Did you read the actual information that you posted? This was when she was finance minister in the French government, prior to joining the IMF. She didn't even pay the money out, she referred the case it was in regards to to arbitration. The actual arbitration panel awarded the amount, not her, she then approved it based on their findings.

www.bbc.co.uk...

If anything, if you read the detail you could very easily surmise she is being used more as a scapegoat.


The arbitration was done by a private panel and not the courts - very unusual, especially as it was awarding a handout to a friend of the then French President. A child would have spotted the conflict of interest and the dangers of using a private panel. She was quite rightly charged with negligence in her duties as finance minister - she should never have allowed this to happen. She is either corrupt or stupid. Either way, the fact she has been found guilty but is keeping her job at the IMF, where she can continue to be corrupt or stupid just at a larger scale, speaks volumes.

It speaks volumes about someone who doesn't know how the French government carried out such cases at the time, but then again that's why we are allowed an opinion.

It does indeed. I admire your introspection. Very noble.

My pleasure. I find your humility very refreshing, perhaps it's due to the change of year and from now on you will rely more on facts and less on projecting your opinion onto them. Happy new year.

She fled to Washington? That's odd (not really ofc). Im pretty sure we have extradition agreement with the EU. Wouldn't mexico have been better because im pretty sure they have no such agreements with the EU.
