Several twists

Recall that the case was revealed on June 8 from The Parisian : a couple, Elodie and Laurent, denounce the illegal occupation of their 70-meter pavilion2 recently purchased for € 140,000 in Ollainville. On May 19, this couple claims they signed the deed of ownership with the notary and received the keys to their new home. Arriving at the scene, they say they noticed that the house was occupied by a family – that of Saber B. The couple assure that they are not aware of this illegal occupation. The article by Parisian however, he specifies that the notarial deed referred to an occupation without right or house title.

First twist on June 9th. In the morning, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin and the Minister for Ecological Transition, Amélie de Montchalin, are moved by the couple’s story, sharing the video of the report of the Parisian on your Twitter account, denouncing a “Unacceptable situation” and asking “immediately to the prefect of Essonne to commit […] rapid evacuation of illegal occupants “. Formal notice is taken during the day to evict the occupying family within 48 hours. But on the same day, BFMTV, in an on-site appraisal, states that the couple knew full well that the house was occupied at the time of purchase. The couple ends up confessing that they lied to Parisian.

Second turning point on 10 June : The Parisian reveals that the family occupying the house was attacked by masked people as they left the premises at midnight on 9 June. While the gendarmerie had just served the warning, Saber B., his wife and their children, aged 4 to 16, were taken in charge as they loaded their belongings onto the truck. People spray them with tear gas and beat them with sticks. The truck was damaged, the cockpit and interior of the house sprayed with tear gas. The family occupying the premises also revealed to BFMTV that they bought the house for 120,000 euros in cash, presenting a document that should prove it. However, for the mayor of the city Jean-Michel Giraudeau, questioned by RMC, this title deed “it had no legal value“.

Also on June 10th The Parisian he publishes an apology to his readers, regretting being misled by the couple.

Third turning point on June 14: RTL reveals that the “victim” couple, Elodie and Laurent, have been indicted since October 22, 2021 for “Drug trafficking, illicit possession of category B and C weapons and participation in a criminal association aimed at preparing a crime” and currently under judicial control. If found guilty, they face up to ten years in prison for these offenses.

Me Maktouf, Saber’s lawyer. B now intends to file a claim for the property so that Saber B. reclaims the accommodation. A request that, however, has little chance of success. Asked by The Parisian Laurent certainly has no intention of leaving the house.
