“We are more determined than ever. The fight continues”, Omar Raddad and his lawyer react to the rejection of the request for revision of the trial

The commission of instruction of the court of revision, seized of a request for revision of the lawsuit of Omar Raddad, considers that the request is not admissible. The 60-year-old Toulonnais was convicted 28 years ago of the murder of Guislaine Marchal in Mougins in 1991, a murder he has always denied.

“We are going to seize the European Court of Human Rights”

“I called Omar Raddad on the phone. He is determined. He knows he is innocent and he cannot imagine that one day we will not be able to prove it. We will go all the way”reacts the gardener’s lawyer Me Sylvie Noachovitch, joined by telephone at the end of the hearing at the Paris courthouse.

“There is a real desire not to revise”

“The fight continues. We are going to seize the European Court of Human Rights which can condemn the State and then we will seize the Court of Revision” continues the defense of Omar Raddad.

“There are four male DNAs mixed with the blood of the victim at the crime scene. On the pretext that we cannot date them and that there is a doubt as to whether they are from pollution or not. [déposés après la mort par des enquêteurs par exemple], the investigating committee considers that the request is not admissible. But it is precisely when there is a doubt that it is necessary to go there. Otherwise there would be no reopening of cold cases. There is a real desire not to revise, that’s clear” reacts Me Noachovitch, scandalized.

She adds: “It was then said that the witness [qui innocente Omar Raddad en 2002 et désigne d’autres suspects Azuréens] is an anonymous witness. It’s wrong. This witness was heard by the gendarmes of the time. She has a name, but she testified on condition of anonymity because she feared reprisals.

The request for review was rejected on Thursday despite the requisitions of the Advocate General who requested, on September 15, the appointment of a laboratory specializing in genetic robot portraits and kinship research in order to determine to whom the DNA belong. unexplained males.
