After the hearing of the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, on “the question of maintaining order” three weeks ago in the National embly, soon that of the police force. According to our information, the Law Commission will audition, in July, the boss of theIGPN (General Inspectorate of the National Police), Agnès Thibault-Lecuivre, as well as her counterpart from the IGGN (General Inspectorate of the National Gendarmerie), Alain Pidoux.
“There are many parliamentarians who talk about the police and the work of inspections without knowing anything about it, either to excuse everything, or to condemn automatically”, estimates its president, the deputy Renaissance, Sacha Houliefor whom “these hearings will allow everyone to get to the bottom of things, to see how the investigations are conducted, how the inspections work, how effective the sanctions imposed are”.
A subject of political confrontation
Behind its technical aspect, a subject of political confrontation between the majority and its opposition – especially on the left. Explosive, even, after the strong criticism of the management of the demonstrations against the pension reform and the “mega-basins” in Sainte-Soline (Deux-Sèvres), demonstrators, lawyers’ unions, magistrates or political leaders on the left protesting against police brutality.
“Everyone cares when there’s a case. After that, nobody cares anymore. The goal is not to lose the thread”, continues Houlié, recalling that following the Michel Zecler affair, the Beauvau of security “had established parliamentary control over the inspections”.
