At the Millas trial, the expectation of justice for victims "already condemned"

"I am here to lay before you the pain" of this young girl, who suffers from "indelible scars that will accompany her throughout her life", pleaded master Hélène Castello-Picard, stressing that her client, amputee of the right leg as a result of the accident, was a "victim already sentenced to life".

"On December 14, 2017 at 4:07 p.m.", her life "will brutally change into horror", she added, stressing that the teenager, then aged 13, was also, by virtue of her privileged position in the first row of the bus, "an essential witness".

The driver, Nadine Oliveira, 53, is the only defendant in this trial. Tried for homicide and involuntary injuries, she has been absent from the hearings since September 22 following her hospitalization. Six children died in the accident at a level crossing, seventeen others were injured, eight of them seriously.

"On the fact that the barriers were closed, it is out of the question to question his testimony, quite simply because other witnesses said the same thing", insisted the lawyer, before adding: "For for me, it's clear, clean, precise".

"I remain convinced that this dramatic accident (...) is none other than the result of the distraction, the inattention of Nadine Oliveira, who crossed the level crossing without having been able to notice that the barriers were lowered", completed Me Castello-Picard.

"Because of the consequences" of the collision, "I understand that Nadine Oliveira is trying to escape her responsibility. The families of the victims cannot hear her", continued the lawyer, her voice often overcome by emotion. .

My clients "have no hatred, no resentment against Nadine Oliveira, they even had a certain empathy imagining that she could feel terrible guilt. Except that this feeling gradually turned into anger", had declared earlier at the bar Me Philippe Ayral.

For Me Raymond Escalé, it is not possible to "say that it can happen to everyone": Nadine Oliveira "must be more vigilant than you and me", noted Enzo's lawyer, major for a few days, castigating the "unworthy defense" of the driver.

For the young amputated girl, soon to be of age, the verdict does not matter: "the driver is already dead, imprisoned in herself", reported her lawyer.
