In the first case brought by civil society in France, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the son of the president of Equatorial Guinea, is on trial for corruption.
A landmark case against corruption and nepotism will go to trial in France, a decade after the complaints were filed.
President Obiang is one of three African leaders whose assets in France are under investigation, the result of years of activism and a landmark legal decision allowing Transparency International France and Sherpa to start judicial proceedings, a precedent that could be replicated all over the world.
