A quick search of the BBC[1] and Guardian[2] news site can find no mention of this story. Can anyone verify this from a second source? --Axon 14:27, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

I suppose that for leaks from French judicial enquiries, the major French press (Libé, Le Monde...) is a better choice than televisions and newspapers from other countries. Submarine 06:20, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

True, but a confirmation for a second source would still be helpful here, regardless of the country and languague it is in. For example, for balance does anyone refute the leak? I would also think that any news regarding the recent allegations agains French Ministers and British MPs would be of some importance to the British (or American) press. --Axon 10:27, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
Pasque refutes any wrongdoing, as we said in a preceding article. I'm surprised, though: I did not seen anything in the Canard Enchaîné, probably the best source of French official leaks. Submarine 08:35, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
