French prosecutor says fake work probe will continue

The prosecutor said that “numerous elements collected do not, at this stage, permit the case to be dropped.”

French presidential candidate Francois Fillon speaks during a campaign rally in Paris on January 29, 2017

The prosecutor said that “numerous elements collected (by investigators) do not, at this stage, permit the case to be dropped.”

She is being investigated over a scandal of embezzling hundreds of thousands of euros in taxpayers’ money.

Fillon’s wife was alleged of being paid for work she may not have done and this has cost the 62 year-old former prime minister his status as favourite to win the French presidency in May.
