Nicolas Sarkozy under investigation: a political vendetta?
This week, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy spent a whole day answering questions from an investigating magistrate, who then placed him under investigation for taking advantage of France's richest woman. The judge suspects Sarkozy obtained illegal financing from the elderly L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt for his 2007 presidential campaign.
