Carla's Hubby in the Dock

French ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy arrested over ‘receiving £42m in illegal campaign funds from dead Libyan dictator Gaddafi’
FORMER French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been arrested over accusations he received £42million in illegal campaign funding from dead Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

The 63-year-old was arrested by judicial police in Paris and taken to their headquarters in the suburb on Nanterre, local media reported.

Nicholas Sarkozi is only of interest to me because he is married to Carla Bruni, one of the most beautiful and talented women on the planet. Imagine Melania Trump with hit music. If Dos Equiis had a world's most interesting women, she would be it.
He is to be questioned as part of a probe into suspected irregularities over his election campaign financing, according to an official in the French judiciary.

The probe related to alleged Libyan funding for Sarkozy's 2007 campaign, Le Monde newspaper reported. Sarkozy is said to have received the kickbacks in 2007 during the presidential election campaign that swept him to power for a single five-year term.
This exhibits the danger in a system where the party in power uses the legal system to try to punish the other side. Like ours.
French law bans candidates from receiving cash payments above £6,300, but the massive donation is said to have been laundered through bank accounts in Panama and Switzerland.
. . .
A document made public in Paris is said to show that the French leader and the former Libyan dictator made an illegal financial deal. It was written in Arabic and signed by Mussa Kussa, Gaddafi's intelligence chief in 2006.

It refers to an "agreement in principle to support the campaign for the candidate for the presidential elections Nicolas Sarkozy for a sum equivalent to €50million (£43million)".
I don't think Nicholas is stupid enough to put a $43, let alone £43 million bribe on paper.
