Case Benalla : the acts of violence committed on 1 may “legitimate” if committed by police officers

Gestures “not very effective” but “a legitimate force if they are police officers”: the director of the general Inspectorate of the national police (IGPN), “police-police”, justified Tuesday the lack of follow-up to the video of the 1-May in which we see Alexander Benalla hit two protesters.

The officers of the IGPN, who have viewed the images on 3 may, had “no reason to think that the people trying to intervene are not the police”, explained Marie-France Mcwin-guyomarc’h, interviewed by the investigation Commission of the national Assembly on the matter Benalla. The video shows “technical actions that are poorly managed”, she acknowledged, but “no violence illegitimate” if “these are police officers who implement it”.
