“Before she used to be with boys. I can not do it, I do not accept having a child like that” , he testifies in an immediate appearance hearing before the Nîmes Criminal Court, who judges him to be “threatening of repeated death, committed because of the sexual orientation of the victim”! Acts committed in October 2018, when he learns that his daughter is dating another young woman and until July 14 … That day, he went armed to his daughter’s workplace with a chopper and a butcher knife to get “an explanation”. The victim hid and avoided her father who persecuted her for several months.

“Avant elle fréquentait des garçons. Je n’y arrive pas, je n’accepte pas d’avoir une enfant comme ça”, témoigne-t-il en audience de comparution immédiate devant le tribunal correctionnel de Nîmes qui le juge pour “menace de mort réitérée, commise en raison de l’orientation sexuelle de la victime” ! Des faits commis d’octobre 2018, moment où il apprend que sa fille fréquente une autre jeune femme et jusqu’au 14 juillet dernier… Ce jour-là, il se rend armé d’un hachoir et d’un couteau de boucher pour avoir “une explication” sur le lieu de travail de sa fille. La victime se cache et évite son père qui la persécute depuis plusieurs mois.
