They must be heard separately and could be referred to the investigating judge in charge of the case at the criminal department of the Avignon tribunal de grande instance.

No less than 44 people have already been indicted in this extraordinary case.

Two men were also placed under the status of assisted witness.

The victim does not remember anything

It all started on September 12, 2020 when a man was arrested in a Carpentras shopping center, suspected of filming under the skirts of women.

As part of a routine investigation, a police officer then discovered that the 60-year-old's phones and laptops contained something quite different.

Hundreds of images and videos showed his wife being raped while she was asleep.

The latter, aged 66, had no recollection of the facts since her husband did not hesitate to drug her for years.

All the people she was delivered to had been met by her companion on the Internet.
