Goulard says shell respect outcome of French probe, regrets consulting work
Internal market commissioner-designate Sylvie Goulard said Wednesday that she would “respect the outcome” of a French legal probe into the wages of an assistant she employed while serving as a member of the European Parliament.
Asked if she would resign from the European Commission if convicted in that probe, she said: “I will obviously respect that sort of outcome, but for now it is a hypothetical question.”
Goulard remains the focus of a probe in France about her parliamentary assistant.
“I hope with all my heart that I will be able to come out [of the situation] with my head held high and that if you grant me your confidence I will be able to work with you for five years,” she added.
