This is the lady who was telling you all to Vote Remain

A special court in France has found International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde guilty of criminal negligence.

Judges did not hand down a sentence for Lagarde for failing to challenge a €400m (£340m) state arbitration payout to business tycoon Bernard Tapie in 2008 when she was French finance minister.

The IMF board is expected to meet later on Monday to discuss the implications of the verdict.

:cool:

So the French state arbitration board awards a payment to an individual, and 8 years later, a special court has found the French finance minister guilty of negligence for not challenging the award.

Did the organisation that awarded the money do anything wrong?

Edit: It appears Tapei had to repay the 400 million Euros.

Farage who fiddled thousands in election expenses and us being investigated by the EP told us to vote brexit.
Quelle difference ?

Wouldn't have thought you'd find too many Lagarde fans on here. You can certainly count me out - and of the branch of the IMF she heads up, as well. That's all rampant neoliberalism at work. You know - the sort of thing you're an ardent fan of. The opposite of the mythical loony lefties and their non-existent socialist economics.

Allowable procedure under a provision of French law.

Not quite what the court said. It's those naughty mags of yours misquoting again. Negligence was what the court decided, not criminal negligence - hence no penalty and no criminal record, more's the pity.

Reuters, Sterling recovers some of recent losses following announcement by May in Parliament that the UK government ( we the taxpayer ) will cover any payments and subsidies the UK currently receives from the EU.
What ever happened to the 350million a week ?
Liam Fox probably the most extreme of of brexit ministers has admitted that the UK may need transitional arrangements ref trade.
The EU response, not until you agree the terms of the UK departure.
Brexit, what Brexit.

Funnily enough the leavers were the only people to mention £350 million a week, those in the remain camp did take away from the 350 million the amount that we got in reductions as guaranteed when we joined, and the amount spent in the UK on projects by the EU,

So that places EMR firmly in the leave camp.

According to a spokesperson for the European Parliament, they simply do not have enough bureaucrats and administrators to keep track of the expenses of all MEPs.
They claim that hiring the necessary staff would be too costly and instead decided to leave the expenses of MEP's unmonitored.

This means the spending of more than 700 MEPs has no oversight. The funding we provide could end up being spent on anything!

More than 33,000 Eurocrats employed in Brussels but apparently they can't spare a few to keep themselves honest.

Just another reason to leave the bureaucratic nightmare that is the EU.
