What happened for Yvan Colonna to die after an attack in prison?
It is to this question that the deputies will try to answer, after the vote, this Wednesday, on the creation of a commission of inquiry.
This will be “responsible for shedding light on the dysfunctions within the prison administration and the judiciary”.
Created on the initiative of the deputy of Haute-Corse Jean-Félix Acquaviva (Liot), the commission of inquiry will have to examine in particular the conditions of detention of the alleged murderer, Franck Elong Abé, but will not be able "to carry out its investigations on issues falling within the exclusive competence of the judicial authority”, warned Caroline Abadie (Renaissance), rapporteur of the text creating the commission.
Yvan Colonna was serving a life sentence in Arles prison (Bouches-du-Rhône) for the assassination of the prefect Claude Erignac when he was violently attacked on March 2 by a fellow prisoner.
He died of his injuries in hospital on March 21.
