Do people honestly think he is going to get another job that pays that well?
I am saying that this last punishment was a little uncalled for because it is so late in regards to when this occurred.
Being fired and fined equals spending months locked up in prison?! That's a good one! Gosh, the things you read here...
Also, SO WHAT if he doesn't find another job that is well-paid? I don't get the issue here? As someone ironically said in this thread "poor Galliano who made millions for years"! Probably won't be able to pay the electricity bill and feed his cat!
Finally, contrary to what you seem to think, the decision was not uncalled for. Indeed, according to French Law:
Members convicted of a felony (
in French) are dismissed
from the order. Members convicted of a misdemeanour (
in French) can be dismissed as well.
That decision was to be expected since what he did violates French Law. Not to mention France's history during WWII. While one may find all this completely unfair, it is completely logical and in accord with French Law.
