A Frenchwoman jailed in Mexico in 2007 for 60 years for kidnapping is to be freed, the Supreme Court has decided.

Florence Cassez had denied the charges and many irregularities have been found in the case, including a staged televised police raid.

Three judges on a panel of five voted to have Ms Cassez released immediately because her rights had been violated.

The case provoked tensions between Mexico and France, where news of her impending release was widely welcomed.

Ms Cassez’s mother, Charlotte, told French television the case had been full of suspense right to the end. “It’s an explosion of joy. I can’t quite believe it,” she said.

In a statement, President Francois Hollande said the decision marked the end of a “particularly painful period”.

“France thanks all those who, in Mexico as well as here at home, have fought so that truth and justice prevail.”

Sharp criticism

Florence Cassez was arrested in 2005 at a ranch near Mexico City where several hostages were found, but denied knowledge of the kidnappings, in which her former boyfriend was involved.

The decision to release her has been sharply criticised by one of the hostages, Ezequiel Elizalde, BBC Mexico correspondent Will Grant says.

Mr Elizalde testified against Ms Cassez and has condemned the Supreme Court’s decision as “disgusting”, describing Mexico’s institutions as “filth”.

This was the second time that the Supreme Court had taken a vote on freeing Ms Cassez.

Last March, however, the judges decided against her release, despite acknowledging serious irregularities in the process.

When first convicted, she was jailed for 96 years, But, in 2009, a court of appeal reduced the term to 60 years.

French authorities tried to extradite her, but the move was blocked by the Mexican government.

Mr Hollande’s predecessor in the Elysee Palace, Nicolas Sarkozy, championed the case and repeatedly clashed with the Mexican government of then-President Felipe Calderon.

Diplomatic tensions reached a peak two years ago when Mexican authorities cancelled a high-profile cultural event in Paris.

Romance is in the air again for Mary-Kate Olsen.

According to Us, the actress-turned-fashion designer is dating Olivier Sarkozy, who is the brother of the former French president, Nicholas Sarkozy. An insider tells Us, “It’s true, they’re dating, and she’s definitely interested in him.”

There is a 17 year age difference between the Frenchman, who is 42 and Olsen, who is 25. A source suggests she is comfortable with the age-gap.

“MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her,” a friend says. “She got the kids out of her system. Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed with guys.”

The New York Post quotes a source as saying Olsen and Sarkozy are “head over heels.”

File:Jean-Marc Ayrault - mars 2012.jpg

Tuesday May 15, 2012           10:54am EDT

French President Francois Hollande named veteran Socialist parliamentary leader and Germany-expert Jean-Marc Ayrault as prime minister on Tuesday, an appointment which may help smooth negotiations with Berlin on tempering austerity in Europe.

The appointment of Ayrault, a former German teacher and long-time Hollande ally, was announced by the new president’s chief of staff.

The Socialist Hollande, who was sworn into office earlier on Tuesday, was already on his way to the airport for his first meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

Ayrault has led the Socialists’ parliamentary group since 1997, earning a reputation for pragmatism which may serve the French government well as it seeks to reshape the Paris-Berlin axis.

The 62-year-old is now charged with forming a cabinet which will be unveiled in full on Wednesday.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird calls a nuclear-armed Iran 'unfathomable.'

May 7, 2012            6:42 PM ET

Iran could build a nuclear bomb within months if it decides to weaponize its atomic enrichment program, according to Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird.

In an interview with CBC’s Power & Politics host Evan Solomon, Baird said he doesn’t believe Iran has made that decision yet — but warned the country could move “very quickly” once it does.

“When they’re enriching uranium to 20 per cent, when they’ve got the volume of materials.… When you’re putting all the ingredients in front of you, it obviously wouldn’t take long to make the decision to do it,” he said.

“They’re certainly moving to be able to be in that position, then they could certainly dash to the end which could be done in as few as nine or as many as 18 months.”

Baird called the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran “unfathomable,” and said it would inevitably lead to nuclear proliferation right across the region, which the minister said is a concern for the entire planet.

“The real concern is what would it do to security in the region,” he said. “And frankly, Arab states are just as concerned as Israel is with a nuclear-armed Iran…you also look at the potential for proliferation — other countries wanting to acquire nuclear weapons to protect themselves from the threat of Iran.”

