Claims that Colonel Gaddafi agreed to finance the campaign that saw Nicolas Sarkozy become French President have rocked his hopes of keeping the job.

The conservative leader’s camp has dismissed the accusations surrouding his 2007 election victory as a ‘diversion.’

But left-wing political website Mediapart alleges the late Libyan leader’s regime said it would provide 50 million euros for Sarkozy. The French site says it has evidence in a document in Arabic signed by a senior Libyan official after a meeting with a trusted Sarkozy ally.

A spokesman for his Socialist challenger Francois Hollande, widely expected to win next Sunday’s election, wants explanations.

In an exclusive interview with EuroNews last year, Muammar Gaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam claimed Libya financed Sarkozy’s campaign.
