Journalists du Monde summoned Tuesday in a forum their new shareholder Daniel Kretinsky to "guarantee their independence" by giving them a say on changes in capital control.

One of the two majority shareholders, Xavier Niel, signed this right Monday. Virtually all Le Monde journalists now ask the other majority shareholder Matthieu Pigasse and "his new partner, Daniel Kretinsky, to co-sign this agreement", "a prerequisite for the opening of discussions" on the level of participation of the Czech billionaire in the second national daily.
