As questions and speculation increases around the circumstances of Muammar Gaddafi’s demise, the Transitional Government has appointed a leading forensic investigator, who has already stated that he believes that the Colonel died of acute social mortification, rather than an instant and anonymous bullet to the head.
Speaking to Al-Jazeera television, Manwar Jobreal (also the producer behind CSI Libya and Tripoli’s version of the popular BBC quiz show, Would I lie to You?) said that he has examined the mobile phone footage and it was clear that Gaddafi was not only humiliated that he had not washed his hair, but was clearly uncomfortable that he was not in possession of his trademark wraparound sunglasses.
Jobreal believes that, “without the shades, there is obvious evidence of what we specialists call ‘tells’ – the unconscious mind’s way of showing you what it really thinks. When, during the recording, people ask him if he is Gaddafi, he is seen to repeatedly touch his nose and his eyes go up to the right – a clear sign of lying. Next we see that his face has gone a dark bloodish red – this kind of extreme ‘blushing’ proves that it is likely that our once leader most likely died from the consequences of great shame. This kind of sudden death is particular prominent in those who take a real pride in their personal appearance”.
With these findings, the Transitional Government now hopes that it will be able to kill Saif al-Islam Gaddafi by getting his mother to tell him that he has to come in now, as it's getting dark now and it’s time for his tea. Doctors are also keeping a close eye on Tony Blair and the Doctorate Award board of the LSE.
