French ambassador: Justice will be served in Zeitouni case

January 3, 2012 15:32

France’s ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot assured a Knesset panel on Tuesday that justice would be served in the case of Tel Aviv woman Lee Zeitouni, who was killed last September in a hit-and-run accident committed by two French nationals.

However, he warned that there was little chance that the two suspects – Claude Isaac Hayat and Eric Rubic – would be extradited to Israel from France, where they fled after hitting Zeitouni, 25, on a Tel Aviv street and leaving her to die.

“There is no indifference in France, we are ready to judge them and we want to judge them, we don’t see it any other way,” stated the French Ambassador, who was speaking at a special hearing of the Knesset Committee for Aliya, Immigration and Diaspora.
