We thank you for this. However, we are no longer sure that this case is still a priority for France, as you said it was during that meeting.Despite exemplary work by the French judges in charge of this case, their investigation has encountered many obstacles arising from the fact that leading Ivorian figures are named in this case.Mr. President, you are more than ever the person who can offer us hope of finding out what happened to Guy-André. You have demonstrated an ability to intervene positively in the most delicate international matters. This case will not be solved without significant political help from you.With just days to go to this sad anniversary, we therefore urge you to again make this case one of your priorities by interceding with the Ivorian authorities and getting them to finally do what is necessary for the truth to emerge. They could give a clear signal of goodwill by satisfying one of the main requests being made by all the civil parties to the case, which is to hand the leading witness, Michel Legré, over to the French judicial authorities.Sincerely,Canelle and Sébastien KiefferGuy-André Kieffer’s childrenJean-François JulliardReporters Without Borders Secretary-GeneralAline RichardCommittee for the Truth about Guy-André KiefferFirmine RichardOrganisation of People from OverseasFor Guy-André KiefferFrançoise LoeilletGuy-André Kieffer Breton Support Committee Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire October 29, 2020 Find out more to go further RSF_en News April 8, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to President Sarkozy about French journalist who disappeared five years ago October 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
