378 ARRESTED IN PARIS AFTER SATURDAY RIOTS

Paris / The Paris prosecutor, Rémy Heitz, said 378 people are being held in police custody after the violent riots that occurred on Saturday during the demonstration of “yellow vests”, an extraordinary number that has forced to distribute them in police stations throughout the Paris region.

 

 

“Among the detainees, there is a certain variety of profiles but we have many older men, between 30 and 40 years old who come from the provinces to participate in acts of violence, although they claim responsibility for the ‘yellow vests’ movement,” said Heitz in a press conference.

Among the detainees, there are also 33 minors and other profiles of “young people from the Parisian region, more motivated by crime”.

According to Heitz, the crowd of detainees has forced them to disperse them by police stations in Paris and the periphery and, “in the face of this exceptional situation,” the number of magistrates has tripled to deal with cases.

The detainees will appear before the justice in urgent procedures as of this Monday in their majority by violence against the public authority, degradation of the public highway, regrouping with violent objectives or to take arms like knives and projectiles, among other crimes.

The prosecutor pointed out that these infractions are punishable by imprisonment of 3 to 7 years, although the sentences will be applied individually, case by case.

In addition, the judicial police has opened investigations in cases of more serious crimes, of which Heitz didn’t give more details, and assured that justice will be applied firmly so that “there isn’t impunity after these events marked by extreme violence.”

On his third Saturday of mobilization against the new rise in fuel taxes and the hardening of the cost of living, the protest resulted in 682 arrests throughout France (412 in Paris) and 263 injuries, including five serious and 81 members of the forces of order.
