Pascal bail plea adjourned
The bail plea of French consulate employee Pascal Mazurier, which came up for hearing at the I Fast Track Court on Monday, was adjourned to July 11.
Mazurier was arrested on June 14 after his wife Suja Jones lodged a complaint accusing him of raping their four-year-old daughter.
Meanwhile, the City police have written back to the DNA lab seeking clarifications in the DNA report that they feel has certain ambigious and vague sections not conclusively pinning down Mazurier.
Letter to French envoy
Meanwhile, Suja Jones wrote to the French ambassador in India on Monday, saying that the French consulate chief Vincent Caumontat, who was supposed to remain neutral in the case, had not been so.
She said the consulate officials and the French expatriate community were biased in the case and were defending Pascal.
Suja noted that she was being discriminated against as she was an Indian national and had made accusations against and brought disrepute to a “true French”. She said that her tormented daughter was also a French national.
In the letter, Suja said Pascal had changed the access codes of her Indian and French bank accounts when he was in the custody of the consulate. She said she had been denied money, leading to a financial crisis.
The letter says she is unable to send her children to school and to pay for the treatment of her daughter. Suja has requested the French ambassador to look into the matter immediately and help her out.
