French court opens probe into Mubarak, Ben Ali
Paris: A French judicial official says the
Paris prosecutor`s office has opened two judicial inquiries
into money laundering allegations against the ousted
presidents of Egypt and Tunisia.
The official says the inquiries are not exclusively
focused on Egypt`s Honsi Mubarak or Tunisia`s Zine El Abidine
Ben Ali, thus allowing the investigating judges to examine the
deposed leaders` entourage for evidence of "money laundering
in an organised group."
The official says judicial inquiries were opened
Tuesday. She was speaking Friday on condition of anonymity, in
accordance with French judicial regulations.
Citizens` groups filed the complaints with the French
court earlier this year, after Ben Ali and Mubarak were
toppled in popular uprisings.
