Béziers man in prison for spying on ex-wife

MidiLibre/Scoop, Mar 29

A man has been in court this week, has been given a sentence of three months in prison, and had his spying equipment confiscated.

According to the Midi Libre, always keen to present a flowery picture, the defendant’s 'gentle and restrained voice in court was a big contrast to his wrestler’s build', [and perhaps a big contrast to his behaviour too. Ed].

His ex-wife, and mother of his children, left him in August 2016. For three months the husband repeatedly called and messaged her. In total 1,214 telephone contact attempts were recorded by his ex-wife.

The Biterrois man did not stop there. He hid a recording system behind her television, so that he could spy on her from a distance.

He explained his surveillance by saying he feared that his ex-wife would leave the area with the children.

François Fournier, the deputy prosecutor, slapped a three month prison sentence on him, and the ex-wife has won a plea for her name not to be published.
