Richard's personal details were put online and he then received about 100 phone calls, with some containing death threats, the judicial source said. Paris police had opened an investigation after Richard filed a complaint.
Orange did not immediately return a request for comment.
Israel protested to France after Richard said earlier this month that he would terminate a licensing arrangement with Israel's Partner Communications "tomorrow morning" if the contracts allowed. Orange is 25 percent owned by the French government.
Partner operates under the Orange brand name through a licensing deal that is believed to expire in 10 years but has no other connection to the French company.
Richard said he had been speaking of ending the licensing deal in Israel on purely business grounds. Orange has spoken in the past of wanting to take back full control of its brand.Güncelleme Tarihi: 16 Haziran 2015, 13:48
