The former president of the Louvre Museum, Jean-Luc Martinez, who held the position until last August, has been charged with money laundering and an accomplice to fraud in a case of antiquities trafficking, according to the newspaper Le Monde.

Martinez was arrested last Monday along with the curator of the famous museum’s Egyptian antiquities department, Vincent Rondot, and the Egyptologist Olivier Perdu.
