He announces it himself. The mayor of Compiègne Philippe Marini confessed this Tuesday July 19 to his own indictment in “the Paprec affair“. This procedure is linked to the legal challenges of Jean-Luc Petithuguenin, boss of Paprec. The head of the waste collection and recycling company was indicted for “favoritism”, “corruption” and “unlawful agreement”. Justice accuses him of having paid funds for a horse show organized by the wife of Philippe Marini. All up to 10,000 then 15,000 euros.
Investigators are wondering about a possible consideration: obtaining a public contract for the Villers-Saint-Paul waste recovery center, near Creil. This incinerator is managed by the SMDO, the main inter-municipal waste management union in the Oise department, whose president is a certain Marini Philippe.
“No suspicion of personal enrichment was expressed.”

And to clarify: no suspicion of personal enrichment was expressed.»
