(RFI)French police on Wednesday searched the Paris home of IMF chief Christine Lagarde in an ongoing inquiry into charges that businessman and former politician Bernard Tapie received favourable treatment in a dispute with the Crédit Lyonnais bank.

“Mme Lagarde has nothing to hide,” her lawyer, Yves Repiquet, said as the raid took place, pointing out that his client has not been questioned over the inquiry.

Police have already searched the homes of Tapie, current France Télécom boss Stéphane Richard, who used to work with Lagarde, and former interior minister Claude Guéant in the course of the investigation.
