Nicolas Sarkozy, former French Prez may relocate to London to set up a billion pound investment fund to escape a 75% tax in his home country. Sarkozy and his former supermodel third wife Carla Bruni Sarkozy are likely to settle in an affluent place like South Kensington. But the former President is under investigation for corruption in his home country and if he does cross the channel, there is going to be outrage.
The investigative site Mediapart reports that the ‘first draft’ of Sarkozy’s plan was found by detectives examining his computer files. Sarkozy is facing probes in many funding scandals, including the one linked to arms sales to Pakistan, and another one in which he has been accused of using taxpayers’ money to finance opinion polls while he was in chair.
