Naharnet - Sadr Still Alive, Held Captive by Gadhafi: Sadr's Son - August 31, 2010

Imam Moussa Sadr, who disappeared during a visit to Libya 32 years ago, was still alive and being held captive by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, his son Sadreddine Sadr said Monday.
"Imam Sadr, Sheikh Mohammed Yaaqoub and jounalist Abbas Badreddine are still alive and are being held captive in the hands of Gadhafi," Sadreddine said in an interview published Monday by state-run National News Agency.
He said Gadhafi had claimed that the three men traveled to Rome "but Italian judicial authorities and Lebanese investigations and a lot of other information have proved that they did not leave Libya."

Sadreddine said Gadhafi had during the past 24 years insisted that Sadr and his two companions left for Italy.

But on Aug. 31, 2002, Sadreddine recalled, Gadhafi admitted that Sadr and his companions "entered Libya at the invitation of government officials and disappeared there."

Sadreddine put the blame on Lebanese judicial authorities for negligence in his father's case.

"I am far from politics, but our duty is to liberate them first so that we can carry on the march," Sadreddine told NNA. "Secondly, we have to walk in the footsteps of the Imam."
