France-Bolloré remains indicted for alleged corruption in Togo

The French businessman Vincent Bolloré has not finished with his legal setbacks linked to Togo. The Paris Court of Appeal on March 21 canceled part of the documents of the investigation, but it confirmed his indictment for corruption.

According to his lawyers, the Paris Court of Appeal canceled, on Tuesday, part of the documents of the investigation into the allocation of the management of the port of Lomé between 2009 and 2011.

The Court of Appeal has reportedly been asked by the defense of Vincent Bolloré to cancel the judicial inquiry and therefore of his indictment.

The investigating chamber of the court of appeal will cancel part of the documents on the case, but confirm the rejection of a request for placement of Vincent Bolloré under the intermediate status of assisted witness, according to a judicial source.

In February 2021, m Bolloré had publicly admitted the charges and agreed to pay a fine of 375,000 euros, during an appearance on prior recognition of guilt (CRPC), negotiated with the prosecution. But the judge in charge of the case had refused to approve this “plea guilty”, considering “necessary” the holding of a trial.

According to the information relayed, it was therefore the documents relating to this CRPC that the Court of Appeal finally canceled.

La liste de tous ces martyrs, assassinés d´une façon ou d´une autre, est longue. Les nombreuses tentatives depuis le début des années ´90 pour humaniser le pouvoir d´état et le rendre aux Togolais, n´ont pas pu résister à la terreur militaire, seule légitimité de la dictature du père en fils.
