The Lebanese and Libyan authorities are coordinating attempts to pursue personalities that were close to Libya’s ex-leader Moammar Gadhafi through the Interpol to unveil the fate of missing Imam Moussa al-Sadr, An Nahar daily reported Friday.
The newspaper said that the dead Libyan dictator's spymaster, Abdullah Senoussi, is at the top of the list of the wanted personalities for his knowledge in al-Sadr’s case.
Senoussi, who was detained last month in Mauritania, is wanted by France as well as by the International Criminal Court.
Most of al-Sadr’s followers are convinced that Gadhafi ordered the imam killed when he flew to Tripoli along with two companions in 1978.
Libya had insisted the Shiite cleric and his companions left Tripoli on a flight to Rome and suggested he was a victim of a power struggle among Shiites.
Libyan government spokesman Nasser al-Maneh told al-Jazeera Arab TV network on Wednesday that forensic doctors are carrying out DNA tests on human remains unearthed from a cemetery in Libya believed to be that of the missing Imam.
He said the remains were taken to a hospital in Tripoli for tests.
But Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour, who arrived in Beirut from a visit to Tripoli on Wednesday, denied the report.
