(ANSA-AFP) - PARIS, 12 AGO - Former Czech prime minister Andrej Babis is under investigation in France over alleged tax fraud and money laundering in a case prompted by the "Pandora Papers" leaks, prosecutors said Friday. Babis, who lost a re-election bid last October, is one of several politicians named the same month in the Pandora Papers dump of millions of documents into alleged use of offshore tax havens. The documents appear to show he failed to declare an offshore investment company used to buy a chateau in southern France worth $22 million. (ANSA-AFP).
