Former French President Sarkozy Home, Office Raided By Police

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Things in broke Europe are becoming stranger by the minute. Stepping away from the Bank of England telling private institutions what to do, and overriding fiduciary responsibility, we now shift to France, but not in the context of the Second Great Socialist Revolution and its Fairness Doctrine annex, but to the home and office of ex-president Nicholas Sarkozy whose home and office where just raided according to Politique in connection with long-running allegations that his presidential campaign had been illegally funded by France's richest woman Lilliane Bettencourt. Do you see what happens Larry when there are no PACs and it is illegal for rich people to outright bribe politicians?

Google translated:

Officers from the financial police and the justice of Bordeaux Jean-Michel Gentil raided, Tuesday, July 3 in the morning, the home of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Villa Montmorency in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, the law firm Arnaud, Claude and associates, in which Nicolas Sarkozy holds units, located 53, boulevard Malesherbes (17th) and its new premises at its disposal as a former head of state, located 27 rue de Miromesnil.

 

Judge Gentile, condemned for abuse of weakness and illegal campaign financing, investigate possible remittances by Liliane Bettencourt the former head of state, including during his 2007 presidential campaign.

 

Nicolas Sarkozy, whose presidential immunity ended June 16, is implicated in two ways: by Claire Thibout, the former accountant of Bettencourt, a sum of 150,000 euros would have been delivered in early 2007 to Eric Woerth, treasurer at the time of the presidential campaign of Mr. Sarkozy. In addition, several testimonies collected by justice make state visits during the 2007 campaign, Mr. Sarkozy made ??by the homes of Bettencourt, whose purpose would be discounts for cash.

They will raid the Rothschild's home when there is blood in the streets. (The Rothschilds will be out buying property, unfortunately.)

Can we possibly have officers from the financial police and the justice of Bordeaux Jean-Michel Gentil roll up to Wall Street and perp walk Jamie and the other bankster CEO's down to Federal Court in Manhatten and indict them for criminal fraud, depraved indifference, and whatever else charges we can tie around these sociopaths' necks?  Then take Amtrac down to DC and kick Eric Holders sorry ass out of Justice and take over start criminal investigations of the entire banking industry and start sending a LOT of people to jail.

On their back to France they can make quick stops by the CFTC and SEC and pad lock the doors after rousting the SEC porn addicts away from their screens and sending them home to surf on their own time.

That is not true. To say that is to say that Satan/Lucifer (Fallen Angel, Annunanki or whatever otherworldly being whose time it is on earth), PRINCE(ipal) for the Rothschilds, has not had influence in the last century. His influence is rampant and growing... while we are led to believe (propagandized) he does not exist... and hence led to believe the Rothschilds do not exist.

At the core, the Rothschilds own all of the global banks pretty much lock, stock and barrel. They also own all of the exchanges through their entities and also own all of the mechanisms of control through their entities ... Do you think you own one single share of stock? Ha! Unless you have the piece of paper in your hand, it is owned by the DTCC (MERS for stocks shares) and you are simply the beneficiary. Do you think you own the land you live on? Ha! You are just the tenant and owe property taxes (rents) to the owner, which tracks back to the Rothschilds. You do not own it.

The ONLY questions are how, when and why this will resolve itsolve. Not that it eventually will or will not.

Point of clarification, I wrote in Perot and will write in Ron Paul this time around.  I consider both products of the GOP.  We all know there is only one party, for the banks and financial houses, by the banks and financial houses.

I'm not the one defending socialism while pretending not to be a socialist...you are. By the way, in case you haven't figured it out, Ross Perot was in on the game too. His job was to syphon off votes from a fairly popular sitting president. There is know way that a republican president could have pushed through NAFTA. They needed a democrat to get that past the American people. So Perot stayed in the race but acted crazy enough not to win the election and Clinton won with 43% of the vote. And that is how we got NAFTA.

you've got a couple more steps to go,

Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance

but once you make it past "anger" you're that much closer to the realisation that this reality that pisses you off so has been in place since before you were even born. . .

once you make it to accepting that truth, you are free of choosing "sides" within the system, and can side with yourself and trusted others outside the manipulation of the herd.

Lilliane Bettencourt is of doubtful mental health so do some Wikipedia....

In June 2010 during the Bettencourt affair, Bettencourt became embroiled in a high-level French political scandal after other details of the tape recordings made by her butler became public. The tapes allegedly picked up conversations between Bettencourt and her financial adviser, Patrice de Maistre, which indicate that Bettencourt may have avoided paying taxes by keeping a substantial amount of cash in undeclared Swiss bank accounts. The tapes also allegedly captured a conversation between Bettencourt and Éric Wœrth, who was soliciting a job for his wife managing Bettencourt’s wealth, while he was acting as budget minister and running a high-profile campaign to catch wealthy tax evaders.[24] Moreover, Bettencourt received a €30 million tax rebate while Woerth was budget minister.[25]

In July 2010, the scandal appeared to widen after Bettencourt’s former accountant, Claire Thibout, alleged in an interview with the French investigative web-site Mediapart, that conservative French politicians were frequently given envelopes stuffed with cash at the Bettencourt’s mansion in Neuilly-sur-Seine. She alleged that Woerth, while acting as treasurer for the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), was given an envelope containing €150,000 in cash in March 2007 towards the presidential campaign of Nicolas Sarkozy. She also made, then retracted, a claim that Sarkozy was a frequent visitor to the Bettencourt’s home while he was mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine from 1983 to 2002 and received envelopes containing cash. A few days later, she affirmed to receive pressure from the French police in order to retract her testimony about Nicolas Sarkozy's illegal cash.[26] Mr Sarkozy and Mr Woerth both deny wrongdoing.[24][27][28] Following these allegations, French police raided the home and office of de Maistre, who heads Clymène, the company owned by Bettencourt to manage her wealth.[29] Political donations are limited to €7,500 for political parties and €4,600 for individuals. Contributions above €150 must be paid by cheque with the donor clearly identified.

