Eric Dupond-Moretti is suspected of using his position to do away with judges he had opposed when he was a lawyer, his council announced Monday.
“Unfortunately, as we expected, it was a dismissal order that was issued by the instructional commission (note: from CJR). We immediately filed a cassation appeal against this decision.

It is the first time that a sitting minister has been referred to court.
