International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde was convicted of negligence by a Paris court over her handling of a multimillion-euro dispute during her time as France’s finance minister nearly a decade ago.
The 60-year-old managing director of the IMF won’t face a fine or prison term, Judge Martine Ract-Madoux said Monday. The judges on the Cour de Justice de la Republique said that Lagarde should have done more to overturn a 285 million-euro ($300 million) payout to a businessman in an arbitration case.
