While the Court of Cassation has decided to overturn the reversal on appeal of Pierre Alessandri’s second request for semi-freedom in 2021, on the side of his lawyers, it is of course satisfaction that reigns.
Maître Eric Barbolosi, who highlights the work done by his colleague Maître Patrice Spinosi on this cassation case, highlights the importance of the reasons given by the Court of Cassation to justify its decision. The notion of “heinous crime”, used by the Court of Appeal, was in particular the trigger for this decision of the Court of Cassation.
From now on, his councils hope to see Pierre Alessandri’s file re-examined by the end of the year.
We listen to Eric Barbolosi.
