rating: 0+x


September 1, 2011:

With the Gaddaffi regime in Libya now replaced by a transitional government, various world governments are starting to release money belonging to Libya that had been frozen as part of UN Sanctions.

The United Kingdom Government has freed £140M worth of Libyan currency and printed it into banknotes to be flown to Libya by the RAF in the hope of giving the economy there an injection of much needed liquid currency. This is expected to be the first tranche of around £1B to be released from accounts held in the UK.
