Arnault’s Assets Examined by Belgian Prosecutor, Tijd Says

Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- The Brussels prosecutor’s office is looking into LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA Chief Executive Officer Bernard Arnault’s network of businesses in Belgium, De Tijd and L’Echo reported, without saying where they got the information.

The inquiry, led by Walter Quirynen, head of the financial section of the prosecutor’s office, began in September in the framework of Arnault’s request for naturalization in Belgium, according to L’Echo.

The prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the reasons for the inquiry, according to the newspapers.

The investigation is a purely administrative procedure that is automatically triggered by naturalization requests, a spokesman for Arnault who asked not to be named said when contacted by Bloomberg News.
