A show where he re-enacts five major pleadings
“It is as a woman and as a complainant that I find revolting and insulting that a person who has already admitted some of the facts of which he is accused against women can claim to be the spokesperson. of the latter and of children victims of criminal offenses “, she continues.
Richard Berry denied “with all (his) strength and without ambiguity these filthy accusations”. From the newspaper The world, he has however “recognized” from “blows” allegedly brought against Coline Berry-Rojtman’s mother, Catherine Hiegel, as well as against another ex-girlfriend, Jeane Manson.
On October 31, the actor is to resume at the Théâtre Libre in Paris the show “Plaidoiries”, in which he puts on the lawyer dress and reproduces five pleadings, among which one by the late lawyer Gisèle Halimi in defense of abortion, or another by Me Jean-Pierre Mignard in defense of the families of Zyed Benna and Bouna Traoré, who died in an electrical transformer in Clichy-sous-Bois in 2005 while fleeing the police.
Coline Berry-Rojtman asks the president “not to be so complicit in this imposture by remaining silent in the face of this devious use of the lawyer dress.” “If Richard Berry wants to continue performing roles, let him do it, but stop wearing the dress and the title that make your profession great”, she wrote again.
