On 15 November, the appeal against François and Penelope Fillon opened. Five after the start of the fictitious job scandal, the couple was back in court. Once again, the entire Fillon family was in the spotlight. In fact, even their five children saw their lives changed the day Penelopegate came out. Marie, Charles, Antoine, Edouard and Arnaud Fillon are known to some by the French : the eldest, Marie, 39, was seen in a section ofIntimate Ambition, dedicated to his father. As a lawyer, she was followed by her brother, Charles, 36, who specialized in stock market law and company law.
Antoine Fillon, the third, preferred the financial world over him, while Édouard, 31, works in an investment company. Finally, there is the last one, Antoine, 19, a student, in the preparation class. Moreover, the youngest of siblings was not really expected of the Fillon couple: “It was definitely a surprise. I was 47 years old. There I said to myself, it’s not possible, I can not let it grow without seeing it. So already now I took care of it a lot more. And rather I took everything with the family back to Paris “, he confided in Current values.
François Fillon: “Basically, they were raised by their mother”
The first four, François Fillon admits not having trained them: “The first four I did not have much time to watch them grow up because I was a deputy. It was seven days a week. I was in Paris while my family was in Sarthe. So basically they were raised by their mother. “ But when the scandal broke out, the whole clan protects itself and unites. Charles Fillon explained: “I do not feel the need to rebuild myself compared to recent years. I do not quite care. What is more complicated, however, is for the parents, who feel guilty for having imposed this on us. But I do not blame at all sheep”. A beautiful proof of love.
