Legal proceedings opened for "manslaughter and involuntary injury
In the wake of the fire on Avenue Princesse-Grace, which claimed the life of a Monaco firefighter, judicial proceedings have been opened for "manslaughter and involuntary injury".
The investigation is being conducted by the Public Security Department, under the supervision of the Monaco Public Prosecutor's Office.
In the Principality, the sadness is immense. And messages are pouring in to pay tribute to Sergeant Thierry Perard, 52, who died while responding to a raging fire that ravaged a 400m² flat in the "Le 21" residence on Avenue Princesse-Grace.
At this stage, no judicial investigation has been opened. But it is not excluded that an investigating judge is seized in the next few days.
The first findings began this Monday at noon in this vast flat where a woman of almost 100 years of age lived. Experts from the inter-regional laboratory of the scientific police in Marseille were sent to the scene to determine the origin of the fire and the causes that led to the death of the firefighter.