By most accounts, Liliane Bettencourt met François-Marie Banier, a French writer, artist and celebrity photographer, in 1987 when he was commissioned to photograph her for the French magazine Egoiste.[2][13][14] Over the ensuing years, Banier and Bettencourt became friends and she became his chief benefactor, bestowing gifts upon him estimated to be worth as much as €1.3 billion. These gifts include, amongst other things, a life insurance policy worth €253 million in 2003, another life insurance policy worth €262 million in 2006,[15] 11 works of art in 2001 valued at €20 million, including paintings by Picasso, Matisse, Mondrian, Delaunay and Léger, a photograph by surrealist Man Ray,[2][16] and cash. The life insurance policies were allegedly signed over to Banier after Bettencourt was recovering from two hospital stays in 2003 and 2006.[14]

In December 2007, just a month after the death of her father, Françoise Bettencourt Meyers lodged a criminal complaint against Banier, accusing him of abus de faiblesse (or the exploitation of a physical or psychological weakness for personal gain) over Bettencourt.[17] As a result of her complaint, the Brigade Financière, the financial investigative arm of the French national police, opened an investigation and, after interviewing members of Bettencourt’s staff, determined to present the case to a court in Nanterre for trial in September 2009.[14] In December 2009, the court delayed ruling on the case until April 2010 (later extended until July 2010) pending the results of a medical examination of Bettencourt’s mental state.[14] However, Bettencourt refused to submit to these examinations.[18]

In July 2010, the trial was adjourned again until autumn 2010, at the earliest, after details of tape recordings made by Bettencourt’s butler, Pascal Bonnefoy, became public. The tapes allegedly reveal that Bettencourt had made Banier her “sole heir,” excluding the L'Oréal shares which make up the bulk of Bettencourt’s estate and which have already been signed over to her daughter and two grandsons.[19]

On 6 December 2010, Bettencourt reconciled with her daughter, ending a series of lawsuits. It is reported that Bettencourt and Banier had separated, and he was eventually written out of Bettencourt's will.[20] However, the spat reignited over the summer when Mrs Bettencourt said her daughter needed to seek psychological help.[21] A re-estrangement resulted.[21]

Guardianship

On June 8, 2011, it was reported daughter Meyers filed an application with the court to make Bettencourt a ward of the state for her health and being incapable of the management of her fortune .[22]

On 17 October 2011 a French judge ruled that she is to be placed under the guardianship of members of her family on concerns about Mrs Bettencourt's declining mental health. Francoise Bettencourt-Meyers, who, along with two grandsons, will now control her wealth and property.[21] Another grandson was named as her personal guardian.[21] Liliane Bettencourt's lawyer said he would appeal, and told Le Monde newspaper that "Mrs. Bettencourt was ready for 'nuclear war' with her daughter." [21] The court's ruling will remain in place pending the appeals process

Bribes are illegal in France? They actually enforce the law? How odd.

Sarkozy has lost his presidential immunity as of June 15. He is under investigation for political contribution tampering involving the Bettencourt family, the richest lady in france and a campaign suporter in 2007 and again in 2012. The investigation which led to him got put on the back burner in 2011/ Now its surging forward again. This is like Watergate type investigation if Nixon had not stepped down but had been pursued after his terminal time in White House. This is a good sign for democracy. It shows that the justice continues to work on a file that was blocked by his finance minister back then.

Has anyone heard about Benjamin Fulford ?

 

 

He’s been saying for some time that “NWO cabal” control is being dismantled slowly and many people are being arrested.

I’m not sure if this guy is genuine or if he is doing propaganda or disinformation but what he says is very interesting.

"While in office, President Sarkozy was immune from prosecution"

Replace: "president/PM" with "CEO" and "office" with "bank" for USA comparison. 

Except, unlike presidents, you can't vote out CEOs

how odd that no one has mentioned M. Desmarais. it was his brother in law who acted as bagman between bettancourt and sarko.bettancourt is not considered (by the court) capable of managing her own affairs.

it was M. D's companies who were given the go ahead to permit Gaz de France to merge with Suez (a M. D company), thus creating the one of the largest liquified gas companies in the world, after sarko's election. it was M. D's yacht on which sarko spent his post election, pre inauguration holiday in '07. sarko's brother is employed by Carlyle (one of largest owners of military suppliers and partner of M.D's Power corp), and M. D sits on the advisory board of CITIC china's largest arms manufacturer.

a minor trifle.

a small matter

a tiny misunderstanding

a micro event

sarkozy like napoleon tony blair and the bush clan are all leaders of men.

the natural born killer elite.

when the tough get going the going gets 

you can fool all the people all the time then killum when they are asleep.

sarkozy needed gadaffi's millions because he has expensive tastes.

he has a micro circumcised pen us as the french say dat is why wifey smokes pole away from home.

 

yo blair,the trillion dollar bush tuckers sometins got a give.

i think distraction events needed real soon in 3 2 1