Baird’s comments come as the United States and Europe urged Iran to use upcoming talks with world powers to defuse concerns it has plans to develop nuclear arms — concerns Tehran insists are based on “fake evidence” created to cause the country economic harm.

While international talks are working to persuade Iran to end its nuclear ambitions, Baird said it remains a huge challenge to “de-escalate” the situation.

“I’m skeptical of Iran’s willingness to engage in meaningful discussions on this, but let’s take them at their word and let’s go through this diplomatic exercise and hope for the best,” he said.

“Obviously President [Barack] Obama has said all options are on the table and we’re watching the situation very closely and offering our full support to the diplomatic initiative.”

“All options” means that nothing is off the table — including a pre-emptive strike against Iran, Baird said. But Canada’s position remains to explore and exhaust all diplomatic efforts, he added.

Baird also commented on the dramatic power shifts in Greece and France, where voters rejected candidates pushing austerity measures. In France, Socialist François Holland ousted conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy with a platform of moving from austerity to restoring growth.

“Obviously when the economy is sour, governments tend to get defeated,” he said. “Obviously, the situation in Greece is very, very different. Obviously there’s some tough medicine that’s required and sometimes the patient doesn’t like it.”

Ms Trierweiler, the partner of Mr Hollande, has become the first unmarried 'Premier Dame' in French history

05:49 EST          7 May 2012

From a former supermodel with a reputation for partying with rock stars to a twice-divorced mother the French vote for president will see more than just economic policies change.

Valerie Trierweiler, 47, the partner of Mr Hollande, will become the first unmarried ‘Première Dame’ in history to enter the Elysee Palace on the arm of the country’s most powerful man.

The feisty magazine journalist was revealed as Mr Hollande’s lover when he separated from the mother of his four children, the politician Segolene Royal, with whom he lived for 30 years.

She had gained the nickname ‘Rottweiler’ after she slapped a colleague on Paris Match who said something she deemed sexist.

When the magazine put her on its cover under the headline ‘Francois Hollande’s charming asset’, she tweeted: ‘Bravo Paris Match for its sexism … my thoughts go out to all angry women.’

But despite her reputation, she has said that she intends to be more low key than her predecessor Carla Bruni.

‘I will stay among those accompanying,’ she said in an interview before the election. ‘I will bend to protocol. But it will be for me to find my place. First Lady is not something I’ve ever dreamed of. What I’m scared of is losing my liberty.

‘I am not seeking notoriety and I am not seeking to grab the limelight.’

She has also voiced concerns at the prospect of losing her independence because of her partner’s new role – and so it seems a wedding is probably the last thing on the to-do list for the new power couple.

But as Hollande, 57, looks to build on his victory over Sarkozy with his anti-austerity reforms, it seems inevitable the French public will also begin to wonder if he will do the decent thing and propose.

Trierweiler says she and Hollande first met 23 years ago when she was a political reporter. He was married with a family, but otherwise leading a fairly routine existence.

Hollande makes much of his roots in Rouen, the dull Normandy city that reflects his desired provincial image as the hard-working son of a doctor father and social worker mother.

In reality, his family lived in the upmarket Bois-Guillaume ‘heights’ of Rouen — until forced to move as a result of his father Georges’s extreme Right-wing politics.

Georges was exposed as a close supporter of a former Vichy official who stood for president in a campaign managed by Jean-Marie Le Pen, later infamous as the Holocaust-denying founder of the Front National.

The ripples from this revelation led Georges to sell the family home and his clinic in 1968, when his son was 14. He retrained as an estate agent and moved to Neuilly-sur-Seine, the Parisian suburb that is Sarkozy’s fiefdom.

The move was so rapid his father binned his young son’s childhood possessions, including a cherished collection of toy cars.

Such a background left its mark. His biographer Raffy traces Hollande’s dislike of confrontation, his desire to compromise and his self-deflecting humour back to a childhood need to avoid his father’s anger and the brutal corporal punishment meted out at his strict school.

‘Contrary to what his detractors believe, the man is neither cunning nor cynical,’ wrote Raffy. ‘He is simply in a posture of avoidance.’

