Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
New complaints about violence by Macron’s bodyguard Benalla
French President Macron´s Deputy Chief of Staff, not just any bodyguard
A video showing how Benalla was beating a demonstrator lying on the ground to a pulp on May Day led to a public scandal. Now it turns out that about three hours before this happened, there was already a different confrontation with demonstrators, writes the newspaper.
Two protesters, a young man and woman, say they were stopped earlier in the Paris Jardin des Plantes by Benalla and Crase, who wore police bracelets.
While not being policemen.
This is said to have happened after Benalla and Crase found out that the woman was filming.
The protesters have filed complaints for, inter alia, violation of freedom, “intentional violence by persons with public authority” and unlawful use of “signs reserved for the public authority”. The complaints also concern Philippe Mizerski, who was responsible for the two.
