Adoption of the vaccination pass: Gérald Darmanin wants to strengthen the protection of elected officials

Elected officials in danger? While the examination of the bill concerning the vaccine pass is due to begin on Monday in public session in the Assembly, the Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin this week asked the prefects to strengthen their protection, for fear of attacks on their against.

The boss of Place Beauvau thus estimated that the police and gendarmerie patrols should now systematically integrate a passage through the homes and offices of elected officials.

According to this telegram dated Wednesday, which AFP was able to consult, the Minister of the Interior is worried about the upcoming parliamentary debate, “likely to give rise to threats or even acts of action against elected officials”.

These fears come as the personal garage of the LREM deputy for Oise, Pascal Bois, in Chambly, was damaged by a fire, on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday. Hostile inscriptions that could be linked to the vaccination pass were tagged on a wall surrounding his home. The elected official explained that he had discovered the messages “Vote no” and “It’s going to fart!”.

The Senlis prosecutor confirmed the “presence of tags that could suggest a motivation linked to hostility to the vaccine pass”.

On Wednesday, 208,000 new cases were identified in France, after about 180,000 cases the day before. Records recorded one after the other since the start of the epidemic.
