(Telecompaper) The Paris criminal court ruled that France Telecom (now Orange) and three former company executives were guilty of moral harassment in a trial over their role in a wave of employee suicides during 2007 and 2008. In a statement, Orange said that it would not be appealing against the ruling, under which the company has been ordered to pay a EUR 75,000 fine. Former CEO Didier Lombard and two other executives have each received a one-year prison sentence, of which eight months are suspended, alongside a EUR 15,000 fine. According to the French press, Lombard will be appealing against the decision.
