PARIS: French prosecutors have recommended that cement maker Lafarge stand trial on charges of terrorism financing over its past activities in Syria, a source close to the case told AFP Friday.
France’s anti-terror prosecution unit (PNAT) wants to put the company and nine of its former managers in the dock, the source said.
Lafarge has since 2015 been part of Swiss building materials conglomerate Holcim.
