Fillon payment inquiry: What you need to knowBut a source close to Mr Fillon told AFP news agency that the candidate "will not give up". Until the reports emerged, Mr Fillon was the front-runner for the presidential election, thanks in part to his image as a forthright, honest politician. Mr Fillon said he would step down if placed under formal investigation. It subsequently emerged that Mr Fillon had hired two of his children to act as lawyers, paying them 84,000 euros between 2005 and 2007 - when they were students. Tarnished imageMr Fillon, a 62-year-old former prime minister, has denied wrongdoing and strongly defended his wife, Penelope.
