Le Monde says investigators in the Tapie scandal believe they have proof of "organised fraud". The alleged proof centres on two letters Bernard Tapie’s lawyer sent to an arbitration judge in 2006, before the judge signed a declaration saying he had never had any note or consultation about the case. Other papers look at the ongoing Sarkothon to raise funds for the UMP and the Pope's statements about homosexuality.
