Police custody for François Galichet, activist of Ultime Liberté for assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia
In Saint-Laurent-du-Pont in Isère, François Galichet, member of Ultime Liberté, was taken into police custody. His association campaigns for the legalization of assisted suicide. Ten people are in the same situation in France, as part of a vast investigation into the "trafficking" of Pentobarbital. In July 2019, the Pôle Santé Publique du Parquet de Paris entrusted a preliminary investigation to the National Gendarmerie, concerning in particular the import, possession, and illicit use of a substance classified as psychotropic.
The targeted product, Pentobarbital called "Nembutal", banned in France since 1996 for human medicine, is sometimes used by people wishing to end their life.
This is why the courts are closely interested in the members of the Ultime Liberté association, who are campaigning for the legalization of assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia in France. The association claims more than 3,000 members, more than 200 in Isère.
On October 15, 2019, as part of this vast national investigation, 300 judicial police officers had carried out 103 searches and seized 130 vials likely to correspond to the product sought. At the time, we had met a Grenoble member of Ultime Liberté, who had been the subject of a search. Isabelle then explained to us the meaning of her commitment.
François Galichet, member of Ultime Liberté, in police custody : according to our information, the police custody initiated on January 12, 2021 would be carried out at the request of the investigating judge who is continuing the investigation launched last fall. Among the 10 people held in custody today, the Isérois François Galichet, 77, former professor of philosophy at the University, former national vice-president of Ultime Liberté.
He has written extensively on the subject. This is probably why seven OCLAESP investigators have been searching its numerous documents since this morning at the family home in Saint-Laurent-du-Pont. His wife comments on the operation live on the phone: "all his papers are screened as if they were a highwayman. My husband hesitates between humor and exasperation".
She adds, with a smile, that the operation takes place in a courteous manner. Her husband, who has been in custody since 7 a.m. this morning, could spend the night in a cell. "One more experience for him!" she says. Definitely, the militants of Ultimate Freedom take life, like death, with a lot of hindsight.
