A top aide to former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi said Monday he fears arrest if he returns to Libya over what he may know about corruption allegations against France's ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy and Gadhafi's alleged financial support to the former France leader. Moftah Missouri, Gadhafi's chief interpreter and also his adviser since 1996, told the Associated Press that he attended a meeting in 2005 between France's then-Interior Minister Sarkozy and Gadhafi.Gadhafi offered to step down but remain in Libya, Missouri said.There was no answer from Sarkozy, Missouri said.As France's president from 2007 to 2012, Sarkozy put France in the forefront of the NATO-led airstrikes against Gadhafi's troops that helped rebel fighters topple Gadhafi's regime in 2011 .
