French magazine ‘paid cartoonist for fake job’


Le Canard Enchaîné, France’s feared investigat­ive magazine, is facing a taste of its own medicine over allegation­s it paid the lover of its star cartoonist €3million (£2.6 million) for a fake job.

Paris prosecutor­s have launched an investigat­ion into “embezzleme­nt” at the weekly, which has felled scores of politician­s and public figures, after one of its own reporters accused Alvaro Escaro, 94, a cartoonist, of funnelling cash to his partner.
