Twenty years later, Outreau’s resounding issue should be the subject of a Netflix documentary. The platform had already produced a mini-series about the murder of young Grégory Villemin.
Netflix teams are already searching Outreau and Pas-de-Calais according to the daily La Voix du Nord. The mayor of the city has been contacted. The deputy commissioner of Boulogne-sur-Mer was also contacted, but he refused to contact the case.
Four sinners and thirteen were acquitted
In the early 2000s, the Outreau case erupted, in which about fifteen townspeople were implicated, accused of rape and sexual assault of the palace. Twelve children were recognized as victims of rape, sexual assault, minor corruption and pimping. If four people are ultimately found guilty, 13 others were acquitted in 2005 after the main defendant, Miriam Badawi, confessed to lying.
The alleged facts, the size of the case, and the legal failure stirred strong sentiments across the country for several years. In 2011, the cinema took over the case with a movie that was supposedly guilty.
Even if Netflix hasn’t confirmed its project yet, the production has been entrusted to Lagardère Studios with Imagissime, which is producing documentaries like the mini-series Grégory, which aired on the platform at the end of 2019.
