Rémy Daillet, a figure in conspiratorial circles and suspected of being involved in the kidnapping of little Mia, in April, in the Vosges, was indicted in mid-June, in particular for complicity in the kidnapping of a minor from 15 years in an organized gang. He was remanded in custody. The girl was staying with her grandmother when she was kidnapped by several men, at the request of the mother of the child who no longer had custody and was no longer allowed to see her alone. The child and his mother were found five days later in Switzerland.

In a video posted online after the kidnapping, Rémy Daillet had tried to justify himself and, without mentioning Mia by name, he had refuted the term kidnapping. In other older videos, this former MoDem executive – from which he was expelled in 2010 – supported the idea of ​​a popular coup and said he was opposed to taxes, vaccines, wearing a mask or 5G.
