The Spanish and Swiss foreign ministers held talks with government in Libya on Sunday to arrange the return of Swiss businessman Max Goeldi, Reuters reported.

Goeldi served four months in a Libyan prison and was released last week but has still not been allowed to leave Libya since July 2008.

Libya arrested Goeldi in retaliation for the arrests of Libyan leaders Muammar Gaddafi's son, Hannibal Ghaddafi, in Geneva for the alleged abuse of two household employees.  The charges against the younger Gaddafi were eventually dropped.
