The prosecutor had called for a “severe and exemplary” sentence, it was followed. A craftsman based between Geneva and Lausanne was sentenced Monday to 4 years in prison for abusing the covid credit system. These loans guaranteed by the Confederation were distributed in the spring of 2020 to help companies get through the coronavirus crisis. Having received more than 500,000 francs via two of these loans, while only one was allowed, the man is found guilty of fraud and forgery of titles. He will be expelled from the territory, while the Bentley considered by justice to have been bought with the money from the covid credits will be sequestered and sold.
