    Moderator Note: several threads have been merged to create this one. See this other thread too: mettre en cause.

    Could someone please translate this phrase.

    It is in regards to legal papers that were filed.

    Is it something like:

    "Le docteur Petrovich a été mis en cause dans l'affaire du doping..."????

    I would suggest "indicted" in your context, if the legal proceedings are criminal in nature.

    If the context is civil, not criminal, it would be "joined as a party" to the lawsuit.

    Hello. I am currently reading a communications book and would like to know the context of this phrase. Thanks.

    "... conclut l'ombudsman du New York Times un an après que l'existance des armes de destruction massive ait été sérieusement mis en cause par la presse internationale."

    Thank you very much to anyone who can help.

    "Mis" is the past participle of "Mettre", but this is an expression. It should go something like this:
    Flashball fired in Montreuil: Police officers implicated by the "police's police".
