The Paris Criminal Court postponed until June 1 the trial of the woman suspected of having committed violence against a firefighter during the May 1 demonstration.
Until then, the court has indicated that she will be placed under judicial supervision. The prosecution had for its part requested that she be placed in pre-trial detention, in order to avoid further violence on her part.
The Code of Criminal Procedure provides that a defendant may refuse to be tried on the day of her immediate appearance, in order to have time to better prepare her defence. The defendant’s lawyers had thus requested a postponement.
The 38-year-old woman was to be tried for “violence against a person in charge of a public service mission, contempt, rebellion, participation in a group with a view to committing violence or damage during a demonstration and obstructing the arrival of relief intended to combat a dangerous disaster for people”, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.
She had been arrested by the police around 6 p.m. last Sunday, near Place de la Nation, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, after hitting the helmet of a firefighter to prevent him from putting out a fire. .
Already known to the police
During the arrest, she resisted. On her, the officials had found a hammer, a pair of scissors and a gas mask.
This 38-year-old woman is also already known to the police for at least two acts of violence against law enforcement officers.
In addition, of the 47 police custody carried out following the violence of May 1, nine judgments in immediate appearance must take place soon and ten subsequent appearances on summons have been initiated by the justice system.
