JOHANNESBURG: Bechir Saleh, the man known as Muammar Gaddafi’s banker, is in intensive care at a Johannesburg hospital after being shot last Friday.
South African authorities have not confirmed the attack on the man who invested more than $1 billion of Libyan oil money here.
Ahead of the Libya-African portfolio, Saleh travelled the world investing Gaddafi’s oil money for the Sovereign Wealth Fund.
He left the country after the 2011 killing of Gaddafi and briefly took shelter in France before coming to South Africa.
He’s wanted by Interpol and the French authorities.
He was attacked by five men at his Johannesburg home. One shot entered his stomach.
The motive for the attack is unknown.
