BREAKING! Top Macron aide Alexis Kohler faces French corruption inquiry

Alexis Kohler went to the same elite institutions as President Macron.

Translated from Belga news agency in Belgium today:

Macron‘s right hand man [the French president’s chief of staff] accused of corruption

Alexis Kohler, a confidant of French President Macron, risks being at the center of a judicial investigation. That is what the lawyer of anti-corruption organization Anticor, who went to the public prosecutor’s office with a complaint about passive corruption and use of influence.

The indictment comes after disclosures by news site Médiapart about the family ties and close professional ties between Kohler and the Italian-Swiss shipping company MSC. …

As an important customer, MSC played an essential role in the discussions about the future of the Saint-Nazaire shipyard. The French state is for a third owner of that shipyard. Kohler served on the board of directors of the yard on behalf of France.

Anticor now criticizes Kohler for accepting to sit on the board of directors of the shipyard from 2010 to 2012 as a representative of the state. However, he had to know that there was a conflict of interest because MSC was established and directed by a cousin of his mother.
