The Prosecutor Office of France initiated a pre-trial investigation in connection with a supposed violation by LafargeHolcim, a French company producing concrete, of the European requirements implying a ban on oil purchase in Syria in 2014, Swiss newspaper Le Matin reports.


According to the newspaper, the Economy Ministry of France filed an application to the Prosecution Office as early as September, 2016.
