Fired Renault executive asks Nicolas Sarkozy to intervene in the spy case

The espionage affair which concerned the Renault EV brings to light even more details and this time the president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy gets involved. In the article that we published some time ago, we mentioned that the company fired three of its employees, as they were suspected of giving information to the Chinese, related to technology of the electric vehicles. One of the three employees, Bertrand Rochette has appealed directly to Nicolas Sarkozy and the Minister of Justice, Michel Mercier, asking him to intervene in this case, as they claim legal access to the complaint that Renault filed in January this year. Rochette's lawyers argued that the content of the complaint was not known by their client, despite the fact that he was involved directly in the matter, asking for the right to defend himself after he had been compromised by some accusations which were not accurate at all. In the document sent on Thursday, the legal advisers stated that they could envisage keeping an investigation secret in order to avoid any interferences, but public statements should be accompanied by the full information concerning the allegations brought to a person. The innocence of the three ex-employees could be proved by the results of the official probes related to the bank accounts from Switzerland or Liechtenstein that the three executives could hold. If they prove to be innocent, Renault is likely to give a lot of explanations.
