The same construciton appears again later in the paragraph, btw: Certains d'entre eux disent même l'avoir vu partir de Marseille vers Aix-en-Provence sur un cheval noir.

comment Differentiating “I must not” and “I don't have to” ?
Welcome to Stack Exchange, lili! Your answer here was a little unclear, so I think that's why someone downvoted you. Sometimes people don't explain their downvotes :( At any rate, it would be helpful if you would elaborate on what you mean here. And yes, I know the word nécessaire is not literally present in the sentence....it was just one way of translating it, which I used because it made very clear the distinction I was trying to make between meanings. With necessary, the meaning is approximately the same in English, though indeed the English phrasing is less than perfectly natural.

That is so stupid! Il ne faut pas partir having the meaning of "you must not leave* just doesn't make sense, that's simply not what it says in a literal sense....it says "It's not necessary to leave.* I understand, I just resent the lack of logic in the meaning.

Wait....Do you mean il ne faut pas le faire or il faut ne pas le faire.....surely there's a way to differentiate this with where you place the stress when speaking aloud?
