more about “BBC NEWS | Europe | Libya ‘halts Swis…“, posted with vodpod.

It appears Swiss police detained Ghadaffi’s son, Hannibal, and his wife because they were mistreating two people of theirstaff. So Ghadaffi Sr. has thought (does he do that?) that it was better to accuse the Swiss police, because his son hasn’t done anything like that… really.

Col Gaddafi’s government has recalled some of its diplomats from Switzerland, reduced flights between the countries, stopped processing visa requests from Swiss citizens, demanded the closure of Swiss firms in Libya and detained two Swiss citizens.

Swiss foreign minister Micheline Calmy-Rey has formally complained about the moves to her Libyan counterpart and has advised citizens not to travel to Libya.

This is shameful. What about the “dialogue”?
