Frederique Giffard, lawyer of Valerie Trierweiler, French president's partner, prepares before the start of the trial of French television journalists Christophe Jakubyszyn and Alix Bouilhaguet (unseen), on March 20, 2013 at the Paris' courthouse, after Valerie Trierweiler suied them for defamation and invasion of privacy, seeking 85,000 euros ($110,000) in damages and court costs, for their book of 'La Frondeuse' (The Rebel). As the trial opened today, it emerged that Hollande sent a letter -- but not on paper with the presidential letterhead -- to the court denying an assertion in the book that he had reached out to the right in the mid-1990s. There was no official reaction from Hollande, but a source close to the president said he was in no way trying to influence the court and was simply providing testimony in the case.
