SUSAN BELL IN PARIS

THE French company chairman under investigation for alleged corruption involving deals with Iran has been banned from contacting the former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and his son Mehdi, it was revealed yesterday.

Christophe de Margerie, the chief executive of Total - known within the oil company as "the Big Moustache" - has been questioned about claims the firm paid bribes of more than £40 million to secure a natural gas deal with Iran in 1997, while he was serving as the firm's head of operations in the Middle East.
