France drops corruption probe into son of Senegal's ex-leader

Karim Wade, the son of Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade, on March 8, 2008 in DakarFrench prosecutors have dropped a corruption investigation into the flamboyant son of former Senegalese president Abdoulaye Wade, his lawyers said Tuesday, weeks before he stands trial in his own country. Karim Wade is suspected of having corruptly acquired a multi-million-dollar fortune while his father was in power and is due to be tried in Senegal next month. Senegalese authorities had also lodged an official complaint in France in 2012 in the belief that part of Wade’s alleged $242 million (179 million euro) fortune may have been invested in the country. French prosecutors dropped their probe for lack of sufficient proof, his lawyers said.
