Illegal migrant responsible for French bus driver’s cruel death

Four illegal immigrants were responsible for the savage assault and death of a French bus driver in Bayonne, in the south of France. Philippe Monguillot, 58 years old and father of three, had his head kicked in and deformed for simply having pointed out to the African migrants that they were violating the law.

    The HLM office of the Basque Country Urban Community, Habitat Sud Atlantique, had launched a procedure in early December for one of the illegals to leave the premises in which he had been squatting.

    Lausséni Sangaré, the managing director told news outlet France Bleu that “we have also learned that this individual was in an irregular situation on French territory”. He was described as a regular drug user and “aggressive”.

    On LCI, Philippe Monguillot’s wife said she was concerned about the fact that this horrendous killing took place in her “small town in the Basque country” which has always been “jovial, friendly, touristy”. She added: “If things like that happen in Bayonne it can happen anywhere.”

    Véronique Monguillot also wanted to thank all the people who have shown their support with the white march organised as a tribute to her husband. “I would never have enough time in my life to thank them, it’s millions of thanks that I owe them”, she confided. The white march was dignified, quiet and took place without rioting, remarked pundit Damied Rieu.

    More than forty-eight hours after the tragedy, Véronique Monguillot’s sadness gave way to anger. She told regional daily la Provence: “Today I cry a lot less. I have an anger and a hatred in me […] It is really necessary that justice realizes the seriousness which is extreme and that it punishes this inhuman act to the maximum.”

    About 6 000 people dressed in white took part in a march on July 8, in a march led the victim’s wife and three daughters.

    The two main suspects, two Africans aged 22 and 23, were charged with attempted murder and were imprisoned. These two suspects were already known to the police. French weekly Le Point reported. Two other illegal individuals were also indicted. They are Mohammed A, Mohammed C, Moussa C and Sélim Z.
