(Beating Bedrag to it)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-53217298

French ex-Prime Minister François Fillon and his Welsh wife have received jail sentences in a "fake jobs" case.

The conservative politician was found guilty of paying Penelope Fillon €831,400 (£760,000; $938,000) for work she never did as his assistant.

He was sentenced to five years in prison, three of them suspended. She was given a three-year suspended term.

The scandal ruined his presidential bid in 2017. Both have appealed, blocking Mr Fillon's immediate detention.

He is the most senior French political figure to receive a custodial sentence since the start of the Fifth Republic in 1958.

 

Have the French not heard of the Welsh Assembly?

So, @One percent's employers could be jailed for paying her for work she never does?

Or is this not some barmy pre-Brexit EU law that we've inherited?

Surely she should have got real jail time too, just like he did I thought man and woman were equal
