The French government is filing a legal complaint against Orpea SA and wants the elderly care home operator to return millions of euros in public funds it believes were misused.

The government’s move follows two probes into mistreatment that found “serious dysfunctions,” Brigitte Bourguignon, the junior minister for elderly policy, said in an interview Saturday on France Inter radio.
