Le Monde: 'Phone-tapped Nicolas Sarkozy threatened by new scandal'
Issued on: Modified:
Not just one, but two legal quagmires for former French President Nicolas Sarkozy this week. Le Monde this Friday reported that two judges have been tapping his phones in a bid to find out more about allegations Libyan money could have been used in campaign financing. The "Sarkoleaks" scandal earlier this week, meanwhile, revealed some of Sarkozy's conversations with a political advisor. Both throw his political comeback into doubt.
