The explanation was simple. At the time First lady, Bernadette Chirac was in October 2004 on an official trip with her husband, Jacques, Vietnam. The minister of vietnam, of Justice, it had had then slipped in : “do you Know Johnny Hallyday ? You know, he and his wife can’t have children. “ The procedure was, to say the least accelerated.
