Did Sarkozy accept millions from Gaddafi?

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy has lost his bid to throw out an inquiry into claims he used Libyan cash for his 2007 presidential campaign, a ruling that could require him and several associates to stand trial.

Sarkozy, 65, denies accusations by former members of Muammar Gaddafi’s leadership that he took millions from the slain Libyan ruler, some of it delivered in cash-stuffed suitcases, in his successful presidential run.

The scandal came to light in 2012, when investigative website Mediapart published a document purporting to show that Gaddafi agreed to give Sarkozy up to 50 million euros ($58 million or $67.6 million at today’s rates).

Well, would sure cause a heck of a lot more questions to arise.  Looking at politicians around the world nothing surprises me anymore

Well, according to reliable rumour that was why he was so enthusiastic about toppling him from power and subsequently murdered, wasn't it, taking care that he was killed to remove any danger that he might be put on trial when all sorts of uncomfortable things might come out.
