The case of Robert Boulin's mysterious death; a so called suicide in 46 inch of water...A honest man who was set up by his fellow politician friends and who had nothing more to lose, to expose the whole truth about their never ending swindles, state scale frauds. The most important politicians of this era were involved, not officially of course, in this "suicide". Even the gendarmes, who discovered the corpse, were discharged of the case, and the police force took it and buried it.

He has the overall face and attitude for it.
The notorious public enemy number one, Jacques Mesrine, was executed a couple of days later as a diversion, to let the public "forget" the Robert Boulin's death.
