Saturday evening, Thomas Fabius told agents the disappearance of a Patek Philippe watch estimated at 200,000 euros, a masterpiece and a pearl necklace of which he does not know the value, as well as documents. An investigation was opened by the Paris prosecutor's office, entrusted to the brigade for the suppression of banditry (BRB) of the judicial police.

Trouble with justice

On several occasions in the past, his passion for gambling and for casinos has brought him into trouble with the law. Last year, Thomas Fabius was fined 75,000 euros for "forgery and use of forgery in private writing" and "swindle". He was accused of having written a false transfer order of 200,000 euros addressed to a casino in Marrakech (Morocco) where he had his habits, the Mamounia.

In 2013, after a report by Tracfin, the anti-money laundering cell of the Ministry of Finance, he had been heard by investigators from the central office for repression of serious financial crimes of the central directorate of the judicial police. The police were closely interested in the purchase of his apartment for which he had spent 7.5 million euros ...

On the other side of the Atlantic, in Nevada, an American prosecutor issued an arrest warrant in 2015 against the son of the former Prime Minister whom he accused of having written wooden checks totaling more than $ 3.5 million (approximately $ 3.2 million) at Las Vegas casinos.
