Sarkozy Libya financing scandal now involves Lebanese judges

The French judiciary has charged three French citizens with attempting to bribe Lebanese judges in one of the files related to the probe into Libya's financing of Nicolas Sarkozy's 2007 presidential campaign.

The French judiciary suspects that the three tried to collect money and pay it to Lebanese mediators with the aim of delivering the sums to judicial officials in Lebanon.

According to French judges, the ultimate objective was to "hold meetings with Mommar Gadhafi's son Hannibal Gadhafi and then to release him from jail and imprison (French-Lebanese mediator) Ziad Takieddine."
