Paris, April 5 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Apr, 2021 ) :Paris prosecutors said on Monday they have opened an investigation into gang robbery after former French minister and scandal-ridden tycoon Bernard Tapie, once the owner of Adidas, was attacked alongwith his wife during a midnight burglary of their home.
" His wife Dominique Tapie managed to free herself and made her way to a neighbour's home, from where she called the police. Slightly injured from several blows to the face, she was taken to hospital for a check-up.
Tapie himself, who is 78 and his fighting cancer, received a blow to the head with a club but declined to be taken to hospital.
The burglars made off with two watches, including a Rolex, earrings, bracelets and a ring, according to a source close to the investigation.
Last autumn, Tapie's fraud trial was postponed for reasons of ill health. It is due to resume in May, with Tapie "determined" to be present, according to his lawyer.
