Vincent Bolloré charged with corruption

Vincent Bolloré, a famous French name in the world of transport, has been given preliminary charges in an investigation into alleged corruption surrounding port deals in Africa.

The Bolloré Group is one of France’s largest business empires with interests in transport, media and oil. The group have said it will now “answer these unfounded accusations”.
