Survivor of Charlie Hebdo attack sues French TV


Le Parisien reported on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 that a man who escaped death when Islamic terrorists broke into his workplace, is now suing French media stations.

When Muslim terrorists broke into a French magazine’s offices of Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015 to kill the employees, their carnage was broadcast around the world.

After the two gunmen escaped to a print works plant in Dammartin-en-Goële, France, employee, Lilian Lepère, 26, hid under a sink cabinet.  The Islamist attackers were unaware of his presence in the facility that they had decided to use as a headquarters.

After hours of keeping quiet as the gunmen stood right next to the sink he was hiding under, Lepère managed to call his brother on his cell phone.  This connected him to the police who soon surrounded them and killed the attackers.

After the whole ordeal was over, Lepère was angered to learn that France 2 and TF1 television stations, and RMC radio had put his life at risk “by saying live on air that there were possibly employees still on the site and that the terrorists weren’t aware of it.”
