Philippine Daily Inquirer - - WORLD -

PARIS— Two anti­gang French po­lice­men are go­ing on trial on charges of gang-rap­ing a Cana­dian tourist at Paris po­lice head­quar­ters. The of­fi­cers, both mem­bers of the BRI (Re­search and In­ter­ven­tion Bri­gade) force, are ac­cused of rap­ing the woman at 36 Quai des Or­fevres, a fa­mous ad­dress de­picted in many crime movies and nov­els. The woman said she met a group of of­fi­cers across the street near the Seine River at an Ir­ish pub in April 2014. After sev­eral drinks, they in­vited her for a night tour of the head­quar­ters where she claimed she was raped sev­eral times. The of­fi­cers face up to 20 years in prison.
