FORMER FRENCH PRIME MINISTER ALAIN JUPPE ARRIVES IN BORDEAUX'S CITY COUNCIL.
Former French Prime Minister Alain Juppe arrives in Bordeaux's city council February 2, 2004. Juppe has received a suspended jail sentence in a political corruption trial which has barred him from public office, dashing his hopes in the 2007 presidential race. The court found Juppe guilty of wrongdoing in a scam in which Paris city hall funds were used to pay political party allies in the late 1980's and early 1990's. REUTERS/Regis Duvignau RD/THI
