Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy arrived at a Paris court Tuesday in connection with a long-running scandal over his 2012 campaign finances, an AFP journalist reported.Campaign spending limits were fixed at 22.5 million euros ($25 million), and Bygmalion is accused of charging some 18.5 million euros to Sarkozy's party -- then called the UMP, but since renamed The Republicans -- instead of charging the money to the campaign.Since then, however, the investigation has widened beyond Bygmalion and is looking into a further 13.5 million euros in campaign spending by the UMP, of which only 3.0 million was declared at the time.
