The fight for transparency during French presidential elections continues

On Sunday, 12 September, lawyer Robert Bourgi alleged that African leaders gave briefcases full of money to Jacques Chirac and Dominique de Villepin, intended for France’s 2002 election campaign. TI France is calling for Robert Bourgi’s allegations to be investigated as swiftly as possible. William Bourdon, TI France’s lawyer, added that Mr. Bourgi seems to be a credible witness of very serious events.

The campaign aims to lay the foundations for a new political culture founded on the equality of all before the law. It urges the presidential candidates to commit to 7 key propositions in the area of corruption.
