The investigation into the fact of illegal financing of the French President Emmanuel Macron’s campaign at the 2017 elections in France has been renewed. This is reported by TASS based on Le Parisien.

The French National Financial Prosecutor’s Office was the initiator of the investigation. The organization assigned three investigative judges to the case.

Le Parisien recalled that the investigation was initially launched in March after a Senate report and focused on money laundering and corporate tax evasion by private consulting companies. Investigators then suggested that McKinsey’s French office had not paid taxes for the past ten years, causing government spending to double between 2018 and 2021, reaching a billion a year. After searching the company, the prosecutor’s office also began to suspect it of “favoritism” and “illegal financing of the election campaign.” Now, investigators are going to look into the existence of McKinsey’s privileges in awarding government contracts.

They have so far managed to find out the connection between Macron’s entourage and the company. Moreover, the organization’s consultants worked on the campaign of the current French president in the 2017 elections. The investigators also claim that they held certain positions in the March Party and ministries in the republic.
