The collector Pierre-Jean Chalençon and the chef Christophe Leroy were placed in police custody this Friday morning as part of the investigation into illegal dinners for “endangering the lives of others and covert work”, reports BFM TV. This summons is held the day after a search of the Vivienne Palace, owned by Pierre-Jean Chalençon. The home of chef Christophe Leroy was raided on Wednesday.
The two men are suspected of having organized one or more illegal dinners, following the broadcast of a report by M6, almost a week ago. In this report, an anonymous witness, identified later as Pierre-Jean Chalençon, also claimed to have had dinner recently during such events, “with ministers”.
