The son of slain Libyan colonel tried to enter Canada, but could not. The same thing was going to do in Mexico. There are detainees.Once, Mexico was overthrown tyrants shelter. As Mohamed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, which in early 1979 lodged in the spring always Cuernavaca, less than an hour from the capital, after being ousted by the revolution that led Ayatollah Khomeini from Paris . Yesterday, Saadi Gaddafi, the third son of the deposed and murdered Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, not only failed to enter the country but who have been arrested all those who in one way or another tried to smuggle his wife and two children .The story gives to a spy movie. The plot is complex. There are spies, police, conspirators, drugs, prostitutes and money, much money. The incident occurred in the United States, Canada, Kosovo, several countries in the Middle East ... and Mexico. The whole case is known as Operation Guest.According to the administration of
However, according to another version, the rightist government of Felipe Calderon had considered the possibility of accommodating Khadafi and his family. Gary Peters, president of the Canadian company Can / Aust International Security and Investigations, said that he personally was involved in the operation and had visited the mansion in which Saadi live in a resort in Punta Mita, Nayarit, on the coast northwestern Mexico (see box). According to statements he made to the Canadian newspaper National Post, "the operation had the approval of the Mexican government."According to Peters, Khadafi would have tried to seek asylum in Canada, claiming that Libyan rebels overthrew and killed his father were committing "atrocities and war crimes." An associate of Peters, Cinthia Vanier, Khadafi papers dealt with the Canadian government, which did not allow the application to prosper. Today, Cynthia Vanier is being held in Mexico along with three others, two Mexicans and a Dane. The son of the deposed leader even got to travel several times to Montreal and Toronto. Peters himself was responsible for hiring security forces to protect it. According to Canadian newspaper, Khadafi's bodyguards "were alarmed by his appetite for drugs and prostitutes." They have been contacted bodyguards to protect Khadafi and his family in Punta Mita, but they refused, said Peters.

In March, Interpol issued an alert against Saadi and other family members Khadafi, while the UN froze its assets.According to Interior Minister Alejandro Poire, the September 6 "Mexican civil intelligence detected a plan" for illegal confinement Saadi Gaddafi and his family to Mexico. "In this situation, the Mexican state institutions proceeded in accordance with the protocols and procedures for, and their ability and timely response, managed to avoid this risk, dismantled a criminal organization with an international dimension to this offense intended to operate and obtained the roots of the alleged perpetrators, "he said Poire.Mexican authorities dismantled the "conspiracy" between 10 and Nov. 11 last. The detainees are as "embedded", ie, they are still subject to criminal prosecution but is in custody for investigation. The government can have them in legal limbo for 40 days, without opening any criminal case.The contrast with the story of Mohamed Reza Pahlavi is notorious. The Shah of Iran lived in Mexico City for 122 days, at his sister, Princess Shams. It was 1979, times were different. Today, Saadi Gaddafi is "in custody" in Niger, said the Mexican interior minister, then presumably the alleged intelligence capabilities of the Research Center for National Security.
