The official says Judge Jean-Michel Gentil and other investigators from the Paris financial crimes unit conducted the search. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be publicly named discussing an ongoing investigation.

The probe centers on the finances of France's richest woman, L'Oreal cosmetics heiress Lilliane Bettencourt.

Socialists always use the power of the state to destroy their enemies once they are in office.

The French Socialists won and need cash fast. The Evil Rich in the US better expect such treatment if BO wins a second term, unfettered by the prospects of re-election.

Amazing that it took 5 years for them to begin this crap. I guess when the socialists are in power, it’s time to try to destroy the predecessor. This looks bad for Hollande because it’s coming so soon on the heels of his election.
