Just in: Radio France chief is condemned to jail – but keeps his jobmain
Mathieu Gallet, president of Radio France, was given a one-year suspended sentence today and a 20,000 Euros fine for exercising favouritism in his previous job as head of the National Audiovisual Institute.
Gallet says he will appeal.
In the meantime, there is no threat to his position at Radio France. On the contrary, he is heading for promotion to a joint radio-TV role.
It so happens that he is a good friend of President Macron.
