Eric Dupond-Moretti, Minister of Justice, was confronted by a far-right S File at the end Monday's afternoon during an electoral visit to Ermont (Val-d'Oise). He was then arrested. At 6:30 p.m., a person insulted him while he was out for a walk. The security service dismissed him and he was taken into custody by Val-d'Oise officers who were nearby, according to a police source.
The man, who has not been identified, made insults to the Keeper of Seals, calling him a "crook" of justice, but he did not make any threats. The man was arrested and found to be carrying a small Swiss army knife, which he didn't display or use. He was taken into custody
"He made some very strong comments quoting Damien Rieu's name and other members of the identity movement. He was clearly not interested in dialogue or the confrontation of ideas," "described Chancellery. According to Naima Moutchou, deputy (Horizons), the suspect "appearly wanted to fight with us while we were speaking peacefully with residents of Ermont," she testified. She added, "We won't give in to intimidation."
I would like to thank the police for capturing this extremist right-wing activist and S file. He wanted to fight with us, while we were just talking with peaceful residents in.
