French financier Bernard Tapie and his wife were attacked by four robbers in their home in Combs-la-Ville, 50 kilometers from Paris. Judicial sources report it. The thieves beat up and tied up the couple before escaping with the loot.
The controversial businessman, who has had more than one problem with justice in the past, is best known for his involvement in an investigation involving former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, close to him, and the then minister of Finance, Christine Lagarde.
The current president of the ECB in 2016 was found guilty of “negligence” by the Paris court for having created an arbitration commission that had awarded a public compensation of 404 million, deemed illegitimate, to Tapie for the acquisition of the Adidas brand from the bank publishes Credit Lyonnais at a price deemed too low. The businessman was then acquitted in 2019, a verdict that, in fact, paved the way for Lagarde to the Eurotower.
