France's Sarkozy to face trial for influence peddling

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy will stand trial for influence peddling after the country’s highest court rejected his final bid to have the case thrown out, his lawyer said on Wednesday, ONA reports citing Reuters.

Sarkozy is accused of offering to help a prosecutor win promotion in return for leaked information about a separate inquiry. Sarkozy, who is embroiled in several criminal investigations, denies any wrongdoing.
