Steve's relatives had been waiting for these decisions for two years.
After the divisional commissioner Grégoire Chassaing, it is the former chief of staff of the prefect of Loire-Atlantique, Johann Mougenot who was indicted Thursday for "manslaughter".
They were both in office in June 2019 during the controversial police intervention in Nantes on the occasion of the 2019 music festival.
Nantes town hall questioned
The town hall of Nantes and Nantes Métropole have also been placed under the status of assisted witness as legal persons, just like another commissioner, Thierry Palermo. The town hall of Nantes had been implicated in the death of the extracurricular facilitator due to the absence of barriers on part of the Wilson quay, owned by the Grand Maritime Port, and therefore of the State, where this festival was taking place. A barrier had however been installed nearby, Quai des Antilles, as well as on the parking lot of Quai Wilson.
In all, six natural persons and two legal persons were summoned by the investigating judge in this case by the end of September. In addition to the two police officers and the chief of staff of the prefect, already heard, they are the mayor (PS) of Nantes Johanna Rolland, his former deputy for security Gilles Nicolas and the former prefect of Loire-Atlantique Claude from Harcourt.
