France’s first lady Carla Bruni promised Monday that justice will be served in the case of an Israeli woman that was killed last September in a hit-and-run accident by two French nationals.

The two men, who have been identified as Claude Isaac Hayat and Eric Rubic, hit and instantly killed Pilates instructor Lee Zeitouni as she crossed a Tel Aviv street on Friday September 16th. The two men not only fled the scene of the accident, but a few hours later boarded a plane and flew to their native Paris. A few days later Hayat admitted to the accident in an emotional interview on Israel’s Channel 10 news.

“I would like to convey my condolences and share the sorrow of your family,” wrote Bruni, a former actress and model who is married to French President Nicholas Sarkozy, in a personal letter to Lee Zeitouni’s mother, Kate.
