A few days earlier, Mr. Narmino had been forced to leave his position as Minister of Justice of Monaco, under pressure from the revelations of Le Monde, which had reported, on 14 September 2017, extremely embarrassing information for the Monegasque police and judiciary.
"The personal allegations against me and the repeated attacks on the judicial institution no longer allow me to properly take charge of them," Mr. Narmino said.
Le Monde had notably revealed the content of a DVD-Rom given to an investigating judge in Monaco, and thus uncovered hundreds of SMS messages suggesting the existence of an occult network working on behalf of the billionaire Dmitri Rybolovlev, who was struggling with the local courts. In conflict with the Swiss businessman Yves Bouvier, Mr. Rybolovlev allegedly used the services of a lawyer, Tetiana Bersheda, to influence the course of justice. Many texts from smartphones....
He's also got ties with the Trumps. It will be very interesting to see how this will end.
