series In Dérapages , mini -series in 6 episodes broadcast on Arte, Alain Delambre ( Eric Cantona ) is a man who unemployment has destroyed. Against all expectations, his candidacy was retained for a position of HRD. Alain wants to believe in it at all costs, even if it means putting his family in danger. When he understands that he is only a stooge to reinforce an already selected candidacy, he takes advantage of the final test to dynamite the system. Alain then has nothing to lose ... Originally adapted from the novel by Pierre Lemaître Black frames , it is inspired, as surprising as it may seem, by a case of false hostage taking which really took place in 2005 and which therefore serves here as a "final test" to test the employees' resistance to stress.

Nick Cordero's wife says he is 'recovering well' after doctors inserted temporary pacemaker

  Nick Cordero's wife says he is 'recovering well' after doctors inserted temporary pacemaker Nick Cordero, who remains in a medically-induced coma after coronavirus complications, "should have woken up by now," his wife says.Amanda Kloots told her followers Saturday that her husband is doing well after having a procedure Friday to insert a temporary pacemaker.

The facts took place on October 25, 2005 at the Château de Romainville in Ecquevilly in the Yvelines and are told in a detailed investigation by Médiapart . At the initiative of the director general of France Télévisions advertising management at the time, a dozen people who made up the management committee met for a seminar. It was then that a commando of 9 hooded people, heavily armed, burst into the meeting room and took the frightened executives hostage. They are actually GIGN agents who have come to make ends meet.

For more than an hour, the employees are thus kidnapped, handcuffed, hooded, manhandled, while one of the hostage takers announces that they demand that they be given the sum of one million euros as well as the broadcasting of a video during the 8 pm newspaper of France 2 that evening. The pressure rises and the sales manager present, in shock, must be evacuated. We end up revealing to them that what they have just experienced was in reality only a staging to test their resistance, which was imagined by their general manager, Philippe Santini.

What has been experienced as an " true terrorist act " by the victims obviously leaves traces within the company, leading to departures, whether voluntary or not, of several employees and to significant psychological damage . We have to wait a month before Le Canard Enchaîné reveals the affair to the general public, a case that will ultimately make little noise since it has been overlooked by the mainstream media.

In 2009, the criminal complaint of a dismissed collaborator resulted in the conviction of Philippe Santini, as well as that of the leader of the false commando, for “complicity in aggravated willful violence, with premeditation and use or threat of a weapon and sequestration". However, he will not leave his post at France Télévisions until three years later ...

This type of recruitment and management methods fortunately seems to be extremely rare and there are no other similar cases in France, neither before nor after this affair .
