The Rectorate's shocking letter to the parents of a bullied teenager

«

A failure in the type of response." "A shameful letter". This was the government's reaction to the publication of a lunar letter sent by the rectorate of Versailles to the parents of a teenager who committed suicide at his home in the Yvelines after months of bullying and insults.

How to explain this blindness of the educational community? Such a lack of tact, empathy? The conclusions of the administrative inquiry, which are expected to be delivered within the next 15 days, should say more about the responsibilities of the institution and the institution.

In the meantime, Education Minister Gabriel Attal announced that on Monday he launched "an audit in all rectorates on all harassment situations that were reported to rectorates last year".

THE LATEST ELEMENTS OF THE SURVEY

Yesterday's fact

«

The media will probably not escape a violent backlash," warned the future director of Le Figaro, Alexis Brézet, that day. The archives of Le Figaro

This is the beginning of the end of the ordeal for Dominique Baudis. In its edition of September 18, 2003, Le Figaro reveals that one of the two former prostitutes who accuse the president of the CSA of the worst turpitudes during sexual orgies, confessed to having lied. "I had never seen him before this morning," the woman who goes by the name Fanny told the judge.

It has been six months since Dominique Baudis has been mired in a sordid affair since his name was mentioned in the investigation into serial killer Patrice Alègre. The media hype that followed, with its deluge of rumours, unverified information and slip-ups, is a sad example of the worst that the press and television can do. "The media will probably not escape a violent backlash," warned that day the future director of Le Figaro, Alexis Brézet. Some will not have stolen it, who gave the spectacle of a relentlessness all the more scandalous as it draped itself in the folds of virtue."

On the agenda

Wednesday, September 20: opening of the trial known as "the boiler room of the Defense", a politico-financial case involving bribes. The two main defendants, the former boss of the Charbonnages de France Jean Bonnefont and the former head of Vivendi Bernard Forterre will not, because of their state of health, be tried. The trial will therefore open without them.

Wednesday, September 20: trial at the Paris Criminal Court of a man who said his name was James Jacob Kempiski and who, to deceive women, pretended to be a rich American heir.

Friday, September 22: trial at the Criminal Court of Boulogne-sur-Mer of one of the acquitted of the trial of Outreau Franck Lavier. He will face charges of sexual assault made by his own daughter.

The Culture Council

On September 18, 19, 20 and 21, the Paris Bar is organizing a documentary festival at the Maison du Barreau. Four days of immersion in the heart of French justice where the spectator is carried to the height of judge or lawyer.

On the program: the documentary "In the eyes of judges" by Mathieu Delahousse and Damien Vercaemer, which tells the daily life of magistrates, but also the documentary by Dylan Besseau "Anne Bouillon: justice for all", which plunges us into the daily life of a lawyer from Nantes devoted to the defense of women. Also screened will be "Justice!" by Marion Guégan and Marie Chartronou, a documentary on cases of sexual violence, or "Dangerous in perpetuity?", by Frédérique Lantiéri, which questions life imprisonment. So many instructive stories that give a human face to justice.
