戴着法国大臣面具的诈骗犯被判入狱Fraudsters who wore mask of French minister jailed
Two men who impersonated a French minister to trick wealthy people out of more than €55m(£48m) have been jailed by a court in Paris.
Franco-Israelis Gilbert Chikli and Anthony Lasarevitsch conned their victims by impersonating Jean-Yves Le Drian , often wearing a silicone mask.
They denied fraud and usurping Mr Le Drian’s identity but were found guilty.
Chikli was jailed for 11 years and fined €2m while Lasarevitsch received a seven-year sentence and a fine of €1m.
