Traumatized, MP Sandrine Josso gives her version of the Guerriau affair
The story delivered on France 5 by Sandrine Josso is chilling. Saying she is still "in post-trauma," the MNA, who accuses Senator Joël Guerriau of having drugged her in order to sexually assault her, spoke publicly for the first time Monday night. "I thought I was going to die of a heart attack. I thought I was going to die because I thought he was going to abuse me. " she revealed. Joël Guerriau has since been arrested and charged. According to his lawyer, the senator had felt unwell the day before the incident because of the death of his cat and the meeting of a friend who was sick with cancer. "We never talked about that at the party," said Sandrine Josso, doubting this version.
Identification of suspects underway after fatal brawl in Drôme
It is a terrible tragedy that shakes a village in the Drôme. Suspects are "in the process of being identified" after the brawl in which Thomas, a 16-year-old boy, was fatally wounded on Saturday night in front of the village hall in Crepol. About fifty witnesses have already been heard by the gendarmes and as many have yet to be heard. The tragedy sparked an avalanche of violent reactions from the ultra-right on social media. These accounts are calling for mobilization for the white march scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Romans-sur-Isère, where young Thomas' high school is located. Evoking a "despicable and unacceptable" act, the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin said Monday night on the set of the program "C à vous" of France 5 that these facts were a phenomenon of "savagery".
