“We go from a normal life to a life in hospitals”

“It unfortunately turned their daily lives upside down. There is always permanent medical monitoring”explained lawyer Richard Legrand, Thursday, May 26, at the microphone of RTL. “We go from a normal life to a life in hospitals, it’s still dramatic, especially for children but also for adults who have to review their professional careers”, he regretted. The plaintiffs are families whose children were poisoned by eating frozen brand pizzas.

“There is a lot of damage. I am waiting for all the light to be shed on this case and for the perpetrators to be tried and sentenced in the long term”, added Me Legrand, who hopes to obtain compensation for his clients. A judicial inquiry has been open since May 12.