He was, however, very close to his mother, Nicole, who stood as a Socialist candidate in Cannes in 2008. She died the following year, and Hollande has told friends he will dedicate his victory to her if he wins.

After moving to Paris, the preppy Neuilly-sur-Seine Lycee propelled the hard-working teenager into the École Nationale d’Administration (ENA), which churns out the elite cliques dominating French politics, business and society.

In 1974, he spent the summer in the U.S. after winning a business school grant, driving from New York to San Francisco as Richard Nixon’s presidency crumbled amid the Watergate scandal.

He studied the invention of fast food, concentrating on McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken, those symbols of globalisation — and concluded they would invade France, too.

‘I could have made a fortune in cheeseburgers,’ he once told the New York Times. ‘But I finally chose politics.

Ousted: Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni leave the Elysee Palace, the official residence of the president, after his election defeatOusted: Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni leave the Elysee Palace, the official residence of the president, after his election defeat

It was while he was at the ENA that Hollande fell for Ségolène Royal, a young radical. They met at a student party and remained together for 30 years.

After they both became advisers to the Socialist President Francois Mitterrand in the early Eighties, Hollande became an MP in south-central France and rose to become head of the region.

In 1995, Hollande was appointed Socialist Party spokesman and, two years later, elected head of the party, a position he held for 11 years.

Grappling with the inflated egos and vicious factionalism of so-called comrades, he was viewed as someone who ducked difficult decisions and led from behind. ‘He is Mr Conciliator, Mr Compromise, Mr Consensus,’ said one old friend. With his pudgy features and portly frame, he was mocked by television satirists as ‘Flanby’ (a brand of caramel pudding) and Marshmallow Man.

Then came the blow of the 2007 presidential election. Despite his position as party chief, he failed to win the nomination and had to suffer the ignominy of his long-time partner Ségolène Royal seizing the crown in his place, only to lose against Sarkozy.

First Lady is not something I’ve ever dreamed of. What I’m scared of is losing my liberty.

Months later, Royal announced their separation; they had actually split the year before, since Hollande was having an affair with Trierweiler, a journalist on the magazine Paris Match.

The twice-divorced Trierweiler once slapped a colleague who said something she deemed sexist. When her own magazine put her on its cover under the headline ‘Francois Hollande’s charming asset’, she tweeted: ‘Bravo Paris Match for its sexism . . . my thoughts go out to all angry women.’

Royal and Hollande are no longer on good terms — unsurprisingly, since he calls his new partner ‘the love of his life’ in interviews. ‘Can anyone recall anything Francois Hollande has done in 30 years?’ Royal asked bitterly at one point, though she has since grudgingly backed him.

With the help of The Rottweiler, this campaign saw the emergence of a new Hollande.

He lost weight, sharpened his suits and ditched his old-fashioned horn-rimmed glasses. He started to mimic the mannerisms, the talk, even the walk of his hero Mitterrand.

Last year the eternal backroom boy was almost a joke, with just three per cent support in the polls. ‘Can you imagine Francois Hollande as president of the republic?’ said Laurent Fabius, a former Socialist prime minister. ‘You must be joking.’

Then came the downfall of the party favourite, the sexually incontinent Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and Hollande seized the moment he had been preparing for all his life, seeing off five rivals, including Royal.

The defining day came in January, in his first big rally, when he declared his desire to ‘reinvent the French dream’ to 15,000 ecstatic Socialists. His forceful oratory and fierce attack on capitalism took even his biggest fans by surprise.

‘My real adversary has no name, no face, no party,’ he thundered. ‘It will never be elected, yet it governs — the adversary is the world of finance.’

The racy rhetoric was backed by an old-fashioned Socialist programme of higher public spending and hefty taxes on businesses and the rich.

Last night David Cameron, who snubbed Mr Hollande during a recent visit to the UK, phoned the new president to congratulate him on his victory.

A Downing Street spokesman said: ‘They both look forward to working very closely together in the future and building on the very close relationship that already exists between the UK and France.’
Labour leader Ed Miliband, who met Mr Hollande during his London visit, also sent his congratulations.

‘This new leadership is sorely needed as Europe seeks to escape from austerity, and it matters to Britain,’ he said.

