France has launched a judicial inquiry into claims that Franco-Swiss cement giant LafargeHolcim indirectly funded Daesh (ISIS) in Syria in order to keep a plant running in a war zone there, prosecutors said Tuesday.In September, the French government filed a legal complaint against Lafarge for buying oil in sanctions-hit Syria to power its Jalabiya plant.The plant was finally evacuated in 2014 and closed down before Lafarge merged with its Swiss competitor Holcim in 2015 .In November, 11 former Lafarge employees filed complaints against the company, along with French anti-corruption group Sherpa and a German-based rights group.
