According to his wife, the former mayor of Levallois-Perret would still suffer from pulmonary effusions and heart failure. Patrick Balkany has been hospitalized several times in the past few months, particularly in August and October 2020, she recalled of a column published on the occasion, in which she made the connection between his health and his legal setbacks.
It actually describes “months of suffering and weariness” for him and “months of fear (…) and anger” for her. Remember that Patrick Balkany has been wearing an electronic bracelet like his wife since March 10th. He was sentenced to three years in prison and ten years in law in 2009 before being released on health grounds five months later.
The spouses in the Balkans remain at risk of being convicted of money laundering, tax evasion and illicit interests.
