LFI deputy Adrien Quatennens was heard on Monday, September 26 at the Lille police station, as part of the investigation for domestic violence against him, his wife having filed a new handrail against him, his lawyer said on Saturday.
Céline Quatennens, whose first handrail had been revealed by the
in mid-September, triggering the case, filed a second recently, said the deputy's lawyer, Jade Dousselin.
She confirmed information from France Info, according to which this approach dates from Saturday September 24, a few days after the opening of an investigation.
“Respect for the secrecy of the investigation” and “search for the truth”
This new daybook "limits itself to evoking SMS sent by my client in the context of their separation", which "does not contain any message of a malicious or threatening nature", specified the lawyer in a press release.
The northern deputy was heard on Monday as part of a free hearing, said a source familiar with the matter, confirming information from the JDD.
“As we had strongly wished, my client was able to speak in the context of the ongoing preliminary investigation in order to restore a certain number of truths and bring enlightening elements to the file”, detailed Me Dousselin to the AFP.
"We hope today that Justice can continue its work while respecting the secrecy of the investigation to ensure its serenity and the search for the truth," she added.
