Proof in Trial : Public Prosecutor v. Bernard Petit et. al

A podcast series by Hogan Lovells

Bernard Petit spent his career working his way up through the ranks and was the head of the Judicial police in Paris when crises struck that shocked the country while the whole world watched. Rocked by two terrorist attacks in 2015, he led the investigations which resulted in successfully apprehending the terrorists in just three days. He was at the pinnacle of his career when it all suddenly crumbled beneath him. Bernard was stripped of his badge and forced to resign over allegations he leaked secrets about another investigation. Seven years later, he finally got his chance to walk into court, face his accuser and try to clear his name. This is the story of the Public Prosecutor v. Bernard Petit et. al.
