A complaint filed at the end of December, maître Jean Paillot has announced this Wednesday.

Also, parents will be received by an investigating judge on 8 February.

For several years, the case of Vincent Lambert divides a family. On the one hand, parents seek to transfer their son to a special school to sustain life.
