Who is Mr. Hebbadj?

Since the weekend, the French press has focused on this man whose wife was stopped by police last week for driving while wearing a full Muslim veil. It later emerged that he may have multiple wives. The Immigration Minister Brice Hortefeux says if its true, he should be stripped of his nationality. MONDAY, 26th APRIL 2010

In today’s French papers, we look at coverage of the controversy surrounding the veiled woman driver: Libération, Le Figaro.
 
Also, former French Prime Minister Edouard Balladur is in the eye of a storm. Libération says that his associates may have profited from the sale of French submarines to Pakistan in 1995. Could this money have contributed to Balladur’s 1995 Presidential campaign?
 
In Le Parisien, we look at “Fabulous Fab”, a French trader for Goldman Sachs who described as such in an internal email. This and other emails confirm that Fabrice Tourré was engaged in illicit trading similar in scale to the dodgy dealings of the the more unlucky Jérôme Kerviel of Société Générale.
