Event details

On August 31, 1978, he flew to Libya and was never seen again. Muammar Gaddafi was suspected of ordering his kidnapping. Pray that he is a captive and found alive, inshaAllah.

Insha'Allah, he is alive but chances are high that he died, otherwise somebody would have found him in 2011.


 Qaddafi has been accused of, including the 1988 Lockerbie bombing (he essentially confirmed the guilt of the man convicted of the crime, Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi ) and the murder of Musa Sadr, an Iranian-Lebanese cleric who disappeared in Libya in 1978. (Omar said Sadr was beaten to death after daring to challenge Qaddafi at the dictator’s home on matters of theology.) He read about these cases in the intelligence archives, he said, which were easily accessible to those working in the unit. 


Muammar Gaddafi was very notorious for making people "disappear" without a trace.^

Berri to Hariri:

"Regret is for Lebanon failure to face Libya over Imam Moussa Sadr disappearance"


January 16, 2019 - 6:51 PM News Code : 925132 Source : almanr, NNALink: 

Lebanese House Speaker, Nabih Berri, on Wednesday stressed that what should be regretted is Lebanon’s failure to face Libya over the disappearance of Imam Moussa Sadr and his comrades, and not Libya’s absence from the Beirut’s Arab economic summit as expressed by Prime Minister-designate, Saad Hariri, earlier today. 

Speaking at the Arab Private Sector Forum at Beirut’s Union of Arab Chambers today, Hariri expressed “deep regret for the absence of the Libyan delegation from this meeting.” 

Responding to Hariri, Berri issued a statement saying: “The regret, all the regret, is not for the absence of the Libyan delegation, but for the absence of the Lebanese delegation in facing the major offense committed against Lebanon for more than 4 decades.”
