Alleged ghost writer identified

Was Saif Gaddafi's LSE PhD thesis ghost-written? There seems little doubt he bought a lot of help.

The Independent:
Colonel Gaddafi's son enlisted Libyan academics to help ghost-write his thesis, according to Professor Abubakr Buera of Benghazi's Garyounis University. "I learnt that Saif gathered some PhD holders from Garyounis University in Benghazi, Libya, to help him write his doctoral dissertation. Among the people he consulted was a professor of economics who was a graduate from Germany. His name is Dr Menesi; what gives credibility to this allegation is that Dr Menesi, who was then retired, was brought back to active service as a government bank chairman in Libya, then governor to the Central Bank in Libya, then minister of finance, and finally Libya's ambassador to Austria."
According to the Austrian Foreign Ministry, Menesi is currently Libya's ambassador to Libya. He began serving as ambassador July 3, 2007 (Saif was awarded the PhD in 2007):

George Gollin, the UIUC "diploma mill" fraud from Princeton, had 15 people write his PhD dissertation for him, and nobody has done anything about that.

This will not succeed in fact, that's what I suppose.
