Final dismissal of the case
National law

In 2006, several groups from Martinique and Guadeloupe filed a complaint for poisoning, endangering the lives of others and administering a harmful substance. Since 2008, the public health unit of the Paris judicial court has been in charge of a judicial investigation. On November 24, 2022, the Public Prosecutor's Office issued its final recommendation to dismiss the case. According to him, the facts of poisoning could not receive the legal qualification of poisoning and would be prescribed. On January 2, 2023, the investigating judges dismissed the case. The applicants will appeal this judgment.
