Nantes Cathedral’s Arson: African Arrested after Confession
by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio
Arrested on Saturday morning, 25 July, the diocese volunteer confessed yesterday evening to the investigating judge’s office who was accusing him of “damage, deterioration or destruction of the property of others because of the no”. France 2 writes it in reference to the fire that damaged various parts of the Cathedral of Nantes named after Saints Peter and Paul.
The African migrant, according to the statements of his lawyer, said he was panicked for fear of not being able to obtain the renewal of the residence permit and so, instead of asking for help from the Diocese that assisted him, he meticulously planned the stake in the Christian temple on July 18.
Not a fire started out of anger but three trigger points studied with ingenious to do as much damage as possible to the wonderful Gothic church designed by the architect Guillaume de Dammartin and Mathurin Rodier, whose work began in 1434 and was completed only a few centuries later in 1821. The church was later closed to worship despite the consequences being much less serious than the Notre Dame of Paris stake on April 15, 2019.
The migrant had been arrested and interrogated but had not said anything and the Gendarmerie, with a little ease, had immediately released him, although the absence of signs of intrusion on the doors indicated him as the main suspect due to being in possession of the church keys . After a week he would have been seized with remorse and confessed. Now he faces a ten-year sentence for arson.
“My client collaborated,” told the local newspaper Presse-Océan Quenin Chabe, Emmanuel’s lawyer, the Rwandan, 39yo who – as a volunteer from the diocese – had been given the task of closing the cathedral the night before the flames exploded.
“In remorse,” Emmanuel “admitted to the investigating judge and confirmed the Nantes prosecutor Pierre Sennès – that he had turned on the three triggers in the cathedral, near the large organ, the small organ and an electricity meter” .
The arsonist is a Rwandan refugee who has been in France for some years. According to the cathedral rector, Hubert Champenois, Emmanel “served mass” and was often in charge of cleaning or closing the cathedral. He had been arrested on the day of the fire ON July 18th, then released the following day.
In fact, it seems that in recent months the Rwandan was very upset about the difficulties in obtaining the renewal of the residence permit in France.
It was the volunteer’s lawyer who claimed that the Rwandan was in difficulty with the renewal of his residence permit to stay in France and added that his client was “full of remorse” and that the confession was “a release”.
After the serious fire that occurred inside the cathedral of the city of north-western France on July 18. Pierre Sennès, the prosecutor of the Republic of Nantes, had announced that the investigators had found “three fire triggers”, one next to the organ and the other two on the sides of the nave. “It is not the result of chance – he added explicitly -, the three triggers were quite far from each other”.
The suspicion that it was “used” by some underworld clan intent on destroying a symbol of Christianity in France will obviously remain latent and probably never ascertainable
France is increnot only by multiculturalism but by radical Sunni Islam that, through the Muslim Brotherhood of Turkey is sending ISIS Jihadists to Italy and Europe thanks to the boats of migrants leaving Libya every day.
In fact, in recent years many other bonfires in Christian churches have been added to the mysterious and devastating fire of Notre-Dame in Paris, some of which are attributed precisely to Muslim extremists.
A violent fire on 15 June 2015 had already destroyed the roof of the basilic of Saint Donatien et Saint Rogatien, in Nantes.
