Chirac accused of paying off hostage takers

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whiteflag anyone, or just an imaginative walt:D
  2. Well, it is plausible I suppose. Italy paid for their hostages to be released in Iraq.
  3. Considering the amount of money Chirac & co have siphoned off over the years into various accounts (I wouldn't be surprised if there's a special Department for them) why not one more - at least this one was to help people escape almost certain death, unlike the normal run of secret funds... (the £500 a pair shoe fund- R.Dumas/the Hooker fund-anyone involved with Elf/the mistress & bastard fund-Mitterand...could go on for hours!)

    It will be no better when the Sarkozy family are running the show. They are as crafty as a barrel load of monkeys and are "old money" so they will be even more creative in their dealings whilst appearing considerably less slimy.
  5. But there IS no more Sarkozy family - Mrs took off with a very eurotrash-suave looking individual, leaving the amphetemine dwarf on his own... Dominique de V might just get the upper hand in the next elections - lets face it the V Republic has never had a pocket president & DDV is slightly the taller of the 2.
    Off hand I'd say the socialists are the bigger thieves on the whole anyway (but maybe that's my natural prejudice).
    Are we sure that the UK has NEVER paid for hostages to be released?

    Oh yes there is, his brother Guillaume Sarkozy, who is looking for something to do with his time since his textile weaving business went belly up a coupleof years ago. It is interesting that shortly after Nicholas backed the challenger against Chirac his little brother's business, which had always lead a charmed life by weaving textiles for embassies, apartments of the influential, the seat fabric for Air France and other state funded organisations, suddenly found the order book halved and went into rapid terminal decline.
