French ex-prime minister found guilty of fraud
PARIS A Paris court has found French former prime minister Francois Fillon guilty of having used public funds to pay his wife and children for work they never performed. The work had brought the family more than 1 million euros ($1.08 million) since 1998. Fillon, who was Frances prime minister from 2007 to 2012, then left French politics. A Paris court is set to give or may postpone a verdict in the fraud trial of former French Prime Minister Francois Fillon on Monday. Fillon, once the youngest lawmaker at the National Assembly at the age of 27, served as prime minister under President Nicolas Sarkozy from 2007 to 2012.
