Cit had been rumored for a few days: residents of Pepinster declaring to journalists’ recorders that they had been unable to detect any trace of the Belgian Red Cross in their town, while at the same time they assured, not without irony, that they had been able to observe the presence of volunteers from the Israeli Red Cross (see a report published in The morning). This Thursday, however, the controversy took on another dimension. Because it is Philippe Godin, mayor of Pepinster, who now publicly street in the stretchers of the Red Cross. On the sidelines of the presentation of a “flood plan”, it went so far as to declare that the association had responded to “absent subscribers” since the start of the disaster. And this, while the mayor of one of the most affected towns in Wallonia claims to have explicitly requested support.
