After the death of YouTuber Mava Chou, Wednesday, December 22, her lawyer announced this Sunday that the thirty-something had just lodged a complaint against her ex-husband and against X for moral harassment.
Her death had been announced in the middle of the week by her best friend. Youtuber Mava Chou, followed by 145,000 people, was in fact the target of fierce criticism on the Internet.
This Sunday, her lawyer announced that the YouTuber had filed a complaint just before her death against her ex-husband and against X for moral harassment.
« A complaint was lodged in the name of Maëva (Frossard, her real name, editor’s note) and her new spouse for moral harassment and provocation to suicide against her ex-husband and against X. Unfortunately the complaint left on the day of her death « , told AFP Me Stéphane Giuranna, lawyer in Epinal, confirming information from the daily Vosges Morning.
Five complaints already filed
The death Wednesday « at the end of the day » of the 32-year-old woman, mother of four children and known to relate for years her life on video, was announced Thursday on her Facebook account in a « post validated by her family » which did not specify the causes of his death and asked « not to seek to know more ».
According to her lawyer, « Mava Chou » had already, because of attacks targeting her on the internet, filed five complaints directly to the police station since May 2020, « but they had given nothing ».
“Today, to me, it is akin to modern day homicide. You can kill someone with a few words, false information and harassment,” the lawyer considered. The latter intends to maintain the complaint, this one having also been filed in the name of the new companion of the YouTuber.
« It is absolutely necessary that the public authorities react, toughen the laws, give the means to the investigative services to identify the stalkers who are cowards, write behind their screen and feel all powerful, it is necessary that the fear changes sides « , added Me Stéphane Giuranna.
Contacted by AFP on Sunday, the Epinal prosecutor’s office did not respond immediately.
