In 2011 Mohamed Gaddafeddam bin Nail became one of the most high profile Libyans to speak out against the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
He called on the people of Libya to rally around the revolutionary forces, as they attempted to topple the Gaddafi regime.
A member of one of Libya's most important and renowned families and a member of the same tribe as Gaddafi, he had a $25mn price tag placed on his head by the dictator, whose son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi took to Al Jazeera to call on their shared tribe to turn against Gaddafeddam.
His own family – including his father, a close ally of Gaddafi – disowned him on Libyan television.
Gaddafeddam then disappeared from the public eye, disheartened by the way in which the revolution unfolded.
Now, in an exclusive interview with IBTimes UK, he reveals that with Libya on the brink of collapse, he is ready to return to the political sphere.
