French Labour Minister Eric Woerth has repeated he would not resign because of a deepening political scandal in which he and President Nicolas Sarkozy are accused of receiving illegal campaign contributions from France’s richest woman.
French Labour Minister Eric Woerth said Tuesday he would not give into what he called a political conspiracy that is being organised against the government of President Nicolas Sarkozy by tendering his resignation, during an interview with TF1 television.
“I never touched a single euro and I am shocked. This woman who accuses me and accuses the president, I’ve never met her,” insisted Woerth.
