(the names of the victims have been changed)

. Paul's wife, who died of testicular cancer that he had treated only on the basis of purges and fasting following the recommendations of his naturopath, Miguel B., detailed his grievances as well as the messages between the deceased and his naturopath, whose practice is located in Cachan (Val-de-Marne), who encouraged him not to resort to conventional medicine.

Entrusted to the brigade for the repression of delinquency against the person, this case opened for "manslaughter" was finally presented to the court during a hearing on September 10 for "illegal practice of medicine" and "usurpation of a title. »(The deliberation is expected this Friday).

“And again, I had to fight so that we add a second family of victims that everyone had forgotten, sighs Me Manuel Abitbol, ​​representing the civil parties.

This naturopath could also have been prosecuted for


, or

abuse of weakness


But we will not stop there, we will seize an examining magistrate.

Because how many victims have been forgotten by investigators?


The authenticity of the certificates has not been verified

At the hearing, the investigation was tackled by all the magistrates. "We are going to talk about this procedure and its shortcomings," said the judge at the start of the debates. "Concerning the potential enrichment, via the companies selling products, there were not many investigations", continued the president of the court, before being faced with two American diplomas provided by the naturopath who affirms be able to be called "doctor" since he holds the equivalent of a doctorate.

“At no time in the procedure was the authenticity of the certificates verified.

No more than their equivalence in France, ”sighed the judge.

Contacted, the two universities confirmed to us a few days ago that Miguel B. had indeed obtained these two degrees "allowing him to be a doctoral student, but in no case to practice medicine".

“How can you judge someone for

illegally practicing medicine

without hearing their patients? »Criticizes Me Guillaume Martine, who defends the naturopath. Because the only patient questioned by the police is… Paul's friend, mentioned by Camille in her letter. However, more than 600 names appear on the agenda of Miguel B. who was still organizing internships this week.

Contacted, the Paris prosecutor's office did not wish to comment on this controversy.

At the hearing, the prosecutor considered that it was "difficult to establish certain causality in the occurrence of the death".

But that was before he knew there were at least three other victims.

Because our investigations have just shown that the families of at least four victims believe that the meeting with Miguel B. prevented their relatives from being cured of cancer.

All have filed a complaint or are preparing to do so.
