Patrick Balkany and his wife have been tried and convicted in the Courts for serious financial crimes. He was the Maire and she was an adjoint of a large town near Paris. They were both sentenced to imprisonment, a hefty fine and barred from public office for 10 years.
They was last Autumn. She attempted suicide at the time and was judged so ill she could not be incarcerated. She took over her husband’s mayoral duties as he was incarcerated for 3 years.
Yesterday he was judged to be suffering from depression and had become suicidal the Court of Appeal released him from prison.
What is it about French Justice that doesn’t inspire confidence.?
