"

"This is what we are talking about, and nothing else," said the president. "The goal of this approach, which aims to protect the interests of the community, is not to place any mistrust on SEMSAMAR, But rather to enable the Collective to be directly and truly informed of the factors which have justified the investigation of it. It is also a matter for the Collective to assert its will that all transparency be made at the end of the current investigation. All of us here, together, have a duty to take all necessary measures to ensure transparency and safeguarding the public interest in all circumstances. "

Semsamar director Marie-Paule Bélénus Romana and former director Jean-Paul Fisher are subject to a criminal investigation under three offenses retained by the public prosecutor's office: Illegal detention (Art 432-12), embezzlement of public or private funds (art 432-15) and favoritism (art 432-15).
