Attal promises extremely strong measures against the upsurge in violence

After the death of a teenager in Viry-Châtillon, the death of a 13-year-old girl in Oise, and the attack on Samara in Montpellier, Prime Minister Gabriel Attal announced that the government would take measures ” extremely strong” in the coming weeks.

“We have greatly strengthened the resources and we will continue to do so. We will present extremely clear, extremely strong measures in the coming weeks,” announced Prime Minister Gabriel Attal this Tuesday, April 9 before the National Assembly, during the question session to the government.

No details on the nature of these measures

“For this start, we will continue to act, act everywhere, act in the streets, act in the classrooms, act in families for security, order and respect for authority in our country,” he said. he added, without giving further details on the details of the promised measures. This announcement follows a question asked by Marine Le Pen, president of the deputies of the National Rally. She asked him what he planned to do to “get out of commentary and get into action”.

That same day there were two funerals. That of Shemseddine, a 15-year-old boy beaten to death in Viry-Châtillon. Four people were indicted for murder. The story apparently began after an altercation involving the sister of one of the suspects. The funeral of Shanon, a 13-year-old girl who died three weeks after being raped in Oise, also took place today. A 19-year-old man has been indicted for rape. A young man and a schoolgirl were indicted for failing to prevent the crime.

At the beginning of April, Samara, a 13-year-old girl, was assaulted in Montpellier as she was leaving school. Three minors aged 14 to 15 were indicted for “attempted intentional homicide” and admitted the facts. They were placed under judicial supervision.

Gabriel Attal says he wants to “go further in the scale of sanctions at school, in the face of violence which begins much younger”. According to him: “you break you repair, you dirty you clean, you challenge authority we teach you to respect it”.
