Former French PM François Fillon sentenced to prison over ‘fake jobs’ scandal

A French court has found former prime minister François Fillon guilty of paying his wife over €1 million in public funds for a „fake job”.

Fillon was sentenced to five years in prison – three of which can be served in the community. He will also have to pay a €375,000 fine and will be barred from running in elections for 10 years.

His wife Penelope received a three-year suspended sentence, a €375,000 fine and a two-year election ban.

Their lawyers said they’ll appeal the sentence.
