This decision was made within the framework of an extraordinary meeting of shareholders of PJSC “SIBUR Holding”.
Former French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, previously convicted of corruption, became a member of the board of directors of & # 8220; Sibur & # 8221 ;.
The corresponding decision was made following the results of an extraordinary meeting of shareholders of PJSC & # 8220; SIBUR Holding & # 8221; held on December 17.
Recall that Francois Fillon headed the French government under President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Now he will take the post of an independent director and will be a member of one of the committees.
With his presence, he will replace Kirill Shamalov, who was previously called in the media the ex-son-in-law of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Recall that in 2021, a court in Paris found François Fillon guilty of embezzlement of budget funds with a fictitious arrangement of his wife as an assistant in parliament.
He was fined 375 thousand euros, as well as a prison term of five years, of which two years he was supposed to be in prison.
His wife was found to be an accomplice in the crime and was sentenced to a similar punishment afu and three suspended years in prison.
Earlier, TopNews wrote that & # 8220; Putin's former son-in-law & # 8221; took up arms against journalists.
He criticized the media, accusing them of discrediting by publishing the purchase of shares of & # 8220; Sibur & # 8221; for $ 100.
