Penelope Fillon, Wife of Francois Fillon, Charged with Embezzlement

Penelope Fillon is being prosecuted for embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds and aggravated fraud. Fillon was put under investigation in the scandal that damaged Francois Fillon’s political career. In January, a satirical newspaper revealed that Francois had paid his wife and two of their children over 10 years to work as his parliamentary assistants. The French Financial prosecutor had decided there was sufficient doubt to investigate the legitimacy of the position. Francois Fillon’s presidential opponent Le Pen is also currently under investigation for misuse of parliamentary allowances.
