Jean-Jacques Annaud was sentenced to nine months in prison suspended this Tuesday, March 2 , in Paris. But what was he blamed for receiving such a sentence? An accusation in the wake of the Paradise Papers.
A hard blow for Jean-Jacques Annaud . This Tuesday, March 2, as reported by the newspaper, among others, of the Name of the Rose was sentenced for laundering tax fraud to nine months in prison suspended and 120,000 euros fine. A sentence awarded by the Paris court (the sentence was proposed by the national financial prosecutor's office), which he receives for not having declared to the tax authorities more than one million euros paid in 1997 . Amount collected in connection with the making with Brad Pitt as headliner. The sum in question corresponds to part of the 110 million euros generated by the film at the global box office.
Albert von Monaco: Open words about his twins Jacques & Gabriella
Albert von Monaco (62) is involved in a variety of ways: Since 2005 he has ruled the Principality on the Mediterranean Sea as head of state. He strongly advocates environmental protection and has reached both the North Pole and the South Pole on his "business trips" for this important topic. He also took part in the Winter Olympics as a bobsleigh driver for his country five times.
The amount pocketed, it was placed in an trust nicknamed Los Condores, first located on the Channel Island of Guernsey, then on the Cayman Islands, before being transferred to Hong Kong. In November 2017, the existence of this same trust was revealed by Radio France and the newspaper Le Monde, in the context of the Paradise Papers affair. Jean-Jacques Annaud sees himself pinned. His lawyer takes the floor to plead his good faith, stating that he is "One million euros to pay , but not an excellent tax expert." The council then affirmed that the payment was chosen by Sony studios, the American producer of the feature film at the heart of the scandal. The main person concerned has never denied the facts with which he was accused.
"Mr. Annaud is totally foreign to international financial and fiscal mechanisms ", explained his lawyer Me Eric Delloye to AFP on Tuesday 2 March. "[He] was only a beneficiary of this remuneration - which he still has not received - on the advice of American lawyers who did not explain to him the ins and outs of the operations." If he qualified the proposed sanctions as "adapted", as recognized by the Paris court on the day of the hearing, Jean-Jacques Annaud would have already settled his tax slate . Since the shattering revelations of the press, the director who has been given multiple awards has pledged to pay a total of one million euros, or 600,000 euros in taxes evaded over twenty years , and penalties.
