Against students whom she describes as “harceleurs“, The family files a complaint for”bullying” and “provocation to suicide», For facts that took place between 2019 and 2021, in 4th and 3rd year classes. The family produces high school conversations from social media and online messaging apps, as well as two sound recordings of Dinah.
These parts “show the disarray in which she was“, Said Me Laure Boutron-Marmion, considering that”they allow us to better understand the puzzle of hatred that had taken place around her“. The complaint also denounces “the passive attitude of the college management“, Under three other heads,”complicity in harassment», «failure to rescue” and “manslaughter», Detailed the lawyer. “The attitude of the college management was so passive that in two years, there was no contact between the college administration and the family, even after Dinah’s suicide attempt, in March 2021», Lamented Me Boutron-Marmion. “During this entire period, there was only one appointment, with the principal education advisor, and the nurse.“, According to the lawyer.
