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.
More than seven hours of interviews
Around 7:15 pm, the hearings of the two children “ended” after more than seven hours spent at the office of the Central Anti-Corruption Office in Nanterre. Francois Fillon, then Senator of the Sarthe, recruited his children in turn as assistants: from October 2005 to December 2006 for the eldest daughter of the couple, Marie, who received 3,800 euros gross per month, and from January to June 2007 For Charles, which received 4,846 euros gross per month.
In addition to her position as a senator’s assistant, Marie Fillon practiced as a lawyer trainee in a law firm from January 2006. François Fillon had also mentioned the case of his son. The former prime minister said that Charles Fillon had “helped him by working on the program of the presidential candidate (Nicolas Sarkozy) on institutional subjects.”
