French Criminal Case Gives Glimpse Into Life Of L’Oréal Heiress

Gavel BWThe criminal trial in France involving allegations by prosecutors that trusted advisers of the second wealthiest woman in the world exploited her mental state and schemed her out of over €1 billion, concluded Wednesday and a verdict is expected on Saturday. The prosecution accused a long list of individuals close to 92-year-old L’Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt, of taking advantage of her as she aged and began to develop dementia.
