flosse - senate refuses second immunity waiver

. . .


Gérard Davet

French Senator Gaston Flosse was to have been called before investigating judge Philippe Stelmach Friday, 18 September 2009, "to be heard and indicted," said an attorney in Tahiti, José Thurel.

On Tuesday, 15 September, the office of the Senate refused to rule on a new application for waiver of parliamentary immunity for Mr Flosse, 78 years.

Investigators have yet to find evidence of "corrupt dealings".

Flosse, a former President of French Polynesia, already cited in another investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jean-Pascal Couraud, is suspected of benefiting from 10 years of payments from former officials of the Office des Postes et Télécommunications (OPT ), and the 2H group, responsible for advertising the official phone directory of Polynesia.
