Dominique Leroy was appearing before the council chamber on Tuesday to propose a criminal transaction negotiated with the Brussels prosecution in his insider trading case. The president, Jean Coumans, however, did not approve the transaction, reserving his decision until July 15.
Contacted by L’Echo, spokesman for the Brussels public prosecutor’s office, Denis Goeman “confirms the conclusion of a criminal transaction after an agreement was reached between Ms. Leroy and the public prosecutor’s office. It was submitted this Tuesday, June 30 to the council chamber for approval.
However, the magistrate “cannot confirm the amount of the transaction insofar as the role of the council chamber is to verify that this amount respects the legality well”, he continues. Also contacted, Dominique Leroy, did not respond. His lawyer, Jean-Pierre Buyle, for his part, did not wish to make any comments.
At the end of this transaction, Dominique Leroy therefore puts an end to this legal case which cost him his post as CEO at KPN which she was to join. She has not admitted guilt and her criminal record will remain blank. On the other hand, and in agreement with the FSMA, the stock market policeman, who was closely linked to trading, a transactional settlement was signed.
