PARIS — The Bettencourt affair has commanded countless page-one stories, morphed into an affair of state and even had a play written in its honor. Yet little ink was spilled in Europe’s major newspapers this week about how 10 people will be tried in the ongoing saga by a Bordeaux, France-based court starting on Jan. 26.
Of the nation’s main print dailies, plus The Wall Street Journal’s Europe edition, International New York Times and Financial Times, only Le Figaro devoted a brief to the fact that the main part of the Bettencourt affair, involving the people accused of having abused the weakness of Liliane Bettencourt — the 91-year-old L’Oréal heiress — would be heard in January. It appeared on page 10 of the newspaper.
