Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy charged again with irregular financing

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been charged with an association of criminals in relation to the alleged illegal financing of the electoral campaign that led him to the Elíseo in 2007, sources from the National Financial Prosecutor's Office informed EFE this Friday.

This is Sarkozy's fourth indictment for allegedly receiving funds from the Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi for that campaign, as he had previously been indicted for passive corruption, misappropriated public funds and irregular financing of an electoral campaign.

Sarkozy, president between 2007-2012 and now 65 years old, has been indicted after this week he testified for four days before the investigating court investigating the case.

The former chief executive has reacted to the accusation on social networks with surprise, defending his innocence, and admitting that he feels "stupefied."
