Minister in charge of tax evasion quits
Oy. Budget minister Cahuzac, in charge of the govt's crackdown on tax evasion, was fired yesterday after a formal investigation by prosecutors into his own tax affairs.
The main evidence appears to be (You guessed it Huhne lovers!) a taped conversation from 2000 where a man alleged to be Cahuzac admits to having such an illegal Swiss account. Rumours have abounded for the past 2 years that A: He had such an illegal account and B: The rumours were being started by his estranged wife.
This can run and run and run.
Embarrassing for Hollande, but the seems to have dealt with it decisively at least. The Palace were very clear that they "put an end to the duties of Jerome Cahuzac".
