In his book Either I Earn or I Learn (Plon) to appear on November 14, the lawyer Alain Jakubowicz evokes his client, the alleged murderer Nordahl Lelandais.
"It appeared to me as a kind of lost, fruit of our time and our society. Apart from his passion for dogs and motorcycles, nothing seemed to interest him, describes Alain Jakubowicz. I asked him about his interests. The desert, or almost. (…) At 36, he had almost failed everything."
The 66-year-old lawyer, who participated in the three major trials related to the Occupation (those of Klaus Barbie, Paul Touvier and Maurice Papon), then discusses the reconstitution of the murder of Maelys, who did not leave it marble. "The man was in front of us. The little girl replaced by a big rag doll. All eyes converged on the cabin of the car, this Audi, the only witness of what had happened. Concentrated, he knew what was expected of him. He had to reproduce, as faithfully as possible, the gestures that had been his in this vehicle at this precise moment of the night. What we witnessed was, I am sure, all those who were present. For my part, I did not imagine that it was possible to to carry the blows with such violence in the position he was in. The audience will, when the time comes, to say how and why. for the moment, I was paralyzed. I could not help but think of the girl's parents who were a few feet away from me"recalls Nordahl Lelandais' lawyer.
