Emily Spanton Wikipedia, Bio, Wiki, Net Worth, Instagram – A lower court’s decision to dismiss the high-profile case of an Ontario woman who claims she was gang-raped by Paris police inside police headquarters was overruled by the French Court of Appeal on Thursday. The case will now go to trial.
This is simply ‘amazing.’ In an interview from her home in St. Catharines, Emily Spanton said, “It’s big for victims and women’s rights in France. It feels like a significant victory.
A three-judge panel’s unanimous decision means that two Paris police officers from a famed anti-gang brigade will face charges of viol en réunion, or gang rape, related to an encounter that occurred in 2014 while Spanton was visiting Paris. Next year is anticipated to mark the trial’s start.
Howard Rubel, Spanton’s lawyer in Toronto, said, “We’re really happy that the Court of Appeal came to this decision, and came to it unanimously.” “Now, an open court will be able to hear all of the evidence, and a decision will be made on what actually occurred that day in April 2014,” the statement continued.
Spanton, 37, made shocking claims that she was gang-raped by at least two police officers within the historic Paris police headquarters, and a French investigative court immediately initiated a thorough two-year investigation into her claims.
The investigation was concluded last year with a recommendation that charges be filed against two of the police and that the case should go to trial. This recommendation was made in light of incriminating evidence, including an explicit text message from one cop to another demanding.
Weeks later, however, a group of French judges decided to reject the case because they felt there wasn’t enough evidence against the police to justify a trial.
“This is not the end,” Sophie Obadia told the Star last year in reference to Spanton’s French solicitors’ swift appeal of the ruling, which led to Thursday’s decision to bring the matter to trial. According to Rubel, the court has not yet stated any specific justifications for the reversal.
The decision “is obviously very difficult for my client, who was hoping to return to normal life,” according to Sébastien Schapira, the attorney representing one of the two cops from Paris, who made the statement in an email.
“(He) will once more have to deal with varied and baseless claims. Schapira, who previously told reporters his client says he had consensual sex with Spanton, said: “He is still combative and confident about the outcome of the trial.
French media attorneys claim that because to a rule in French law that forbids the identification of police personnel operating in particular units, the names of the two cops who are currently accused of gang raping Spanton cannot be made public.
The policemen, who are now 39 and 48, were members of a prominent anti-gang unit, according to previous reports in French media, and they were suspended as a result of Spanton’s charges.
