Judges Look into French Candidate Fillon's Fancy Suits

Judges Look into French Candidate Fillon's Fancy Suits

Thursday, 16 March 2017 04:37 PM

PARIS (AP) — A French justice official said judges who are looking into alleged fake jobs arranged by French presidential candidate Francois Fillon will extend their investigation to the expensive suits he received as a gift by an unidentified benefactor.

The official spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.

Five days ago, the Journal du Dimanche newspaper suggested a possible conflict of interest around the suits, which were bought at a pricey Parisian boutique, saying they were worth more than 48,000 euros ($52,000) over the past five years — including two suits worth 13,000 euros ($14,000) last month.

Fillon, a conservative, is facing charges for taxpayer-funded jobs his wife and children received but allegedly never performed.

He has vowed to keep campaigning for France's two-round, April-May presidential election.
