Christian Noyer, Governor of the Banque de France, received confirmation of the death of Bernard Maris, a Member of the General Council of the Banque de France, during the terrible attack on the newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
“It is a cowardly and barbaric attack against the freedom of the press and those who stand for it. People with convictions including our friend and colleague Bernard Maris were killed in it. Bernard Maris was a man of heart, culture and great tolerance. He will be sorely missed” said Mr. Noyer.
Christian Noyer and all the General Council of the Banque de France wish to express their deepest sympathy and extend their most sincere condolences to his family and the family of the other victims.
