Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy's lawyer Thierry Herzog leaves the Bordeaux's courthouse, in southwestern France, on November 15, 2012, after meeting the investigating judges as part of the so-called Bettencourt case. The case including allegations of tax evasion and illegal campaign funding caused embarrassment to Sarkozy's government, after L'Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt's former accountant revealed that right-wing UMP party had alledgedly received illegal funding.
