Let's go back 40 years, to an October evening in 1981.
Judge Pierre Michel was shot three times by motorcycle assassins on boulevard Michelet (in Marseille's 8th arrondissement) as he arrived home, also on a motorcycle.
This magistrate, who had been investigating relations between the Sicilian mafia and the Marseilles milieu, had succeeded in proving that the drug traffickers who, in the 1970s, had set up the French Connection networks, had set up their laboratories in Italy.
"Qui? Police" is a French news weekly, often criticized more for its advertising methods than for its content.
