Complex situation at CNRS concerning Anne Peyroche and "data manipulation"

"For Better Science" has a post Anne Peyroche removed as interim CNRS President as her publications are “questioned” which illustrates the complexity of the Peyroche matter, which is also discussed in an article by Ashley Yeager at TheScientistDaily [which notes: Evidence of possible data manipulation in Peyroche’s papers was first published last November on PubPeer, a website that lets users critique published research.] The investigation of Peyroche is by the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA).

Wikipedia notes of Peyroche:

In October 2015, she was appointed Deputy Director of Research Firm. On January 15, 2016, she was appointed Deputy Director General for Science of the CNRS 3 . On October 24, 2017, she was appointed acting president of the CNRS, replacing Alain Fuchs 4 . On January 19, 2018, she was the subject of an internal investigation at the CEA following the observation made in November 2017 of suspicion of manipulations in the figures of five of her scientific articles. The computer scientist Antoine Petit is appointed to replace it at the head of the CNRS
