Policy. Received at the Elysée, police unions demand an “anti-thug law”

Several police unions were received Friday at the Elysée where they pleaded for an “anti-breakers law” after the violence during the recent May Day demonstrations or against the pension reform.

The unions, grouped in a bloc led by Alliance, met with Emmanuel Macron’s chief of staff, Patrick Strzoda, the president’s security adviser, Frédéric Rose, and the justice adviser, Xavier Ronsin.

“We asked that the president beef up his security game and that he express unconditional support for the police, as the Minister of the Interior does, through the bill that we have been demanding for ages” , said Fabien Vanhemelryck, the boss of Alliance, citing in particular the “anti-breakers law”. They were told that there would be “concrete proposals within a month”, assured Fabien Vanhemelryck.

“The unions were reminded of the work carried out by the Minister of the Interior and the Minister of Justice to better protect citizens and better prevent and punish violence committed during demonstrations”, for its part indicated the Elysée.

Darmanin also calls for an anti-breakers law

The union bloc had sent a letter to the head of state last week, denouncing the “incredible violence” with which the police have been confronted during recent protests.

On Friday, they reiterated their demands: “A criminal response with a minimum sentence for law enforcement aggressors”, the “legal sanctuarization of the use of drones for preventive and judicial purposes” and an “anti-thug law “.

An idea also supported by the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin who called for a new anti-thug law after the violence of May 1. The Elysée said it had offered to other unions who so wish to be received in the coming days.
