[ Précédente ] [ Remonter ]
I am 22 years old and studying law. In my opinion this trial is very needed but I
am not satisfied with the way it's handled, considering that mister Papon is not in prison
during the process. When a person is accused of a bank robbery he/she most probably waits
for the judgement behind the bars but a crime against humanity is not that horrible? C'est
pas grave, non?
If the process continues like this, the picture of France as a civilized country
will fade away in many people's eyes. France, the pioneer of democracy and European
current law system, the cradle of culture, can really be ashamed of itself. The stability
of the state is based on people's opinion about the politics and before all, about the
justice. So the danger is the world's reaction : Who can we trust if not the European
trial tradition with the idea of objective judges with humanity?
Montesquieu would turn in his grave!
I would like to believe that such a thing wouldn't happen again.
From the very cold winter of Finland, warm hugs and a lot of courage to all of you!
