The prosecutor of the Paris suburb of Bobigny requested 10 months probation for the French director for the dismissal of assistant Sophie F., who was on sick leave.
In January 2018, Besson fired his assistant, accusing her of falsifying the sick-list. Sophie stated that this dismissal is discrimination.
According to lawyer Sophie F., she is "tired of the harassment she has been subjected to for several years."
The court will announce its decision on January 8, 2020.
