Gérard Fauré was a drugs kingpin in France who currently, in 'retirement', is causing quite a stir in the francosphere. Fauré has provided dozens of names of celebrities, state officials including police officers and politicians (some of whom are still alive), along with serious accusations. The whole French media sphere is talking about it, but to date Fauré has net been sued once. Which suggests that his claims have credence.

Fauré used his prison time to write 10 books. Only 3 of them have been published so far.


The prince of cocaine is back. Despite his retirement, Gérard Fauré, seventy years old, does not remain unemployed. After a first opus in 2018, he publishes a second volume of his memories, darker, with always more revelations on the drug and gangster scene.

Sputnik interviewed him again - an interview that will take your breath away.

Here he arrives in a brand new German sedan in a town in the Yvelines. "Copyright," jokes Gérard Fauré when he welcomes us to his home. Other than that, nothing has changed in his apartment since 2018, where we had first come to The Dealer in Tout-Paris: The Supplier of The Stars Speaks. After 30,000 copies sold (some claim twice as much) and millions of views on YouTube, the former gangster has re-offended.

He published the rest of his memoirs in January, The Prince of Coke. Two more opuses are said to be in progress. A movie adaptation is even mooted. And, for the moment, no defamation complaint, nor reprisals.

His first book was more autobiographical, where we learned about his childhood in Morocco, then his education in delinquency in Spain, his bank robberies on behalf of the SAC (Service of Civic Action) under the orders of Charles Pasqua, and his cocaine escapades, involving such VIPs as former president of France Jacques Chirac and pop star Johnny Hallyday.


Comment: Charles Pasqua was French Minster of Home Affairs, twice. According to Fauré, Pasqua controlled most of the cannabis trafficking from North Africa to France. In this manner, Pasqua pacified the French suburbs and funded his paramilitary organization (SAC), which specialized in targeted assassinations.


In this darker suite, he returns in great detail to pedophile networks within the Parisian elite, overseen by Bernard L., "the French Jeffrey Epstein", the corruption of certain police and customs officials and other anecdotes on showbiz personalities. Many protagonists, named or not, are already dead. As such, they cannot defend themselves. He categorically refutes being qualified as a provocateur, preferring to describe his motivation - a tad conspiratorially - as:
"I'm not politiking. I inform the French population so that they know who is above us. But they already know in part that all of our leaders are corrupt."
Much too explosive, his first work Fatal Confidence has not been published in bookstores, it is only available on Amazon. Fearing legal proceedings for the two volumes of Dealer du Tout-Paris, its editor redacted numerous passages and names. Boastful, Gérard Fauré is not afraid of anything. The judges know him. Prisons, too. He spent eighteen years behind bars. And he escaped three times.
"There are lawsuits that I would love to have with some of the characters in my book. It would be my pleasure to have a complaint from a great character and to have a fight with him. Especially since I'm armed - which is to say, that I have evidence."
The proximity between political, literary and media circles has often been the subject of rumors. Reality or fantasy?

Revelations bumper

Certain facts are known, such as the controversy about Frédéric Mitterrand and his sex tourism, described in his autobiography. Much more recently, the Matzneff affair is the symbol of this, where this subsidized writer published by Gallimard, regularly claimed to be a pedophile.


Comment: Frédéric Mitterrand is the nephew of former French president François Mitterrand.


Gérard Fauré takes up the very enigmatic sentence of Luc Ferry, former Minister of National Education, when the latter, on the set of Canal + in 2011, affirms that a "former minister" of his country has "been caught in Marrakech in a orgy with little boys." An extremely shocking sentence, which gave rise to judicial inquiries, without result.

The former drug trafficker thus details a pedophile network organized by the "French Jeffrey Epstein", named after the American businessman involved in pimping and sexual assault cases, a scandal splashing out to the British royal family:
"He went to look for children in Brazil, with the mother, sometimes the father. He installed them in maids' rooms, above his hotel. And the child, for a year and a half, served as an inflatable doll. I worked with him. It was for cocaine, I supplied cocaine in his hotel, the Beverly Hills. I was stuck there every night because he was one of my best customers. He bought from me 500g almost every week and he sold by 100g to the Saudis and Qataris who came to have small children. And that man was protected by a very great policeman."
Have you seen the movie Taken, by Pierre Morel? Well, it looks like this. To prove the facts, however, is another story.

A busy life

The former bank robber, today retired, evokes jumbled suspicious deaths including those of Jean-Edern Hallier and Mike Brant, the corruption of customs officials in France and Belgium and other anecdotes on models, journalists and singers.

How he could have taken the place of John Travolta, following a London soirée at the home of Robert Stigwood, producer of Grease and Saturday Night Fever. How he sold cocaine the day before a Paris-Bogota flight to two airline pilots, who ultimately brought him to safety. His nickname 'The Prince of Coke' does not seem to be usurped.

Even if he is done with trafficking, this supporter of the legalization of many drugs has an ambiguous take on cocaine and its effects.
"You have to look at the consequences... there are many people who died from it."
He doesn't regret anything from his past, but he is very careful not to praise drugs. It should be remembered that, in France, 'advertising' done on drugs is punishable by five years in prison and a €75,000 fine.

In his book he also describes his hunger-strike in prison because the state was after all his money. Holding 500 million old francs in a non-resident account in France, a tax audit would have initially deprived him of 120 million, the same amount would have been levied by customs, and the rest confiscated by the ministry of justice.
"It was money I brought from Holland. It was clean money in France, not entirely in Holland. So I wrote to Bérégovoy, who was a minister at the time, and got no response. I went on a hunger-strike."
After a suicide attempt, Gérard Fauré ended his strike after 41 days without eating. And he was finally able to recover some of his money. Claiming that he is no longer in touch with that rarified milieu, he is not bored, spending most of his time reading and writing. Writing that he conceives of as "vomit". Effective therapy?
"I like to make people tremble. There is a clique that trembles in France. I have a lot to throw up. Until I empty myself completely, I won't stop writing."
