Show me the money: France's politicians reveal their assets
As part of President François Hollande's push for transparency and honesty in French politics, his government has forced all ministers and junior ministers to declare their wealth and assets in full by April 15th. Others outside the cabinet, including some politicians from the opposition, have joined in the act. Find out what secrets France's elected officials have been keeping.
It's fair to say that French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius is loaded. He declared around six million euros worth of assets including a €2.75 million home in Paris. He is however in debt to HSBC to the tune of €30,000 so the minister might be advised to watch the pennies this month.
