Press release of Madame Christine Lagarde

“I have just been heard by the investigating magistrates of the Court of Justice in a very complex and longstanding case that opposed the Tapie Group liquidators to the Crédit Lyonnais for more than 20 years.

This is a process through which I was able to provide information to demonstrate that I have always acted in the best public interest and in accordance with the law.

My status of assisted witness confirms this.
Now, it’s time for me to go back to work in Washington, and I will of course be briefing my Board.”
