He joined U.C. Sampdoria during season 2006-2007, without playing a single match.Business activities
In 2006, Gaddafi and the Libyan Government launched a project to create a semi-autonomous city similar to Hong Kong in Libya, stretching 40 km between Tripoli and the Tunisian border. The proposed new city would become a high tech, banking, medical and educational center not requiring visas to enter the new city. The city would have its own international airport and a major seaport. Gaddafi promised religious tolerance with both "synagogues and churches" and no discrimination in the new city. The new city would have "Western style" business laws that he thought European and American companies would find welcoming and familiar.
Gaddafi also takes great interest in the affairs of many of Libya's other business interests like Tamoil, the oil refining and marketing company owned by the Libyan government.
In July 2010, Gaddafi was ordered by an Italian court to pay 392,000 Euros to a luxurious Ligurian hotel for an unpaid bill dating back to a month long stay in the summer of 2007.
