The young woman had previously requested help from her. retired mother, Fatima, at the Carsat (pension and occupational health fund) in Creuse, but his file was rejected by the advisor, as he informs at the beginning of his message, the result is much less procedural.
"We are called Daesh Cretan"
The counselor continues his accusation against the pensioner after he has pronounced his decision in a very dry tone by talking to his colleagues. He thinks he has hung up, but he is not.

The young woman decided to file a complaint against the counselor. "Are we called Daesh from Crete? I am Creusoise, married to a pure Creusois, my parents are Creusois, and free insults like that, it is inadmissible," Fatiha Martin responded to the France Bleu microphone. "I do not want this to happen again, for me, for my mother, for everyone," she added to justify her decision to file a complaint. His mother was also shocked that a "person working for the public service, for the state" can make such a statement.
