An American observer comments on French politics.
Could it be that, used to scary tactics by non democratic police forces in her native Guinea, when the ADAs used what the NYT called "very tough questioning", she just tried to tell them what they wanted so that they'd stop? When dealing with people used to nondemocratice police forces (where lies the police want to hear are seen as preferable to the truth) one must use caution - especially when their knowledge of the language is, by all accounts, rudimentary. We did know 5 days ago already that there was only a 2mn discrepancy anyway.
If the woman did lie before a grand jury, she should be prosecuted. Being from Guinea is not an excuse.
