No details were given on the legal proceedings, however the document did mention that a press conference would be held on Tuesday April 16 at 9h.

As a reminder, as part of an investigation involving the Mayor and three other people, the three Monegasque examining magistrates brought charges of “active bribery of a national public official”, “passive bribery by a national public official”, “active and passive influence peddling”, “unlawful taking of interest by a national public official” and “criminal conspiracy”.

In a statement issued on Monday evening, the Public Prosecutor’s Office explained the terms of the lighter court supervision.

“As part of the legal investigation being carried out by the three Monegasque examining magistrates concerning M. Georges Marsan in particular … The magistrates have … decided to ease the court supervision over M. Marsan and to lift the injunction forbidding him to come into contact with the staff at the Town Hall.”

“He is still facing charges, and is subject to a court supervision order that forbids him to come into contact with a number of people, including traders at the La Condamine market and the Halle de Monaco, places he is not permitted to frequent. The public prosecutor emphasises that M. Marsan is still presumed innocent.”
