“How can we say what really happened when everyone only sees part of things?” The suggestion, which mainly concerns the motive, escapes from the pleadings of Me Camille Romani, lawyer for Philippe Chassot.

This 66-year-old man who looks ten years older, notably due to recurrent cancer, was sentenced to 13 years of criminal imprisonment by the Assize Court of Corsica-du-Sud in Ajaccio for the murder of his wife, Catherine Guenot, on August 12, 2021 in Porto-Vecchio.

On the stand, his last words were aimed at his children: “I love all my children”. He also expresses regrets, first of all, that of having “destroyed their lives”.

Lives that were scrutinized for three days, lives torn apart just like the family.

Safety period abandoned

At the beginning of the afternoon, the Attorney General, Alexandre Apel, had requested the same sentence with a two-thirds security period, which implies that the accused could not have made any request for release. during this period of time. A security period abandoned by the court.

Alexandre Apel, as soon as he spoke, put the church back in the center of the village, recalling that the victim of this trial was Catherine Guenot. He thus dismisses the dark portrait of Philippe Chassot’s wife drawn over two days. Me Saveriu Felli, the lawyer for the civil party – one of the couple’s daughters – has also undertaken to erase this picture, like his client before him.

“The court, in its great wisdom, was able to take into account the seriousness of the facts and the personality of the accused”, indicated Me Romani when pronouncing the verdict. An appeal of this decision therefore seems excluded.
