Saif Gaddafi, plagiarist?

Is there no end to the crimes of that regime?

The London School of Economics has confirmed it is investigating allegations that Colonel Gaddafi’s son plagiarised his PhD thesis.

Saif al-Islam studied at the LSE from 2003 to 2008, gaining both a Master of Science degree and a doctorate.

But allegations have emerged that he used a ghost writer, and copied sections of his thesis.

On a more serious note, the LSE accepted a hefty donation from Gaddafi in 2009. That blood money is rightly sparking student protests now.
