We found Boris Le Lay, the Breton neo-Nazi who took refuge in Japan [Exclusif] -Quimper
“Yes, he lives here. But he can’t meet you now or today, he’s very busy. I’ll tell him you tried to reach him. If no name appears on the door or on the mailbox, at the other end of the intercom, a woman confirms to us in Japanese what has leaked on the internet. Breton neo-Nazi Boris Le Lay, a refugee in Japan for several years, lives on the second floor of this building in Kashiwa, a city in the greater suburbs of Tokyo.
It takes more than 1 hour 15 minutes, by taking a train from the famous JR railway company, to reach this city in the northeast of the Japanese capital, in Shiba prefecture. From the top of its five levels, the building faces a very busy and noisy boulevard. Around, houses occupied by suburbanites who came to seek more accessible prices in the dormitory town than in the heart of the megalopolis.
What does the professional Breton cook live off? Does he intend to return to France one day to serve several years in prison after having been convicted of multiple convictions for incitement to discrimination, racial hatred and violence, contestation and glorification of crimes against humanity, death threat or defamation again? How does he see the future when his passport has expired and his residence permit will follow the same trajectory in 2026? Does he live well with a Japanese woman, what the voice heard in the intercom lets show through without being able to have it confirmed? We would have liked to ask all these questions to the 41-year-old Quimpérois, involved in other cases and subject to French and international search warrants (interpol red notice). But the apartment door won’t open. And our requests by email, the very day of this trip to Kashiwa, will remain a dead letter.
Always active on the Web
In the meantime, Boris Le Lay, protected by the absence of an extradition agreement between France and Japan, remains as active as ever on the web. He is even one of the pillars of the “fachosphere”. A few minutes on the Web are enough to find the site he is suspected of administering: Participatory Democracy.
Despite the blockages decided by the courts, and the piracy of its data by a hacker, last February, the nationalist blog hosted in the United States is regularly updated. He alternates notes and speeches, in particular through a “talk show” hosted by a certain “Gandalf le blanc”, the pseudonym chosen by Le Lay – whose voice is easily recognizable – where he pours, for 1 hour 30 minutes, his hatred of Jews and foreigners. An activity that has earned him today an S file, the list of people likely to undermine state security and public security.
Funded by donations from listeners in Monero cryptocurrency, Participatory Democracy is concerned, for example, these days, more particularly, with the situation of French Holocaust denier Vincent Reynouard, arrested in early November in Scotland. An activism that pushes anti-racist associations to maintain pressure on Le Lay and the authorities. In France as in Japan.
