THE STORY OF OUR SPECIAL ENVOY

Yesterday's fact

Le Figaro of February 26, 1994. Le Figaro

It is an explosion on the political scene, a flood of rumors and accusations, a blood crime, quite simply a tragedy.

On February 25, 1994, Var MP Yann Piat was assassinated by two killers on motorcycles on the way to her villa in Hyères.

Aged 44, the elected official was known for her feverish commitment against the corruption which was plaguing her region.

Is this goddaughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen who slammed the door of the National Front with a bang to join the UDF the victim of a villainous murder or of an affair of state?

The investigation will be responsible for extracting the truth from the midst of the fantasies and leads launched by the press.

In the dock, four years later, we find a figure from the local underworld and his “killer babies”.

“Kids” who were not aware of what an MP represented.

“Yann Piat?

I didn’t even know if it was a woman or a man,” one of them admitted.

By our journalist Camille Lestienne.
