France’s Sarkozy Owns Assets Worth $3.6 Million, AFP Says

March 24, 2012

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said he owns assets worth 2.7 million euros ($3.6 million), Agence France-Presse said, citing a report by the country’s Constitutional Court.

Sarkozy, who is running for re-election in May, said he holds no real-estate or market assets, the news service said. He declared his wealth mainly stems from two life insurance contracts, a stake in a law firm and several collections of watches, statues and autographs, AFP reported.

Sarkozy is required by law to declare his wealth before the ballot and the court has to make it public.
