An inquiry into recently appointed IMF chief Christine Lagarde's actions as French finance minister won't jeopardise her position, lawyers say. The investigation, announced Thursday, will look into allegations of abuse of power.
Christine Lagarde is to be investigated in France over her involvement in a controversial legal wrangle between a top businessman and a state-owned bank. The decision to probe the former minister, made Thursday by a special court, comes after years of speculation and Socialist efforts to see her investigated.
