Sarkozy Says Judicial Charges Aimed at ‘Humiliating’ Him

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy said the influence peddling charges against him are aimed at “humiliating” and “defaming” him.

In his first interview since his defeat in the 2012 presidential election, conducted by reporters of TF1 television and Europe 1 radio today, Sarkozy denied any wrongdoing and said the judicial process against him was evidence of the “political instrumentalization” of the French justice system.
