The former deputy and current city councilor Simon Brandt was guilty of violating official secrecy, according to the public prosecutor. The elected PLR receives an 80-day fine at 170 francs per day, or 13,600 francs, with a fine of 2,720 francs and will have to pay half the costs of the procedure, announces “Le Courrier”.
This was opened when a confidential report on the expenses of civil servants of the City of Geneva leaked into the press in mid-December 2018. This audit analyzed the expenses of municipal employees and revealed that half of these were non-compliant. The City had lodged a complaint following this leak.
