The Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin, constrained by the videos of police violence, seized the IGPN after the “unacceptable facts “occurred on the Place de la République on Monday.
Thanks to images of police violence by journalists and activists on Monday 23 November 2020 at Place de la République in Paris, the Minister of the Interior reacted. Gérald Darmanin announced to seize the IGPN about “several unacceptable facts”.
After asking for a report from the Prefect of Police Didier Lallement on Monday evening, the Minister of the Interior announced that he was seizing the General Inspectorate of the National Police. “Several unacceptable facts” will be subject to administrative investigation, but not criminal for the time being.
“I asked the IGPN to submit its findings within 48 hours and will make them public,” the minister said. Which is pressed by many elected Parisians, nationals and public figures, who have denounced “unworthy” and “inhuman” violence.
The report from the Prefect of Police on the evacuation of the illegal encampment on Place de la République was given to me this morning. He offered me a referral to the IGPN on several unacceptable facts. I asked the IGPN to submit its findings within 48 hours and will make them public.
