It is an announcement that comes two days before the commemoration of the tragedy. An agreement to compensate the victims of the explosion in the rue de Trévise has been found, announced Tuesday, January 11 the city of Paris, which will provide it to the tune of 20 million euros, and victims associations. An extraordinary Paris Council will be convened to validate this agreement, “probably” Monday January 17, according to Emmanuel Grégoire, first deputy to the socialist mayor Anne Hidalgo.

Emmanuel Grégoire announced at the beginning of October that the city, put in review in this case, would add 20 million euros to the compensation fund “without this presuming his guilt”. While the estimate of the total property and personal injury amounts to 200 million euros, the town hall “will have to complete at some point”, believes Linda Zaourar, president of the association Victims and survivors of the explosion in the rue de Trévise.

On January 12, 2019, a very loud detonation caused by a gas leak had blown this street in the 9th arrondissement of the capital, killing 4 and injuring 66. About 400 residents had been affected. The town hall of Paris, which the victims have so far criticized for “play for time”, had said it was ready to sign the framework compensation agreement, while the contribution of the other parties involved, in particular the co-ownership manager, also under investigation and the GRDF gas distributor, remains confidential.
