Gang fraud

The French judiciary has opened an investigation into singer Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The wife of the former president is accused of influencing witnesses and participating in a criminal organization.

The aim was gang fraud, it is said. This involves alleged election campaign funds from Libya. A witness had accused Nicolas Sarkozy of having financed his 2007 election campaign with money from Libyan ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi.

The proceedings against the singer's husband have been ongoing since October 2023. A Franco-Lebanese middleman had told the court that he had handed over suitcases full of cash from Gaddafi's coffers to Sarkozy in 2006 and 2007.

But not suitcases full of money?
Later, however, he surprisingly retracted his statements. Sarkozy and his PR advisor are said to have tried to bribe witnesses. His wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was also heard as a witness. Investigators eventually noticed that she had deleted all the messages she had exchanged with the former French president's PR advisor - at the very time when the judiciary initiated proceedings against Sarkozy.

As a result, she herself became a target. The investigation was opened on Tuesday. With the exception of her husband, Bruni-Sarkozy is no longer allowed to have any contact with those accused in the election campaign affair.

Sarkozy was originally due to spend a year behind bars without parole, but successfully appealed against the sentence. In the end, he did not have to go to prison.
