Covid-19: start of deconfinement in France

A week after the start of school, college and high school students also began to return to their classrooms on Monday, which also sees the end of travel restrictions, the first step in the gradual deconfinement of the country initiated by the government. After two weeks of distance learning, interspersed with two weeks of leave, the high school students return to the half-gauge, with an alternation of face-to-face and remote classes. For secondary schools, the resumption takes place face-to-face, except for 4th and 3rd year students of the fifteen most affected departments. This return to the classroom and the lifting of travel restrictions mark the start of the deconfinement in four stages desired by Emmanuel Macron. Its next stage is scheduled for May 19, with the limited reopening of shops, cinemas, museums, theaters and terraces of bars and restaurants, as well as the postponement of the curfew to 9 p.m. [La crise sanitaire en direct]


Start of the first trial at the assizes of Nordahl Lelandais

Four years after the events, the trial of Nordahl Lelandais for the murder of young corporal Arthur Noyer opened in Chambéry, a long-awaited first appearance for the man already involved in the death of little Maëlys. The first trial of the 38-year-old former soldier, which is to last until around May 12, polarizes the attention of the media and the general public, which the murderous drift of a man without a priori stories confuses and intrigues. The investigation into the disappearance of Arthur Noyer, who died in April 2017, had skated for several months before investigators made the link with the case of the disappearance of Maëlys De Araujo, in the fall of 2017. The two cases have been tried separately, and the trial for the death of the eight-year-old girl could take place in 2022. [Plus d’infos]
