FRENCH ex-Prime Minister François Fillon and his Welsh wife Penelope have been jailed over a ‘fake jobs’ scandal.
Fillon got five years in jail with three of them suspended.
She received a three-year suspended sentence.
They were both fined €375,000 (£343,000) each.
In 2017 when the scandal broke it destroyed the then Prime Minister’s attempt to become President, his wife had been hired to do a job which literally did not exist, and was paid a salary of €831,400.
She was also found guilty of conspiracy to embezzle and conceal public funds.
