Nicholas Sarkozy has been questioned by a judge over allegations that he received envelopes stuffed with cash to fund his successful 2007 election campaign.
The donations are said to have come from the L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt, the richest woman in France. The former president was also questioned over allegations that he and his supporters took advantage of the 90-year-old billionaire's frail state of mind, and that he used his presidential power to hamper criminal investigations into the scandal.
Sarkozy, who lost his immunity from prosecution when he failed to secure a second term in office in May, has denied any wrongdoing.
