One good French Lawyer...

French Avocat, Laurent Gaudon is, one of 180 Lawyers, making a case in France against Jean Claude Mas and the PIP company.

In March 2010, after twenty years of amassing a fortune by producing adulterated breast implants, Jean-Claude Mas was forced to close his company Poly Implant Prosthesis (PIP). 

Released from Bail on Monday 29th Ocober 2012 pending trial in 2013, Mas made fraudulent claims about the qualities of the product, produced false advertising and endangered the lives of others.  Indicted on dozens of charges, ranging from poisoning, aggravated deception through tax evasion and abuse of social goods, Mas has managed to be declared insolvent, to hide and protect his fortune. He believes he can hide behind this supposed insolvency to avoid compensating his victims.

Some 4,600 victims are already involved in the class action, including British women.

For many women no legal help is available, in Britain the Government has deemed this a civil rather than criminal issue.  Mas was arrested by Interpol, there has been a police investigation in France where the legal process is already set in motion.  

We want JUSTICE...
