The French justice accused on the night of Wednesday to Richard Ferrand , president of the National Assembly (AN), man of confidence of Emmanuel Macron, for alleged offenses of "misappropriation of public funds", what might lead to an eventual scandal of "conflict of interest" between public and private positions.
According to leaks court and the information of the satirical weekly "Le Canard enchaîné" (traditionally well-informed), Richard Ferrand was able to commit several order offences-administrative and financial years ago , between 2011 and 2017, when he was director general of the company, Mutuelles de Bretagne and was able to carry out real estate transactions with the aim of promoting Françoise Coustal (ex-wife of the president of the National Assembly), and Sandrine Doucen (his current lady friend).
a little over a year, the association of anti-corruption "Anticor" filed a complaint, alleging possible corruption offences. In his view, Ferrand would have facilitated a "juicy" operation real estate, the benefit of your current lady friend , "concealing" his involvement as a chief executive of "Mutuelles de Bretagne".
After a long previous process, the justice has decided to begin the statement of the case, questioning Ferrand, it says "serene" and " willing to follow your work as president of the National Assembly".
The opening of a judicial investigation for alleged offenses of "misappropriation of public funds", will not prejudge the guilt of the suspect. On the contrary, "fade" politically on the cusp of the State .
The president of the AN is the fourth hierarchy of the State , and, in this case, a man trusted by the president of the Republic, privileged member of the "guardia pretoriana" staff of Emmanuel Macron.Updated Date: 13 September 2019, 01:00
