Attack in Nice - Message from Jean-Laurent Bonnafé

  • 18.07.2016


The atrocious attack perpetrated in the Promenade des Anglais in Nice during the evening of Thursday 14 July has left us all shocked and saddened.

Our thoughts go out to the many victims of this attack, cruelly struck down as they were celebrating France’s National Day, and we express our deepest sympathies to their families and loved ones. 

We further offer our sympathy and support to all our BNP Paribas colleagues in the Mediterranean Region, especially the French Retail Banking staff. 

As a mark of respect for the victims, the BNP Paribas Group will observe a minute’s silence on Monday 18 July at 12:00 (your local time). All staff are requested to join with us in this moment of mourning.


Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, Chief Executive Officer
