The court of appeal in Versailles has ruled that the secret recordings made by L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt's butler, first revealed by Mediapart and which showed evidence of money-laundering, tax evasion, influence-peddling and improper interference in judicial procedures, are an invasion of her privacy. This is despite the fact that the tapes were ruled as admissible in the ongoing judicial investigation into the affair. Mediapart has announced it will appeal. Michel Deléan reports.
