The examining magistrate in charge of the investigation targeting Gerald Darmanin for “rape” pronounced the end of the investigations in early September without indicting the Minister of the Interior, directing the case to a dismissal, according to two close sources of the file cited by AFP, thus confirming information from Mediapart.
