Gaddafi-era official ’drowned’ in Danube
An autopsy done on Shukri Ghanem has found that the former Libyan oil minister drowned, Austrian police say.
Roman Hahslinger, police spokesman, said on Monday that the autopsy results on Ghanem’s corpse also showed there were no signs of violence.
Ghanem’s fully clothed body was found in the Danube in Vienna on Sunday, a few hundred meters from his home.
Hahslinger suggested the death may have been an accident and that Ghanem had complained to his daughter late on Saturday that he was not feeling well.
He said no suicide note has been found and there is no evidence Ghanem was under threat.
However, Vienna police and a Libyan security source suggested to the Reuters news agency that Ghanem, 69, could have been murdered.
L’ancien ministre du pétrole libyen se « noie », et la police « suggère » que peut-être il aurait pu être assassiné ? Ils sont drôlement complotistes, les flics viennois, dis-donc.
