A French court on Friday ordered a news website to remove the recordings of secretly-taped conversations involving Nicolas Sarkozy when he was president, in what has become known as the "Sarkoleaks" scandal.Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni, who is also heard in some of the private conversations, launched legal action last week after extracts of the tapes secretly recorded by the former leader's then political advisor Patrick Buisson were published on news site Atlantico.Just a few days after the private conversations were published, Le Monde daily revealed that Sarkozy was suspected of attempting to pervert the course of justice by trying to obtain secret information about a court case from a friendly judge.
