A cruel lack of humanity

The leader explained yesterday, in the columns of Parisian, having suffered with his ex-wife and his son Thomas, from a serious lack of humanity, the night of Antoine’s accident. “We arrived at the Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Paris. A gloomy room, with a dilapidated chair. We were handed a piece of paper, the contact of a person in case we needed psychological support. And then that’s all. Not even a glass of water. At 3 o’clock in the morning, we all three left on our own. The next day you want to see your child. It’s happening at the forensic institute, a sordid building behind the Gare de Lyon. You see your kid behind glass“, he said.
