Jacques Chirac’s wife denies Alzheimer’s report

The wife of French former President Jacques Chirac has denied reports that he is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Bernadette Chirac told French radio that she was “scandalised” by the claims, little more than a month before her husband’s trial for corruption. Mr. Chirac, president from 1995 to 2007, is facing two sets of allegations from his time as mayor of Paris. A court in Paris confirmed on Monday that the trial would start on 7 March.
