Woerth: "I am the target of a mad man-hunt"

In today’s French press review, we look at the Woerth-Bettencourt scandal that’s back in the spotlight. A senior French prosecutor is expected to review an official report that cleared the French labour minister last July. Eric Woerth is accused of playing a role in a tax scandal involving the L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt. Woerth denies the allegations.

 

Libération: “Is the socialist party back in the game?”
 
Le Figaro: “Martine Aubry is insolent”
 
Le Parisien: “Woerth has no lessons to learn from opponents who have no sense of morale”
 
Libération: “Zombi ID in Haiti”
 
Aujourd’hui en France: “Student accommodation from hell”
