France: France reopened its investigation of the chief of staff Macron

Investigators have reopened an investigation into the conflict of interests concerning the chief of office of the president and Emmanuel Macron, Alexis Kohler, about his links with the giant transport swiss-Italian MSC, said sources Wednesday to the AFP. An initial criminal investigation by the public prosecutor in charge of economic crimes, was abandoned in August of last year, which prompted the electoral group Anticor to make a complaint in a civil action.

On Monday, the investigating magistrates have agreed to act on the complaint of Anticor, said the sources, confirming a report of the site investigation Mediapart.

As a high official of the ministry of the economy prior to the election of Mr Macron in 2017, Mr. Kohler would have worked on matters involving the shipyard STX France, where MSC was a major client.
