The final change of textual content messages was on the finish of January 2021. It was a few TV documentary, L’Affaire qui a fait exploser la droite (“The affair that blew up the proper wing”), by which he had agreed to participate – specifically, to debate the Bygmalion case (involving former president Nicolas Sarkozy hiding the true price of his failed 2012 re-election bid), which he had investigated.

Then, just a few days later, he added: “After additional consideration, given the context of the documentary and the present proceedings, I can not and do not need to seem within the documentary in any respect.”

Proper as much as the top, Renaud Van Ruymbeke, who died on the age of 71, remained an affable, considerate man, typically torn between the neutrality required of judges and his need to share the main reason for his life: justice.
