Director of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, was found guilty of "negligence in the performance of her duties" when being the Minister of the Economy of France in 2008. Such a decision was announced today, on December 19, by the Court of the French Republic.
"Lagarde was found to be at fault over her decision allowing a dispute over sale of the Adidas sports brand to Credit Lyonnais bank to be resolved by a private arbitration panel rather than through the courts, then failing to challenge the 404-million-euro ($422 million) award that followed." the publication said.
