He had survived a brutal assassination attempt in 2013. Jean-François Servetto, sentenced in 2016 for criminal association, was killed Wednesday evening at his home in Poghju Mezana, in Haute-Corse.

The shooter allegedly used a long-range weapon.

It was his wife who gave the alert.

An investigation was entrusted by the Bastia prosecutor's office for assassination and entrusted to the research section of the gendarmerie and the judicial police.

“Very unfavorably known to justice”, Jean-François Servetto had been the only survivor of the “Silvareccio massacre” which had killed three people in July 2013. He had been sentenced to six years in prison for criminal association because the he investigation had made it possible to demonstrate that the targets of the assassinations were themselves preparing homicides, further specifies France 3. The man had also been the target of shots in February 2021.
