Swiss businessman Max Goeldi will leave Libya on Sunday for home, three days after being freed from a Libyan jail for visa offences, Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey told reporters.

She also said that Libya and Switzerland have signed an "action plan" to solve a bitter diplomatic row that saw Goeldi stuck in the North African nation since the spat broke out in July 2008.

Spain, which holds the current presidency of the European Union, also signed the agreement, said Calmy-Rey who arrived late on Saturday in Libya with her Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos aiming to secure Goeldi's release.
