While the Marseille BAC policeman, suspected of violence against the young Hedi, was kept in pre-trial detention on Thursday, Olivier Véran, the government spokesman, contacted the young man to support him. An initiative denounced by MP RN Kévin Mauvieux at the microphone of Europe 1.
It is a phone call that does not pass through the ranks of the right-wing opposition. Olivier Véran, the government spokesman, recently got into telephone contact with the young Hedi, seriously injured by an LBD shot. The former Minister of Health expressed his “care” and his “benevolence” to the young man and wished him a “speedy recovery”. The policeman, accused of being the author of the shooting in question, was kept in pre-trial detention this Thursday by the Court of Appeal of Aix-en-Provence. Asked at the microphone of Europe 1, the RN deputy for Eure, Kévin Mauvieux, condemns this initiative
“In terms of communication, we can hardly do worse,” said the Norman elected official. “In an ongoing investigation, the government prefers to call the person who is against the police rather than the policeman himself or the 800 policemen who were injured during the riots,” he continues.
“We already have a presumption of guilt on the policeman”
The parliamentarian evokes a “slightly quick decision” on the part of Olivier Véran. All the more so in this context which is not very favorable to the police, according to him. “We already have a presumption of guilt on the police officer who remained locked up during this procedure when in reality the procedure is not over and the investigation is underway”, continues Kévin Mauvieux.
This phone call from Olivier Véran is likely to reinforce the “unease” within the police, believes the elected member of the National Rally. A situation “that we have known for a few weeks and which makes the police do not feel supported at all”, concludes the deputy.
