Eric Dupond-Moretti, minister
Dupond is the only son of Jean-Pierre Dupond, a metal worker from Avesnois, and Elena Moretti, a housewife from Italy. His paternal grandparents, Achille and Louise, were also workers. Fatherless at the age of four, his mother raised him alone. Like many famous fatherless criminal lawyers (Robert Badinter, Georges Kiejman, Hervé Temime), his childhood gave him a sense of injustice. He attended secondary school at the Catholic Lycée Notre-Dame, in Valenciennes, where he obtained his baccalauréat.
