The French billionaire industrialist, Vincent Bolloré, has been placed under formal investigation over the corruption of foreign public officials and complicity in corruption in West Africa.
It’s alleged that a subsidiary of the Bolloré Group undercharged two African presidents – in Guinea and Togo – for work on election campaigns, in return for lucrative contracts to manage two shipping container terminals.
Mr Bolloré – who’s spent two days being questioned by police – was allowed to leave after attending court. He and his company have denied any wrongdoing.
