Libération: Gérard Depardieu is 'pathetic'

Gérard Depardieu's decision to seek tax residency in Belgium is the top story. One paper says he's "pathetic", another looks at his business empire. The problem for France's wealthiest is that a 75 per cent tax band for earnings over one million euros comes into force on 1st January. It'll be in place for two years. Also dominant: DSK. He's settled out of court for millions with Nafissatou Diallo. That's the focus this Tuesday 11th December, 2012.

Libération: 'Pathétique'

Le Figaro: 'Vignes, poissonerie et tableaux...' ('Vineyards, a fishmonger's and art...')

Le Parisien-Aujourd'hui-en-France: 'Depardieu déjà adopté' ('Depardieu already adopted')
