International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde has been sent to trial over her handling of a massive state payout to French tycoon Bernard Tapie during her time as finance minister, a legal source said today.

Lagarde had been charged with negligence in the case in which Tapie was awarded more than 400 million euros ($433 million) in a 2008 dispute with the Credit Lyonnais bank over the sale of sportswear giant Adidas in 1993.

Tapie was ordered to pay back the money at the beginning of this month.

    One criminal down.. hundreds to go. Those who control the 'money' control humanity. WASHINGTON, United Nations, Vatican, Royals & Israel are ALL TERRORISTS. Anyone who rids us of this vermin are TRUE PATRIOTS. There will be NO peace until the corrupt are gone. Hoping she ends up in one of the Camps that were built for us.. just toss the key.. we won't need that anymore!

      She's given a script to read and when she deviates from it she gets arrested. She said half as much last year after reading a statement that had occult numerology jargon in it. You can find it on YouTube put her name and occult numerology message in search engine.
