Paris (AFP) - A French appeals court ruled Tuesday that Teodorin Obiang, son of Equatorial Guinea's long-running dictator, does not have immunity for prosecution on embezzlement charges.

Obiang, one of the country's vice-presidents, was charged by French prosecutors in March 2014 with money laundering and misappropriating millions of dollars in public funds.
