Hannibal's at it again (Colonel Gaddafi's playboy son)

This time in London.

The sooner this spoilt brat gets a stretch in prison, and that nutjob he's got for father is told where to get off in no uncertain terms, the better IMO.

Re: Hannibal's at it again (Colonel Gaddafi's playboy son)

Saw their pics, what a couple!!

BTW.. Why is he called "Hannibal," if anyone knows. Hope its not after that Silence of the Lambs character.

But to respond to the OP... question I would ask is, are you willing to go against the will of the "Big Oil" ?

Re: Hannibal's at it again (Colonel Gaddafi's playboy son)

"Diplomatic immunity is the biggest load of bullshit. Look what the guy has done...

Quote:
The incident is the latest violent allegation to involve Hannibal Gaddafi.
In July last year, Swiss police arrested him and his wife, then heavily pregnant, for apparently beating up their servants in a Geneva hotel. Police were called to the family's £4,000-a-night suite at Claridge's at 1.30am after hotel staff heard a woman's screams for help

The couple were charged after staff at the President Wilson Hotel - where the Gaddafis were staying as Miss Skaf prepared to give birth in a Geneva hospital - claimed they were beaten with a belt and a clothes hanger.
Two of Hannibal's bodyguards were also held after they clashed with police making the arrest.



The couple, who denied wrongdoing, were later released on bail and the complaint was dropped after the two servants received compensation from an undisclosed source. But the incident led to a long-running diplomatic stand-off, with Libya stopping oil exports to Switzerland, boycotting Swiss imports, cutting flights between the two countries and refusing visas to Swiss citizens.
The playboy, who was educated at Copenhagen Business School, has also had run-ins with the authorities in France.



Hannibal was arrested in 2005 at a Paris hotel for punching Miss Skaf, then his girlfriend, who was eight months pregnant.



He allegedly beat her after she refused to let him into a room at the Grand Hotel. Police were called when he brandished a handgun.



Mr Gaddafi then moved to another hotel where he went on the rampage, smashing furniture in a £500-a-night suite. He was later given a four-month suspended prison sentence and a £350 fine for the assault.



A year earlier, he was involved in a high-speed police chase, driving along the Champs Elysees at 90mph in his black Porsche. When stopped by police, his bodyguards attacked the officers. No charges were brought after Libyan diplomats apologised.



In 2003 he was involved in a brawl in Rome that left six photographers hospitalised and he also caused mayhem while on holiday there in 2001, hurling bottles and attacking three policemen after a night downing cocktails.
He's obviously a complete psychopath, and at the very least needs to be banned from the country if he can't be prosecuted or locked up.

God, those pics scared me.

Oh, playboys...seems like Christmas time is the time for domestic abuse (see Charlie Sheen).

Re: Hannibal's at it again (Colonel Gaddafi's playboy son)

You should see the kids at my previous school (GLION) many of them having diplomatic immunity and abusing it like crazy.

One guy stabbed a girl in the face with a broken bottle. needles to say the people and friends of the girl cared less about his status.....the police however arrested all involved but him....go figure

They should simply ban that concept except for the actual diplomat on business.

Yup I sincerely can say I hate them

Considering he's born before the movie was shot, it's rather unlikely. However "Hannibal ante portas" should ring a bell.

I'd say ban diplomatic immunity fullstop. If a diplomat can't behave and follow the laws of the land, then one has to question why they're a diplomat in the first place.

Diplomatic immunity can and has been lifted in penal offence cases (stabbing with bottles, running people over). Now as far as abusing the law of the land is concerned, the amount of pork barrel spending is by far more significant than the diplomatic parking violations et al. (that admittedly get more press...).

Perhaps the hotels should not take their bookings anymore.... (yeah Right). Lets hope that this fifth son has no aspirations to lead Libya after his father dies....

I guess I am a bit unclear on what exactly being a "diplomat" does for someone... does it give them access to anywhere they want to go?

For example, if someone is an ambassador of (whatever country) assigned to Switzerland, would they have free access to anyplace a Swiss citizen can go with their Swiss passport? OR - if someone is from a country that typically requires a Visa to visit, say, the US but is assigned to Switzerland, do they still have to get a Visa to go to the US? What about Schengen countries?


I guess what I'm asking is IS it possible to block this jerk from even entering other countries... or does whatever his "diplomatic immunity" affords him also allow him to access wherever he wants to go?

yikes

Don't ever recall hearing about anything so bad having taken place at the Ecolint in Geneva, and I was there for about 9 years amongst the many kids who lived in Geneva along with their Diplomat parents...

I did have a little bit of a brush during a ski trip with a cousin of Saddam Hussein (if I recall, I skiid a bit too close to him and probably cut him off, which pissed the poor dear off no end), but apart from the usual school yard scuffles, we never had incidents quite so bad

Most definitely not. Diplomatic "immunity" as it is referred to is the diplomatic's agent immunity to criminal, administrative and civil jurisdictions in the receiving state.

Quote:
For example, if someone is an ambassador of (whatever country) assigned to Switzerland, would they have free access to anyplace a Swiss citizen can go with their Swiss passport? OR - if someone is from a country that typically requires a Visa to visit, say, the US but is assigned to Switzerland, do they still have to get a Visa to go to the US? What about Schengen countries?
Visa requirements are entirely different from the immunity concept, and they are agreed upon in bilateral treaties between countries, where the specific visa needs are addressed - i.e. a simple passport might need a visa, but an official one not; or both may require a visa.

Quote:

It is possible to declare a diplomat "persona non grata", which basically prevents him from entering the territory of a state, or forces him to leave it immediately if he is declared so while being there.

This Hannibal must feel he is a real macho. I wonder if he dares to try hitting a man instead of a woman. I can certainly volunteer for him to try on me.

somebody with a VISA for Switzerland can travel on to all Schengen countries but neither to the UK nor to the USA.

Because Muammar al-Khaddafi admires Hannibal, the great leader of Phoenician Carthago .

Well it's good to know that apart from our 33 F/A-18C and D model Hornets and a few dated F-5s we'll have a couple of squadrons of Eurofighters (Typhoons), Tornados and E-3 AWACS coverage when the Brits join us headed south.
