French judges tapped Sarkozy phone calls over Libya
Sarkozy’s call with his lawyer Thierry Herzog was reportedly tapped
French judges tapped the phone calls of former President Nicolas Sarkozy as part of a probe into allegations former Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi helped finance his 2007 election campaign, a French daily reported Friday.
Judicial sources told AFP that a recorded call between Sarkozy and his lawyer Thierry Herzog was the basis for an investigation opened last week into a suspected attempt to influence the outcome of ongoing court proceedings in another corruption case.
