Bettencourt scandal: Sarkozy denounces political 'slander'

6th July 2010, Comments 0 comments

French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Tuesday rejected allegations that he and his party treasurer received illegal campaign donations, branding them political smears.

"I would love it so much if the country could excite itself over the big problems ... rather than to get wrapped up in the first horror, a slander with only one goal, to smear with no basis in reality," he said.
