Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is said to have built in the desert sand a hiding place for its gold reserves. That is suggested statements of his former intelligence chief. The exact location is puzzling.

In Libya, the report caused a stir – especially since there is currently no specific information concerning the place where the gold is stored.
Gaddafi’s former intelligence chief Abdullah Senussi, who had been delivered in early September from Mauritania to Libya is said to have supplied information during interrogations at the treasure.
Senussi have emphasized, however, only some former officers and one of Gaddafi’s sons knew where encamped the gold leaf on to tell. For the storage of gold bullion specifically a vault was built.
Created during the time of the first sanctions
Senussi said, according to the newspaper, Gaddafi had created the gold reserves during the period when the United States, the EU and the United Nations sanctions against Libya had decided because of the support of terrorism.
The UN sanctions were imposed 1992nd 2003, they were canceled. Gaddafi was captured in October 2011 and killed by rebels.
