In his order Me Voltaire writes "[...] For these reasons, the Government Commissioner requests that it pleases the honorable investigating magistrate to say and declare that there is no reason to prosecute the named Fritz Aubourg, Michelet Virgile and Robinson Pierre Louis for the acts of illicit trafficking in firearms and ammunition and criminal associations that the evidence is not sufficient to remove them from the bonds of indictment, we can read in the prescription."
