Nathalie Piché, victim
Her mother, Nathalie Piché, was killed on June 14 in the Limoilou neighborhood in Quebec. & Nbsp;
Her partner, Noureddine Mimouni, is accused of premeditated murder. The 34-year-old had been in trouble with the law and the police before the tragedy. & Nbsp; & nbsp;
Despite a difficult mourning, his three daughters agreed to testify together for the first time as part of a show on violent men presented tonight at JE . & nbsp;
Nathalie Piché's daughters, Annabelle, Catherine and Stéphanie, testified on J.E's camera after the murder of their mother.
They want domestic violence to be tackled from high school, like other social issues such as drunk driving. & nbsp;
“At school, we learn mathematics, we learn French, but the real things in life, you have to talk about them. It can help young women and men spot signs of violence and control, ”says Annabelle.

The three young women also believe that it is necessary to better supervise the spouses who face justice. & Nbsp;
In the case of Noureddine Mimouni, accusations of assault, forcible confinement and threats had been brought. against him in December 2020. He was released the same day, under certain conditions. & nbsp; & nbsp;
“At the first complaint, there should be a red flag, already when leaving”, thinks Annabelle . & nbsp;
The eldest of the family, Stéphanie, wonders if a suspect could not be kept under observation while assessing whether he poses any risk. & Nbsp;
“It should be taken seriously and that there be measures, ”she said.
The sisters also hope that violent men will be better taken care of, even going so far as to impose therapy more often ( see below ). & nbsp;
The president of the Regroupement des maisons pour femmes victims of conjugal violence, Chantal Arseneault, for her part, hopes that the assessment of the dangerousness of a violent spouse or ex-spouse can be imposed by a judge.

“As soon as a woman files a complaint, it would be nice if the judges had the power to order an assessment of violent spouses. It is not true that all situations of domestic violence are at the same level of danger to the lives of victims and their children. “& Nbsp;
Help for violent men & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp;
Excess anger, violent thoughts, aggressive words; some men have confided in our Bureau of Investigation into their violent past and hope to convince others to seek help. & nbsp; & nbsp;
Jacques (fictitious name) did not realize that her rages of anger were problematic and dangerous. & nbsp;
“I was fantasizing about the female person I had a problem with, I wanted to slit her throat, really take a knife and slice her throat, to tell you how emotionally charged I was. And joining Entraide pour hommes really did me good. “& Nbsp;
Entraide pour hommes is an organization that works with men exhibiting violent behavior.
Another beneficiary, Patrick (fictitious name) , explains that he tended to blame his past to justify his violence. & nbsp;
“I had a great tendency to use my past to justify violent behavior that I have seen. that I had to endure. Although I was aware of it, I still reproduced these behaviors. “& Nbsp;
Geneviève Landry, Executive Director of Entraide pour hommes, explains the importance of de-dramatizing the request for help.
Asked about the wave of feminicides, she recalls the need to assess the dangerousness of a man who behaves violently. & nbsp; & nbsp;
“This man must be seated in a male resource for him to be assessed for the severity of the violence and the danger of 'homicide. I think the key is there. If everyone feels responsible, domestic violence is my concern, I think we will be able to reduce the number of homicides. »& Nbsp;
