It can be hard to keep track of judicial cases, especially when it involves financial matters like corruption or tax evasion. In France, political scandals are piling up but many citizens might wonder what happens next to the public backlash?

The independent news website Les Jours saw this as an opportunity to decipher the judicial process for each of the most talked-about financial cases currently being investigated by French courts.

They developed a graphic database which highlights the different steps of the procedure, the main suspects and the amount of money at play. And of course, the outlet kept its usual sarcastic tone, dubbing the feature “Le Magouillotron” (you can translate by “Scheme-o-matic”).
