For the Brichet parents, deliverance

(Archives) In her time, Marie-Noëlle Bouzet was, alongside the parents of Julie and Mélissa, a muse of the white movement which shook Belgium in 1996. She never believed in the thesis of running away or kidnapping of a relative. Today, an expatriate in Quebec, she " don't really want to talk explains his lawyer Jean-Maurice Arnould. " The parents were totally surprised explains their defender. " It was a very brutal shock. It must be said that we have considered so many avenues for fifteen years, that we could believe it was one avenue among others. But since that moment, Tuesday, when the King's prosecutor spoke directly with the parents, there are serious reasons, finally, to believe that the presumed assassin is indeed the one who is imprisoned in Dinant, Michel Fourniret. "Elisabeth's father, divorced from his wife well before the event, and who lives in Belgium is of course " glad it's over. It's fifteen years of ordeal, of questioning the destination of a child ". He sees it as a deliverance, explains his lawyer. However, caution is still called for. The first thing to do, however, is to verify the accuracy of the information, whether the child will be buried in France, near Sedan, is indeed Elisabeth Brichet. It is not enough for a gentleman to say it, it will probably be necessary to carry out genetic checks to be sure. ».
