He was not living in France anymore and was not unemployed either, but he provided fake documents with the help of his wife. Nenad Kovacevic has been sentenced to 12 months of prison including 6 months of suspended prison, a fine of 30 000 euros, and the reimbursement of the amount unduly received together with his ex-wife.
