Letter from former French Minister of the Interior, Claude Géant, found during the investigation into the case of Nicolas Sarkozy’s alleged illegal campaign payment from Libya. The addressee is the Russian oligarch, Sergey Chemezov. The letter proposes that Chemezov choose the optimal occasion for receiving membership of the Légion d’Honneur.
Chemezov is believed to have negotiated the selling of Mistral helicopter carriers by the French government to Russia. At the same time, Chemezov’s advisor and mayor of Nizhjni Tagil was supposed to sign a contract with Claude Gueant’s company relating to “consulting” in the interest of the French company, Veolia (on that matter, see other pieces in the TBCA); for more info:chemezov legion honneur
