Father arrives in French court for trial over missing daughter's death


Nicolas Chafoulais, whose daughter Fiona was five years old when she died from injuries sustained in 2013, arrives at court in Lyon. The fourth trial of the girl's mother, Cécile Bourgeon and her ex-companion Berkane Makhlouf opens before the Rhône criminal court. Bourgeon and Makhlouf initially reported the child missing before admitting four months later they had killed her and buried the body. In 2016 Makhlouf was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the crime, the mother to five years. The child's body is still missing. IMAGES

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
