Raelian Movement spokesperson says Philippe Remond ‘was probably killed by order of the French army for saying publicly that the French military has no business remaining in Ivory Coast.’
LAS VEGAS, May 15 – According to a statement released this morning by the International Raelian Movement, Philippe Remond, a professor at the Institut National Polytechnique Felix Houphouet Boigny in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast, and a member of the Raelian Movement, was found murdered in his hotel room in Yamoussoukro the day after Alassane Ouattara’s forces took control of the country.
“Philippe Remond was one of those French nationals who regularly denounced French interference in Ivory Coast issues,” said Brigitte Boisselier, spokesperson for the IRM, adding that an example of Remond’s eloquent protests may be viewed below.
“When he became a Raelian, he also actively conveyed Rael’s ideas concerning the African continent,” Boisselier added. “On an Ivory Coast TV channel as well as in his preceding press releases, he openly condemned the French intervention of siding with Ouatarra [now the country’s new president].”
She said members of the Raelian Movement in Ivory Coast have no doubt that Remond was assassinated on orders from Paris.
