legal information against Dupond-Moretti

A judicial investigation into Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti for “illegal taking of interests” will be launched shortly, which was announced on Friday in a statement by the Attorney General at the François Molins Court of Cassation.

The Committee of Inquiry of the Court of Justice of the Republic (CJR), which is responsible for actions taken by ministers in the performance of their duties, will examine the keeper of the seals.

The Anticor association and three unions had filed a complaint against Eric Dupond-Moretti, accusing him of conflicts of interest related to his previous practice as a lawyer.
