Head of the IMF Christine Lagarde in court charged with embezzlement and fraud

23 May 2013

The head of the International Monetary Fund arrived in the dock of a Paris courtroom today as she braced herself to be formally charged with embezzlement and fraud.

Christine Lagarde’s humiliation is not only a massive personal blow which could lead to her resignation, but one which will plunge the world’s banking system into further ignominy.

The clearly nervous 57-year-old said nothing to reporters as she entered the Court of Justice of the Republic, a special tribunal set up to judge the conduct of France’s government ministers, shortly after 8.30am.

Lagarde faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail if found guilty of the very serious charges.

Oh good. Another big Illuminati club member taken out. I'll have to check and see Zero Hedge comments now.

This is actually pretty big news if it turns out to be true.

Nice find.

WOW

Another card is coming down from this house of cards.
