The ceremony, the flowers, the petits fours … Everything was ready for the next day. But Friday, July 20, Alexandre Benalla understands that he will postpone his marriage with his concubine Myriam: the young deputy director of the Emmanuel Macron cabinet, accused of 26 years of security issues, is in custody in the premises of the judicial police.

The only person who has the keys to my house is my wife who has now definitely gone abroad. to rest and to flee the reporters with our baby. "
Abroad? Magistrates and police snort an indirect excuse. The researchers go home with the intention to force the lock.
