All the light must be done following the revelations of Yves Bonnet, former Director of the DST, on the circumstances at the time of the antisemitic attack on the Jo Goldenberg restaurant.

According to Francis Kalifat, President of Crif, "if these facts are proven accurate, they would be extremely serious and constitute an unprecedented state scandal". He demands "the establishment of an parliamentary inquiry and the lifting of defense secrecy".

Crif asks French President Emmanuel Macron to make every effort needed, at the diplomatic and judicial level, so that the terrorists responsible for this massacre, now refugees in Jordan, Ramallah and Norway, can be heard by the French judges.

*The former Director of anti-terrorism, Yves Bonnet, admitted to the judge having made a secret agreement with the Palestinian group of Abu Nidal to avoid further attacks on French soil in the 1980s.
