In 2017, François Fillon, presented as the potential future president of the Republic, withdrew from political life after the case of the same name. New revelations come to tarnish the image of Impartial Justice.
Emmanuel Macron, the president of the Republic, has entered the Superior Council of the Magistracy (CSM), following the declarations of Ms. Eliane Houlette, former attorney financial. The president of the Republic knows the danger of the Case Fillon, and some did not hesitate to imply, that the result of the election of 2017 could have been much different.
The presidential election of 2017 in question ?
It is not a matter of detailing the procedure, but to establish the major guidelines for a better understanding of the seriousness of the charges brought by the former manager of the parquet national financier (PNF). The following article Duck Chained, the PNF decided at the beginning of the year 2017 to open a preliminary investigation, which constitutes a common action, and logic. The revelations about jobs dummy of the bride of the one, which is then presented as the future president of the Fifth Republic, require to be verified.
We think, then, that the instruction will adhere to a tacit rule (and not official) that François Fillon to continue his election campaign. Only, only a month after the opening of this preliminary investigation, the PNF changes gear by transforming the procedure in Judicial Information. This decision involved a change in charge of the investigation. Now, it is a judge of instruction, who was to lead the investigations. And this last, in the person of Serge Tournaire, did not lose time to call the candidate to the presidential election, just 3 days after having been officially entered. And on march 14, 2017, François Fillon was put in examination, marking the beginning of the end of his political career.
The Case Fillon, an instrumentalisation of the justice ?
In a few days, the 29 June, the criminal court will deliver its verdict in the case against spouses Fillon. But now, the question is no longer whether the ex-candidate of the right republican is guilty or not guilty, but to discover if Justice was used for political purposes.
This is what he heard in Mrs. Crook, stating :
The rush to act is therefore not due to chance, but to a decision of the chancery. And the support of French prime minister François Fillon see in these statements the evidence of a manipulation of justice.
Continuing her statements, Ms. Crook explained also to have been the subject of many requests for information on this case. These requests are not condemned in itself, but this eagerness to want to know more in the midst of elections laying there-yet questions.
Emmanuel Macron does not mean that the case Fillon come again to disrupt the presidential elections in …2022. And the risk is real, as disputes are increasingly strong to denounce a ” justice for orders “.
