Legislature: A candidate for a Reconquest! Sentenced to prison on appeal for ‘incitement to hatred’


PARIS: During the Champions League final on Saturday evening, the Stade de France shines a light on the chaos surrounding the future Olympic stadium, the multiple safety issues that accompany the 2024 Olympics and Rugby World Cup in Paris next year.

“A very serious warning”: Stéphane Troussel, head of PS of the Seine-Saint-Denis division, one of the partners of the Paris Olympics organisation, did not leave on Monday. “There should be a collective alert on the estimation of the volume of resources deployed in terms of private security, police resources, transport organization, consumption (drinks, editor’s note)”, summarized in francetv info.

Stéphane Troussel, a regular at the Stade de France, explains that he had never seen “such a disorder” before. Two weeks ago, the same Stade de France broke the audience record with an Indochina concert approaching 100,000 spectators…

While several sources since this weekend have announced that the ticketless fan phenomenon is unique to football and that the public at the Games or even rugby is “smarter”, it’s still hard not to wonder about the management of these future major sporting events.

“Strengthening Management”

Also, brand new Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, who scolded British fans in a tweet on Saturday evening, finally declared on Monday that it was necessary to “strengthen the management of major events”, also referring to “flow management”. drop off shipping” or filtering fields. It was not specified what or how this management would be strengthened.

Currently, the security of major sporting events includes several levels. First the Minister of the Interior, the chief of police, Gérald Darmanin. Under his direction, Ziad Khoury, the national coordinator for the security of the Olympics and key events (CNSCJ), is also the governor of the Paris police.

Another institution affiliated with Matignon is entirely devoted to the Olympic Games and major events: inter-ministerial delegation to the Olympic Games and major events chaired by Michel Cadot. This former Paris police chief spent Saturday evening at the Stade de France security centre. All these players meet regularly with the Olympic Games organizing committee.

And some key points have already been pointed out: first, securing the opening ceremony with a crowd scattered along the banks of the Seine, and even the Place de la Concorde, which will host city sports (skateboarding, crossing, BMX freestyle and basketball). 3×3).

The surroundings of the Stade de France will also be quite busy as the Olympic Aquatics Center is located directly opposite and will be connected by a new footbridge, all not far from the athletes’ village.

While the list of Olympic routes that will facilitate the movement of officials and athletes is yet to be published in the Official Gazette in detail, the issue of transportation is essential.

” Pride ”

In mid-November 2021, then-Prime Minister Jean Castex had asked Gérald Darmanin to make recommendations “for all sites and events by June 2022 at the latest”. At this stage, nothing has been made public yet.

As for the organizers, Cojo has already increased its security-related budget to 295m euros. Until the end of the year, it can still be retouched.

Regarding ticketing, more than 13 million tickets were issued for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, while the Minister of Sports spoke at the end of Monday’s meeting about “systematization of electronic ticketing” and “ways to prevent fraud”. . In the background is the highly sensitive topic of cybersecurity led by Anssi (National Information Systems Security Agency).

Apart from the crucial problem of human resources, namely the number of police, gendarmerie or private security guards and technological resources, there is also the problem of method. This is why Stéphane Troussel requests that “the doctrine of employment and the maintenance of public order be established so that the next organizers can predict”.

“Hosting the Olympics and the Rugby World Cup should be a source of pride for our country, Seine-Saint-Denis and its residents,” he insisted. Sports initiatives in the presence of athletes on Olympic Day, to be held next to the Stade de France on June 26, will erase the tear gas footage of Saturday evening, “a wonderful sports festival.”
