Kadhafi son owns luxury Toronto condo: media

OTTAWA - Late Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi's son Saadi owns a Can$1.6 million ($1.5 million) luxury penthouse condominium in Toronto, Canadian media reported Friday.
The National Post said the unit had apparently gone unnoticed by Canadian and Libyan authorities following a UN order to seize the family's worldwide assets in response to Kadhafi's crackdown on dissidents earlier this year.

Saadi purchased the apartment in May 2008, around the time he reportedly made frequent visits to Toronto. Local media said the unit is not occupied but condo fees are regularly paid from a Swiss bank account.

The 38-year-old fled Libya across its southern frontier to Niger in August during the fall of Tripoli that ended his authoritarian father's 42-year regime.

He then sought to hide out in Mexico under an assumed name but the plan was thwarted by Mexican authorities.

Libya's new leadership wants Saadi to stand trial for crimes allegedly committed while heading the country's football federation.
