According to Reuters, Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French President, has been taken to police custody and is being questioned about Libyan funding for his 2007 election campaign.

Judicial inquiry into the allegations that Sarkozy benefited from funds from Muammar Gaddafi was opened back in 2013.

Sarkozy served as French president between 2007 and 2012, and has always denied receiving any illicit campaign funds from the late Libyan leader.

The claim is that Gadhafi’s regime secretly gave the former president 50 million euros for the campaign while the legal campaign funding limit in France was 21 million euros.

Sarkozy's lawyer hasn't made any comments about the matter yet.
