Chirac's trial will be held between 5th and September 23

The Paris Criminal Court decided Monday that the trial of former French President Jacques Chirac for alleged corruption takes place within the next 5 and 23 September. The Court met to fix the dates on which held that trial, in which the former head of state is accused of an alleged crime of illegal financing of parties through the recruitment fictional people when he was mayor of Paris.

Initially scheduled for last March, the process was suspended the day after its opening, after the lawyers for some of the defendants filed a motion for constitutionality. The French Supreme Court rejected on May 20 that resource, which was based on the statute of limitations, considering that the issue raised by the defendants was not "new" or had "a serious nature." Chirac is accused of an alleged corruption in two different processes.
