Paris shootings survivor sues French media
A man who escaped the Charlie Hebdo shooters is suing French media who uncovered his whereabouts.
Lilian Lepere stayed under a sink for eight hours after the shooters started an attack at the printing shop in which he worked in a Paris suburb in January.
The men – Said and Cherif Kouachi – had killed 12 individuals at the Charlie Hebdo magazine the day preceding, and were later shot dead at the printing shop.
Mr Lepere says his life was jeopardized by subtle elements uncovered on TV and radio.
The underlying claim of a man covering up at the industrial facility in Dammartin en Goele was made on the RMC radio station by the range’s French get together part, Yves Albarello.
The case was then rehashed by the TF1 and France 2 TV stations, two of France’s biggest.
Mr Lepere’s whereabouts were additionally affirmed to France 2 by his sister, despite the fact that it was never expressed precisely where he was stowing away.
After Mr Lepere’s supervisor was liberated by the shooters, he kept on stowing away under the sink until the attack finished.
He held up an objection with prosecutors in Paris a month ago, and an examination against the systems was propelled a week ago, French media say.
“The uncovering of data progressively, while the Kouachi siblings – equipped and hazardous – could take after how the operation was going, introduced a genuine danger to Lilian,” his attorney, Antoine Casubolo Ferro, told Le Parisien daily paper.
The systems have not reacted to the examination.
In April, another claim was held up by survivors of an attack at a Jewish market in Paris, that occurred two days after the Charlie Hebdo slaughter.
Shooter Amedy Coulibaly slaughtered four individuals at the Hypercacher Jewish store on 9 January before police shot him.
Six of the survivors documented a claim against telecom companies, saying live pictures telecast from the market scene “did not have the most essential insurances”.
