Rémy Daillet and his family were not arrested in connection with the kidnapping of little Mia, but because their visas had expired. Mia, 8, was kidnapped in mid-April at her mother's request by several men while she was staying with her grandmother in a village in the Vosges (eastern France). According to the prosecutor of Nancy (east), Rémy Daillet would have played an important role in the organization of the kidnapping of the child.
In a video posted online after the kidnapping of the girl, Rémy Daillet had tried to defend himself. Without mentioning Mia by name, he refuted the term kidnapping. In other older videos he defended the idea of a popular coup and said he was opposed to taxes, vaccines, masks or 5G. In the Mia case, six men and the girl's mother, close to the anti-system movement and conspirators, were indicted and placed in pre-trial detention.
