The anti-terrorist prosecutor’s office has opened a war crimes investigation following the death of the French journalist killed in Ukraine.
The National Anti-Terrorism Prosecutor’s Office (Pnat) announced on Monday the opening of a war crimes investigation after the death of Frédéric Leclerc-Imhoff, a BFMTV journalist killed in eastern Ukraine while accompanying civilians in aboard a humanitarian bus near Severodonetsk.
Already 5 investigations opened by the Pnat since the beginning of the war
The flagrancy investigation entrusted to the Central Office for the Fight against Crimes against Humanity, Genocide and War Crimes (OCLCH) also relates to “the injuries suffered by his colleague Maxime Brandstaetter”, present with him during the report, said the Pnat. At least five other investigations for acts committed against French nationals in Ukraine have been opened by the Pnat since the start of the war.
