Sarkozy seeks ban on publication of private conversations

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his singer-songwriter wife are asking a judge for an emergency injunction Monday, March 10, barring any publication of private conversations secretly recorded by a former aide, the Associated Press reports.

The recordings also included discussions between Sarkozy and his inner circle while he was in office in 2011, and were revealed last week in a French newspaper and website. The website has since taken down the recordings in which Carla Bruni — Sarkozy's glamorous wife — teases him about being a kept man.

Two days after the recordings were published, it emerged that French judges were also monitoring Sarkozy's conversations with his lawyer in a probe that dated to his 2007 campaign. Those recordings were made after Sarkozy left office in 2012. The Paris bar is protesting, citing attorney-client privilege.
