A Spanish judge has opened an inquiry to determine if Spanish companies were involved with supplying nuclear equipment to Libya, The Independent reported.
An ardent and vocal opponent of terrorism, Judge Baltazar Garzon dispatched a team of investigators to London to work with British intelligence on the possible links.
Garzon first became interested last summer when Spanish intelligence officers uncovered exports of machinery and equipment supposedly destined for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
However, the trade ministry insists no Spanish company is suspected of supplying centrifuges that could be used for the enrichment of uranium "either to Libya or any other country from which there is any risk of it being diverted to another destination."
