French PM toughens penalties for police and gendarmes’ aggressors

Paris, May 11 (Prensa Latina) French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Tuesday announced the toughening of sanctions for those guilty of attacks against police and gendarmes forces, in a context marked by the killing of an police officer in Avignon.

After meeting on Monday evening at his Matignon headquarters with representatives of police unions, the prime minister issued a communique in which he stated the increase to 30 years of the security sentence to those condemned to life imprisonment for a crime against police officers.

On May 5, police officer Eric Masson, 36, was killed, while investigating activity at a known drug-dealing site in Avignon, an attack that shocked society.

Castex insisted on the need to strengthen the punishment to the aggressors of police officers, while Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti, called for a ‘strict firmness’ by the attorneys in the prosecution of those cases.

The French Government also informed the establishment as of July 1 of a criminal response observatory, a mechanism destined to deal with crimes committed against the internal security forces.
