Shortly after French Socialists swept into power, they launched a full-scale criminal investigation against Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French president. Police raided his home and office in recent days.

Russia Today reports that, “police officers have carried aout a number of raids in Paris – on the villa Nicolas Sarkozy shares with his wife Carla Bruni, on the law offices of the former president’s attorneys and on the apartment provided to him by the government.”

Judge Jean-Michele Gentil and financial cops searched the Sarkozy’s villa that is located in Paris’ most luxurious district, the offices of Arnaud, Claude and Associates in which Sarkozy is a shareholder and an apartment granted to the former president by the government.

According to Russia Today, “the raids are reportedly linked to a campaign finance corruption scandal involving billionaire L’Oreal heiress Lilian Bettencourt. Bettencourt, France’s richest woman is alleged to have illegally contributed two payments of 400,000 euros each to Mr. Sarkozy’s 2007 election campaign, despite the fact the legal limit on individual donations being 4,600 Euro.”

Sarkozy faces allegations that he used the campaign contributions to provide tax breaks to the cosmetics magnate.
