On Tuesday, September 28, a 32-year-old Pole left the vineyard where he was harvesting, in Saint-Vérand, in Beaujolais. On foot, without paper and without telephone.
Since then, he had not given any news to his family, whether in France or Poland. A call for witnesses was then broadcast Thursday in Progress at the request of the Villefranche-sur-Saône public prosecutor’s office and the gendarmes.
It has paid off. Numerous calls made it possible to find the trace of this man. would have been arrested after leaving the village and first dropped off in Légny. The motorist who transported him would have understood that he wanted to go to Lyon. Then, the video surveillance of the municipality of Lozanne made it possible to see him getting into another vehicle. Then, he was seen on the Pierres Dorées area of the A89 motorway.
Eventually, the man was found at the Polish consulate in Lyon.
According to our information, if the first week of harvest had gone well, the work of the Pole would have deteriorated. The winegrower would therefore have terminated his contract. But he had left him the possibility of staying where he was, without working, because his mother was also doing the harvest.