‘In his campaign, he has shown that the centre-Left can offer hope and win elections with a vision of a better, more equal and just world.’

Mr Holland wants a change to strict rules which dictate how much member states can spend, without which most observers believe a new European economic crisis is inevitable.

He has pledged to slap a 75 per cent tax on those earning more than one million euros a year, or around £850,000. The move is expected to lead to an exodus of ‘le super rich’ – with many of them likely to head to London where the top rate of tax will be 45p.

Mr Sarkozy and Germany’s Angela Merkel spearheaded the cost-cutting treaty, and many have worried about potential conflict within the Franco-German ‘couple’ that underpins Europe’s post-war unity. Today Standard & Poor’s said that the Mr Hollande’s election would not have an immediate impact on France’s AA+ credit rating.

But they said there is ‘at least a one in three chance’ that it will be lowered before the end of 2013. City analysts said that while stock markets had expected a Hollande win, the results in Paris and Athens could tip the strained eurozone back into turmoil. Mr Hollande claimed that many voters in Europe would greet his election with relief.

‘Europe is watching us, austerity can no longer be the only option,’ he said.

Struggling to contain his emotions, Mr Sarkozy said: ‘I did my best to protect the French people during the events of the past five years, so that France could come out stronger from this crisis.’
He finished: ‘You are the eternal France, I love you.’

He is the 11th European leader to be swept from office since the start of the economic crisis in 2008.

File:Eamon Gilmore Conference 2010 cropped.jpg

May 7, 2012

Writing in the Corriere della Sera newspaper, the columnist Sergio Romano wrote that in “the European Union there now exists an opposition formed by a broad array of movements that are too diverse to march together, but numerous enough to make life difficult for those whose will have to govern their countries in the near future.”

In Dublin, Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore, who is also the leader of the Labour Party, endorsed Mr. Hollande’s call for a new fiscal order. “Put simply, you can’t have economic growth unless you also have stability, but neither can you have stability without growth. It is clear that, with the election of Mr. Hollande, there is a growing number of allies in Europe who share this view.”

Further afield, China said it was “ready to work” with the new French administration, news reports said. But in Russia, violent street protests and the inauguration of Vladimir V. Putin for a third term as president on Monday eclipsed news of the French election. If anything, Mr. Sarkozy’s acknowledgment of defeat contrasted with Mr. Putin’s extraordinary grip on power in the Kremlin.

“A lot of people in our government believe real democracy doesn’t exist,” Mikhail G. Delyagin, director of the Institute of Globalization Studies, a research concern in Moscow, said in an interview Monday. “They don’t mind that everything is democratic in France but not at home.”

Mr. Sarkozy, he said, “admitted his defeat, congratulated the winner and behaved as a grown-up.” It was a model for Russia, Mr. Delyagin said.

Mr. Putin, meanwhile, congratulated Mr. Hollande in a message reported by Interfax.

“The citizens of France have entrusted you with being the leader of the country in what is quite a difficult and a very important period, when not just Europe but the entire world community face the urgent task of overcoming the effects of the financial and economic crisis and building new models for cooperation,” Mr. Putin said.

Although most of the Arab world was too busy with its own unrest to notice Mr. Sarkozy’s defeat, it was big news in Libya, where Mr. Sarkozy’s leading role in the NATO intervention has made him a hero of the revolution that overthrew Col. Muammar el Qaddafi.

Mr. Sarkozy was celebrated across the country a few weeks ago on a national holiday to mark the anniversary of the day that French military planes swooped down to stop a column of Qaddafi tanks from marching into the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, where many of the country’s current interim leaders had huddled together in fear of an impending massacre. Grateful revolutionaries have spray-painted “Sarkozy” in rainbow colors on the walls of cities around the country, and on Sunday night many Libyan Web pages noted his loss with a salute: “Merci, Sarkozy.”

Opponents of the Libyan revolution, meanwhile, reveled in the defeat. In recent weeks, former officials of the Qaddafi government have done everything they could to bring down the French president, including leaking reports that the Qaddafi government supported Mr. Sarkozy’s first election campaign or that, during the Qaddafi years, Mr. Sarkozy sought to sell Libya fighter jets and nuclear power. One former adviser to Colonel Qaddafi provided The New York Times with what appeared to be a transcript of a congratulatory phone call the Libyan leader made to the Mr. Sarkozy when he took office.

