  • The Markovic affair was a political scandal in France in the late 1960s, involving French President Georges Pompidou and movie star Alain Delon. It began when one of Alain Delon’s bodyguards, Steven Markovic, was found dead, causing his brother to start a feud against Alain Delon and his friends, one of whom was the French President, Georges Pompidou. Both Delon and Marcantoni were questioned by the police immediately after the murder. Marcantoni was originally charged for the murder, but after further questioning by the police, he was released. Later, the drama continued when supposedly inappropriate photos were taken of Madame Pompidou were found. Commissionaire Aimé-Blanc, who was involved in the obtaining of the photos, stated that the photos were planted by old Gaullist clans who had long-term tension against Pompidou. This lead controversy if where the photos were real. However, the murder of Markovic was never solved. Wikipedia
