Breathing space for Chirac

Breathing space for Chirac

Paris - The state prosecutor will postpone a decision on whether to prosecute President Jacques Chirac over a rented flat pending a ruling on the issue by an administrative court. The court is due to decide next month whether to authorise a separate request to sue Mr Chirac for compensation over the purchase of his rented flat by a company partly owned by the city of Paris when he was the mayor.
