The former leader of the French Socialist Party has been placed under arrest in connection with a national inquiry into the use of asbestos. Between 1984 and 1987, Martine Aubry was responsible for workers’ health protection. Lawyers want to determine if the French state is liable in the delay taken to ban asbestos, which is a known carcinogen.
