A person who was the driver of Isabelle Adjani, designated as one of the attackers of Dr. Delajoux in an anonymous letter was heard in early June by the police.
In this letter anonymously, described as "filthy" by Me Assous, received in late March by a lawyer of Dr. Delajoux and L'Express revealed this week, Isabelle Adjani is designated as the sponsor of the assault.
At his hearing, the driver had denied his involvement in the case and "accepted a DNA sample," said a source close to the investigation.
Investigators wanted to compare the DNA with that from a hair found in a hood that Dr. Delajoux had torn from one of his attackers and had then handed over to the police, according to the Express.
Dr. Delajoux was assaulted by two men while on his way home in the seventeenth district in December 2009.
The assault had occurred in the middle of controversy over its responsibility for the health of Johnny Hallyday. The singer had suffered an infection after surgery which required placement in drug-induced coma a few days after surgery for a herniated disc by Dr. Delajoux.
In dispute with his former companion, the actress received in 2010 the court of Nanterre entering a company's accounts of Dr. Delajoux, "Doctor more" to get the repayment of a loan of 150,000 euros. According to his lawyer, only 63,000 euros were paid to the actress, who has donated to Sidaction.
