Just Wondering

Longtime readers of this blog may recall the name of Denis Gautier-Sauvagnac, the former head of the mining and metals industry association UIMM, who was accused in 2007 of diverting 20 million euros worth of the organization's money to some mysterious purpose. Some said it was to buy off the unions. Others hinted at still more nefarious operations. But as far as I can determine nothing has come of the case. Is there still an investigation? Or has this affair been successfully buried after achieving its goal: the removal of Gautier-Sauvagnac from his post?

Thanks. The wheels of justice do grind exceedingly slowly, don't they?
