François Fillon’s children interviewed by police for 7 hours

Two of François Fillon’s children, Charles and Marie Fillon, were interviewed in Nanterre this Thursday by police investigators. The interviews were related to their part into the investigation of fictitious employment under their father whilst he was Senator of the Sarthe.

Fillon himself has dismissed the allegations as false, and also offered his apologies. Today his lawyers asked for the case to be dismissed, claiming it was illegal. The investigation has damaged his position in the polls, with Fillon not expected to win the First Round of the French Presidential election in 10 weeks.
