PARIS, FRANCE (DECEMBER 20, 2019) (REUTERS) FRANCE TELECOM FORMER CHIEF EXECUTIVE, DIDIER LOMBARD, ARRIVING IN COURT FOR SENTENCING POLICE OUTSIDE COURTROOM PEOPLE ENTERING COURTROOM SIGN OUTSIDE COURTROOM TWO MEMBERS HELPING VICTIMS ENTERING COURTROOM FRANCE TELECOM, NOW ORANGE, WORKERS OUTSIDE COURTROOM ORANGE LOGO ORANGE STORE ENTRANCE VARIOUS EXTERIORS OF COURTROOM WITH POLICE PEOPLE OUTSIDE COURTROOM AFTER SENTENCING (SOUNDBITE) (French) HEAD OF ORANGE WORKERS' UNION CFE-CGC, SEBASTIEN CROZIER, SAYING: "It's been ten years since we started this fight in court to come to the sentencing for institutional moral harassment of all of the executives of the time, of their accomplices and the company. We are therefore extremely satisfied with the sentencing. (MARKING PAUSE) It's the emotion. It's... The sentencing won't bring our colleagues back." VARIOUS OF SON OF FRANCE TELECOM EMPLOYEE WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE, RAPHAEL LOUVRADOUX, SPEAKING TO MEDIA (SOUNDBITE) (French) SON OF FRANCE TELECOM EMPLOYEE WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE, RAPHAEL LOUVRADOUX, SAYING: "I, my mother, my brothers and sister are satisfied and relieved. We're satisfied because of what the president of the court said. She said that the procedures used by the management was forbidden. and that brings an answer to what this trial is about: Can anyone be allowed to do that kind thing, can anyone do that in order to save cash, to push people to commit suicide or into depression? At least the court has said, 'No, it's not possible and if you do that you'll be convicted.'" (SOUNDBITE) (French) SON OF FRANCE TELECOM EMPLOYEE WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE, RAPHAEL LOUVRADOUX, SAYING: "We have said from the start that the proportionate response to what happened at France Telecom, serious stuff, clearly is a prison sentence. And beyond what happened and how the law punishes that, there's a simple question. Things like that should not happen. No one should be pushed to commit suicide in order to sack people and make money. But the reason why Didier Lombard and the other defendants allowed themselves to do that is because they felt they couldn't be prosecuted. And in order end this impunity, there is no other way than to take away their freedom. If you don't put them in jail, they'll continue what they've been doing. Didier Lombard clearly said it during the proceedings, he didn't feel any remorse. If those people don't feel remorse for what they do, they'll do it again." LAWYER FOR VICTIMS, JEAN-PAUL TEISSONNIERE (SOUNDBITE) (French) LAWYER FOR VICTIMS, JEAN-PAUL TEISSONNIERE, SAYING: "In this case, we had management methods that didn't comply with regulations and the law, and with this decision, we now understand how employees should be treated and it's a token that the wrongdoings in the France Telecom affair will not happen again." LAWYER LISTENING (SOUNDBITE) (French) LAWYER FOR VICTIMS, JEAN-PAUL TEISSONNIERE, SAYING: "We had many examples during the proceedings, but for instance, one was calculating the managers' salaries according to the number of redundancies. There are other examples and I won't get into details as the court did so but of course there were methods that were obviously toxic and that were systematically leading to true disaster in a company with 120,000 employees. That's what happened. And I think that the sentencing takes the measure of what happened and tells us the way we can avoid such wrongdoings." LAWYER FOR LOMBARD, JEAN VEIL, SPEAKING TO MEDIA (SOUNDBITE) (French) LAWYER FOR FORMER FRANCE TELECOM CHIEF EXECUTIVE DIDIER LOMBARD, JEAN VEIL, SAYING: "This is a politically motivated decision, one that is completely demagogic. The judges tried to please themselves, I regret that. It's not their role. They're here to hand out justice and not just do politics. We were not in a rally. We were dealing with a serious case and I have to say I'm quite shocked at how the court dealt with it."
