To return to the situation of the people arrested in Bonabèri, the daily newspaper Le Jour indicates that some of them have been released. " As people bring in NICs from people who are arrested, they are released immediately. In the cell there are only people rounded up for drug possession and consumption , "said a colleague in the columns of a policeman.
