Illegal receipt of election donations.
Good that he's not somehow immune though - restores one's faith a little.
I thought it was because he ruined Libya
He is just in custody, for allegedly illegally taking Libyan money in order to finance his 2007 campaign.
11 years later? No statute of limitation? Money from a dead man.
The investigation started in 2012, his associates have already been in custody multiple times and I'm pretty sure that he did too.
Initiated under Hollande? If so, its slippery slope to go after the digressions of former presidents.
It had nothing to do with Hollande. It's a complicated story that starts around 2005-06, the justice investigated strange money movements around Sarkozy from 2006 to 2011, the main targets were Guéant and Takiedine. The later in 2011, has been caught smuggling 1.5m€ from Libya, in 2012 he told to a judge that he had proof of dubious links between Sarkozy and Libya since he was the intermediary, from that point the justice has been focused on Sarkozy.
Life won't be sar cosy for him from here on out.
Sounds like the makings of a good movie.
