IN THE PAPERS
FRENCH PAPERS, Weds. 20/03/13: French papers react to the resignation of Budget Minister Jérôme Cahuzac after a formal investigation was launched to see if he had an illegal bank account in Switzerland. Le Figaro says it would have been impossible for him to stay in the government given that he is in charge of cracking down on tax evaders. Libération says it’s important to remember he’s presumed innocent. And Les Echos applauds François Hollande’s swift action on the matter.
