Khaled Hamedi



CHF 1,311,163

The son of one of a group of officers led by Muammar Gaddafi that overthrew Libya’s monarchy and took power in 1969.

Hamedi is president of the ​​International Organization for Peace, Care and Relief, which the UNHCR once described in press releases as its “main partner in Libya on ensuring protection for refugees and asylum-seekers.” In regional media, he has also been an outspoken defender of Gaddafi and his father, el-Khweldi el-Hamedi, who have both been accused of human rights abuses and large-scale corruption.

Hamedi’s father’s rank in the Libyan military, his close relationship to Gaddafi, and his alleged role in the bloody crackdown on protests, raised the ire of NATO.

King Abdulla II Bin al Hussein and Queen Rania Al Abdullah



CHF 230,278,386

Jordan’s monarch since 1999, the authoritarian King Abdullah II has used wide-ranging executive powers to crack down on free speech and political opposition following accusations of corruption at home.

Last year’s Pandora Papers investigation revealed how the monarch funneled US$100 million through secret companies to buy luxury real estate in the U.K. and U.S. Abdullah’s wife, Queen Rania, also held an account with at least 39.1 million Swiss francs.

The royal family’s lawyers said the “relevant accounts are used for the acquisition of assets, investments, operational and personal expenses and general disbursements, including the funding of certain royal initiatives” and that the king and queen “have never extracted, in any manner, funds from the Treasury, public assets, international assistance or government budget to accounts situated abroad or for his personal enrichment.”
