British ambassador to US denies he helped Saif Gaddafi with PhD In a statement, a Foreign Office spokesman said: ''Sir Nigel Sheinwald did meet Saif Gaddafi during the time he was studying at the LSE, and was therefore aware that he was preparing a thesis. ''But Sir Nigel had absolutely no role in the writing of any part of the thesis, made no suggestions about it to Saif Gaddafi or anyone else, and suggested no changes.'' Last month Sir Howard Davies resigned from his post of director at the LSE over the university's links to the Gaddafi family. He said the decision to accept £300,000 funding from the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation (GICDF) in 2009, had ''backfired'' and expressed regret that he had visited Libya to advise the regime about how it could modernise its financial institutions. The LSE council has commissioned an independent inquiry into the university's relationship with Libya and with Saif Gaddafi.
