Nicolas Sarkozy to be investigated over secrecy breach in Karachi affair
French ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy is to be investigated over accusations of a breach of secrecy in an alleged corruption case, the “Karachi affair”, agency AFP reports.
Nicolas Sarkozy’s office had said in 2011 that the president was not named in any of the case documents.
Plaintiffs in the case say that was a violation of confidentiality.
The long-running investigation stems from the death of 11 French engineers in a bombing in Pakistan in 2002, which may have been linked to French bribes.