“I have kept a wonderful memory of the kind of analysis I have heard from you,” Mr. Sarkozy tells Colonel Qaddafi in the transcript, “and you really do deserve this title, the Leader.”

File:Sigmar Gabriel 2008.jpg

May 7, 2012

Hours after voters in France and Greece delivered sharp rebuttals to advocates of austerity as the antidote to Europe’s financial crisis, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany on Monday pointedly insisted that neither she nor her government favored a renegotiation of a fiscal pact underpinning the Continent’s belt-tightening.

Ms. Merkel’s remarks at a news conference in Berlin came as the victorious, socialist François Hollande prepared to succeed Nicolas Sarkozy as president of France. Her remarks underscored both the abiding significance of the axis between Paris and Berlin that drives European decision-making and the competing visions of austerity and stimulus as ways to combat crushing debt.

The balance between reducing borrowing and addressing popular anger at austerity measures is proving complicated for Europeans, and Mr. Hollande has said that he intends to give “a new direction to Europe,” demanding that a European Union treaty limiting debt be expanded to include measures to stimulate economic growth.

Ms. Merkel said she telephoned Mr. Hollande on Sunday night to congratulate him on his victory. On Monday, she stepped up her efforts to avoid any appearance of a strained relationship with the new French leader after working so closely with Mr. Sarkozy that their collaboration became known as “Merkozy.”

“I may say from my side that François Hollande will be welcomed with open arms here in Germany by me,” Ms. Merkel said. “We will work together well and intensively.”

But she insisted that the fiscal pact negotiated with Mr. Sarkozy and endorsed by 25 European Union member states was “not negotiable.”

“We in Germany are of the opinion, and so am I personally, that the fiscal pact is not negotiable. It has been negotiated and has been signed by 25 countries,” she said.

“We are in the middle of a debate to which France, of course, under its new president, will bring its own emphasis,” she said. “But we are talking about two sides of the same coin — progress is only achievable via solid finances plus growth.”

Her reference to growth was apparently designed to suggest that she was not ruling out some kind of compromise.

Her remarks came in the wake of elections in France and Greece that punished leaders advocating austerity, leaving Europeans on Monday to contemplate a new and untested political landscape shaped by competing demands for austerity to counter the debt crisis and growth to avert further deprivation.

With final results of the French presidential election announced on Monday, the socialist Mr. Hollande had secured 51.62 percent of the runoff vote.

In broad terms, the French vote unsettled center-right governments across Europe, while their center-left adversaries felt emboldened, hoping that the triumph of one socialist leader presaged a wider resurgence.

But the nub of the ideological and fiscal contest lay in the Continent’s traditional driving axis between Berlin and Paris, with Mr. Hollande promising to rewrite the austerity-driven pact struck between Mr. Sarkozy and Ms. Merkel.

News of Mr. Hollande’s election was splashed across the front pages of Germany’s newspapers. But it shared the space with coverage of setbacks for Ms. Merkel’s governing coalition at local elections in Germany’s northernmost state that may affect her room for maneuver in advance of national elections next year.

Ms. Merkel’s political opponents, though, seemed cheered. Sigmar Gabriel, head of the opposition Social Democrats, said on Monday that the result in France showed that “the politics of Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy led Europe deeper into crisis.”

The victory for Mr. Hollande will “not only change France, but finally help Europe to go in another direction,” he said.

In effect, Mr. Hollande’s commitment to negotiating a new pact for the battered euro zone seemed to challenge Ms. Merkel’s dominance of the debate, projecting France as the vaunted champion of a wider movement of people no longer prepared to go along with threats to cherished living standards.

“Austerity need not be Europe’s fate,” Mr. Hollande declared after his victory was announced.

“You are much more than a people who want change,” Mr. Hollande told a huge crowd in Paris gathered to celebrate his victory at the Place de la Bastille. “You are already a movement that is rising across all of Europe and maybe the world.”

The combative mood in France and the electoral rise of extreme challengers to the traditional titans of Greek politics in Athens left markets unsettled, with the euro at its lowest against the dollar in months. Stock markets in Asia and Europe stumbled.
