“To question my legitimacy is to question my presumption of innocence. »
The municipal council of Saint-Étienne started more than an hour ago and the voice of Gaël Perdriau is always calm and composed. His line of defense will not vary one iota throughout this Monday city council. A council that ended shortly before 8 p.m.
It was 2:30 p.m. when the mayor of Saint-Étienne entered the Albert-Lebrun room.

Around him, all the elected officials, with the exception of his former first deputy, Gilles Artigues, and his resigning school assistant, Samy Kéfi-Jérôme.
