  • Description

    Hysterical scenes were reported from Paris Nov 16, after the military tribunal trying fifteen people for complicity in the January Algiers insurrection, announced that 29-year-old Pierre Lagaillarde, a leader of the revolt, would be provisionally released.

    Crowds gathered outside the Sante Prison to greet him, but were held back by a strong cordon of police. His wife and mother wept as they embraced him at the gates of the prison where he has been detained for the past ten months.

    From the prison Lagaillarde went to the offices of his advocate, Maitre Gallot, and then on to the offices of the newspaper "l'Echo d'Alger" for talks with M. De Serrigny, a director of the newspaper also on trial with Lagaillarde.

    Provisional release does not affect the charges against Lagaillarde. He will still have to attend court sessions, but will be able to return to his home afterwards instead of to a prison cell.
