French ambassador to Vanuatu

Former French ambassador to Vanuatu spared court

Local television reported that according to the investigators the case won't be pursued, and the matter won't go to court.

The prosecutor said the ambassador's dismissal from his job was an appropriate response for what he had done.

In February, a senior New Caledonian businesswoman Cherifa Linossier lodged a complaint with the French High Commission in Noumea, saying Mr Judes repeatedly accosted and touched her at a function.
