Oh , and remember, the Nation of Islam’s anti-American, black separatist and anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan thought of Gadaffi as a brother. This is the same guy who constantly rails against the ‘white US’ and “profiteering” Jews for their role in the slave trade, and nothing about Islam’s more extensive role in the slave trade, which carries on till this day in many Muslim countries.
Qaddafi ally ‘kept slaves’ at French country home
A Gaddafi loyalist is going on trial in the French town of Bourg-en-Bresse for allegedly keeping several African employees as modern slaves in her home in France. “We were always on duty with my mistress. If I was ill, I still had to work,” says an employee known as Lyiya in an account given to the Cimade, an advocacy group which defends the rights of migrant workers, 20minutes.fr reports.
Lyiya worked for Kafa Bashir, the wife of a Libyan official who worked as head of cabinet for leader Muammar Gaddafi. Bashir is accused of exploiting four Tanzanian employees in her country house in the French department of l’Ain from 2008 to 2009.
French radio Europe 1 reports that the investigation into Bashir started when one of her employees, a worker from Niger, escaped in 2005. He was picked up by the border police and reportedly told them he escaped inhumane working conditions. He alleged Bashir confiscated his identification papers and forced him to work round the clock.
Bashir will not be present at the trial that opens on Wednesday and risks a seven-year prison sentence and a fine of €200,000.
