Emmanuel Macron will lead a tribute to Francoise Rubetzki, tireless advocate for victims of the attacks, which will be held Wednesday at the Invalides. The Elysee announced Monday that the Macron would preside. The presidency announced that the tribute will be held at 4 p.m. in front of representatives from victim support groups and members of government.
Francoise Rudetzki's family, as well as the two victims of RER B attacks on Port-Royal (four killed, 91 injured) on December 3, 1996 and Bataclan (130 deaths, 350 injured) will speak during this military ceremony called "funeral honors".
Francoise Rudetzki, a lawyer, had founded SOS Attentats in December 1985. This date marked the start of the deadly attacks on Parisian Middle East conflicts.
It was established the Guarantee Fund for terrorist victims in 1986. This fund is funded by a small levy per property insurance contract. In 1990, the guarantee was extended to all criminal victims ( rape and assault, robbery ).
Francoise Rudetzki was the victim of a bomb blast at her Paris restaurant Grand Vefour, located under the arcades of Palais-Royal. She was there to celebrate her tenth wedding anniversary with her husband. The blast had thrown a door made of metal, which had broken the legs and arms of the young businesswoman.
She was operated on numerous times to treat her injuries. However, she contracted HIV and the Hepatitis C virus from a blood transfusion.
She "transformed" her personal struggle into a great collective battle, which will lead to numerous advances for victims of attacks.
They were also granted the right to participate in terrorist trials as civil parties.
Francoise Rudetzki was also involved in the establishment of a European Day of Remembrance for the victims of the attack (March 11, 2011) and the creation of a Memorial Museum of Terrorism, which will open its doors to the public in 2027.
