“My client, who is being treated for autistic disorders, also considers himself a victim,” says the suspect’s lawyer.

This Thursday evening, Me Morgane Basset – lawyer at the Grenoble bar – gave the version of her client who will remain in police custody until his medical examination on Friday morning.

“He never spoke about LFI”

She states: “My client did not go to the police, he went to the police station to file a complaint in turn. My client, who is being treated for autistic disorders, also considers himself a victim. He claimed that he wanted to play a bad joke on the elected official, when he saw the open trunk and the flyers sticking out that he wanted to steal. His autism is confirmed, he is being treated for that.”

“My client also says that the elected official reacted very strongly to the theft of the posters, brandishing the pasting brush and grabbing him by the hair. A tuft of hair was also added to the file. He also says that he punched to defend himself, and that he is not an LFI sympathizer, that he has never spoken about LFI. He says that his gesture was apolitical. A bad joke that got out of hand. We are therefore far from the first version given. My client intends to file a complaint for violence but also defamation.”
