slaves, to the Europeans! Basically, the Africans sold their own people! The ancient Aztecs of Mexico did the same shit...sold their own people into slavery, amongst themselves... So fuck you! As far as US having a drug problem..huh..Mexico has one too dipshit, where do you think all these cartel members are coming from? The difference is the US isn't fucking torturing, dismembering, and leaving the body parts on the streets. BTW, the logic in your comment makes zero cents...your justifying the violence in Mexico (the killings, greed, and corruption) on the US demand for drugs? So in essence what your saying is Mexico has no sense of "right or wrong," no ethical or moral standards, its all about opportunities...

The reason this issue will never be solved is because of racism. Just read some of the comments that have been posted. Dumb and ignorant people in this world. Both sides have equal blame on all this BS. We need to stop all this dumb "MY RACE YOUR RACE CRAP!!!" you are the reason we are still in this mess.
