France: French activist goes on trial after helping refugees

Martine Landry, a 73-year-old Amnesty International activist, was summoned to a court hearing in Nice on Wednesday for helping refugees cross the border between France and Italy. Landry is charged with having helped two minors to enter France, risking up to five years of imprisonment and a €30,000 ($37,217) fine. She claims that she was only helping them make sense of the situation and that the... Еще minors had refugee status. On 28 July 2017, the Italian police rejected two foreign minors to France. Martine Landry recovered them at the Menton/Ventimiglia border, on the French side, and accompanied them to the border police (PAF), presenting the documents attesting the request for assistance to the ASE, the French institution for social assistance for children. The two minors, both 15-years-old and of Guinean origin, eventually benefitted from ASE’s assistance.
