2 French cops accused of raping Canadian tourist
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.
