The online journal Mediapart broke the story in December, alleging that Cahuzac had transferred money from a Swiss account into another in Singapore. It produced a recording that it said was of Cahuzac's voice talking about his secret account. Mediapart said the recording, dating back more than a decade, turned up â¿¿ apparently accidentally and unbeknownst to Cahuzac â¿¿ on the voice mail system of someone he knew.Cahuzac, who garnered a hand-shake from Ayrault and a pat-on-the-back from a colleague after his fervent speech of self-defense in the National Assembly, repeated his denials on French TV and radio interviews. He also filed a defamation suit against Mediapart.
