French court convicts 14 in Air France executives’ ripped-shirt case

A French court has convicted 14 current and former Air France workers of taking part in violence during a union protest last year at the airline's headquarters that saw two company executives flee over a fence with their shirts ripped off, reports AP.

The images of the shirtless managers spread around the world and came as an extreme example of the often-tense labour relations in France.

The judges outside Paris on Wednesday sentenced three men to three-to-four month suspended terms for aggravated assault. Eleven were given a 500-euro ($530) fine for property damage. Two people were acquitted.

All were facing up to three years in prison and a 45,000-euro ($48,000) fine.

The violence erupted in October 2015 as executives were announcing nearly 3,000 job cuts during a union meeting.
