Monaco’s criminal court has heard that a gifted music student from Beausoleil diverted a valuable watch and failed to give it to the intended recipient.
His godfather had asked the young man, now twenty, to hand the watch to his music teacher as a gift. However, the student kept the watch for himself. He was found guilty of a breach of trust and fined €7,000.
The godfather, in his eighties, is very close to the young man’s family and is recognised as his biological father, the court was told.
