Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French president, has been taken into police custody, where he is likely to be questioned within an investigation into suspected irregularities over his 2007 election campaign financing, according to local media reports.

The case is connected to accusations that Sarkozy received money from former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to fund his successful election bid in 2007, allegations he denies and has dismissed as “grotesque”.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports from Paris.

Libya is just another state bombed for bringing democracy and later to be blamed as Terrorist state. So are Grenada, Afghanistan, Iraq and many more.

I have no doubt in my mind that he Received illegal funds from Ghadaffi may he RIP

NightWaves says:

Some don't remember Libya had investments in automobile manufacturers. Italy was one and it seems there were also French investments in business. Wouldn't doubt part of the attacks to ruin Libya was to take all the investments. Good thing Qatar laughed off loaning the Trumps money. Saudi isn't as smart though trained to think money buys all.

dave goldfarp says:

If gaddafi was so great why did his own people kill him in the arab spring?He was a butcher as well..better dead and hope of freedom…………

Honor says:

Hillary and Sarkozy pushed for NATO intervention We Know why Sarkozy wanted Gaddafi Dead. Why did Hillary want Gaddafi dead? What did Gaddafi have on Hillary?

vinm300 says:

Every French president since WW2 was a corrupt collaborator.
They all had mistresses and spent lots of money : there was an unwritten
rule that the media didn't mention it.
French politicians have always been as corrupt as Italian politicians.
It is just part of the landscape.
Sarkozy's best defence would be to point to all his predecessors.

Ali & the Fox says:

That's what they do best, when they finished with you they through you under the BUS or better feed you to the dogs.

Trump campaign might be funded by Saudi Arabia. I think an investigation is vital for this.

pete b says:
