Clarification

Peyron said his comments in a June 1 article may have wrongly implied that the case is likely to end up in court.

French investigating magistrate David Peyron, who is overseeing the Pierre Berge indictment on insider trading, told WWD his inquiry "could finish by finding there are no grounds [for a court case] or it could finish before the court."


Peyron said his comments in a June 1 article may have wrongly implied that the case is likely to end up in court.


He added, "The length of the investigation could be very variable, from a few months to more than a year."
