VSt is a trial that is not getting any younger. A dive into the world before. The accused are 91 and 78 years old. One was Prime Minister from 1993 to 1995. The other was at the time his Minister of Defense. Édouard Balladur and François Léotard have been appearing since Tuesday and for three weeks before the Court of Justice of the Republic, the only one able to judge the crimes and misdemeanors accused of ministers in the exercise of their function. Thin, white hair, Balladur is still dashing and combative. And if we said Leotard sick, yet here he is, resolved even to defend himself alone, without lawyers. The two men answer for abuse of corporate assets.
