Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy in police custody over campaign financing

Richard Hartley-Parkinson

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy is in police custody over allegations relating to campaign financing.

He is being questioned by police in relation to financing from Libya

by the then Gaddafi government. In 2011, Sarkozy waged a regime change war against Libya; which led to the murder of Gaddafi (said to be instigated by Sarkozy), and much more bloodshed in Libya and other countries which still continues now. Sarkozy waged that regime change war for French Big Oil profits. Maybe also to destroy evidence of illegal Gaddafi financing of his election campaign.

during the 2007 presidential campaign which he won, according to Le Monde.

He is being held as part of an ongoing investigation over campaign financing, according to a court source.

He was summoned to a police station in Nanterre where he is being questioned over the allegations.

The inquiry was opened in April 2013 but it is the first time Sarkozy has been questioned in the inquiry.

It comes several weeks after a former associate, Alexandre Djouhri, was arrested in London and later released on bail.

He can be held by police for up to 48 hours before facing magistrates.

This is a breaking news story and is being updated with more information as we get it.

  1. FRANCE: Former President Nicolas Sarkozy was questioned by police for a second day yesterday over allegations he took up to €50 million in illegal presidential campaign funding in 2007 from late Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi.

    After spending the night at home in Paris, he returned to a police station in Nanterre to be questioned by anti-corruption police officers.

    The legal campaign funding limit then was €21m. In addition, the payments would violate rules against foreign finance and the open declaration of campaign funds.
