Jacques Vergès did not abuse Libya (Erratum)

+

In a recent brief, we mentioned the role that the lawyers Jacques Vergès and Roland Dumas played in Libya [1].

The family and a friend of Mr. Vergès pointed out to us that he did not receive the money given to him by Libya’s Minister of Finance, in provision of the expenses and fees owed to him for the recovery of the 300 millions euros worth of Libyan assets held illegally by France.

The receipt of the transaction, that Thierry Meyssan was able to access, being the Coordinator of the Temporary Technical Committee, was worth 4 million euros and was signed by Roland Dumas. 2 other millions were supposed to follow. Contacted by mail, Mr. Dumas did not care to respond to our request for an explanation.

We present our excuses to the family and friend of Mr. Jacques Vergès for having suspected him of this breach of trust.
