Paris indymedia attacked by French minister of the interior.

category international | arts and media | other press author Thursday December 23, 2010 23:10author by .:. iosaf Report this post to the editors

Hortefeux the minister of the interior (= to minister of justice or home secretary) has found a new enemy now that Romanians, women in veils & Africans are old hat.

Yep.

Paris indymedia is according to him an anti-police website which facilitates the indentification of serving police officers thus leading to their general ostracisation & probably unpopularity.
Nice to think in the times of wikileaks that an IMC site (Paris) can still get the judgers foaming at their commercial press bits.

I doubt that this is really an issue for most police or "flics" as they are known to the French. & being a regular reader of http://www.paris.indymedia.org I kind of find myself surprised that any member of Gallic plod could worry that they are identifiable & up for community shaming from the selection of protest photographs & videos.....


For if one thing we on the left know...........................
The police do like to suit up for their rucks & leave the nicities of individualistic fashion behind.
Theirs is indeed the garb of paramilitary terror.


anyway............
maybe this story will get worse
so it's worth filing away on indymedia ireland's "other press" section.

Le ministre de l’Intérieur, Brice Hortefeux, annonce, ce jeud, qu’il va porter plainte contre le site paris.indymedia.org, auquel les syndicats reprochent d’être «antiflics» avec sa publication de photos de policiers en civil permettant de les identifier.

«J’ai décidé de porter plainte contre le site internet dont les auteurs ont fait le choix délibéré de publier des photographies de policiers en civil, de les filmer et de les identifier», a prévenu le ministre lors d’une visite à Grenoble, jugeant «ces procédés totalement inacceptables et irresponsables». «Les propos tenus sur ce site sont injurieux et indignes et il n’était pas question de laisser faire», justifie-t-il.

Le ministère a précisé que le dépôt de plainte pourrait avoir lieu dès la semaine prochaine.

Des photos de policiers en civil ainsi que des films ont été publiés sur ce site qui en utilisant notamment leurs pages Facebook permet de les identifier. Le site avait provoqué la colère des syndicats de police qui réclamaient une action de la place Beauvau.
«Flou juridique»

Depuis quatre jours, le site propose aux internautes d’identifier, de photographier et de filmer «chaque flic en civil», le tout «pour que l’insécurité gagne leur camp». «Nous identifierons un à un ces déchets», promet ce site, qui compare la police française avec la Milice de l’Occupation pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Ce site s’inspire d’un concept né aux Etats-Unis dans les années 1980 afin de lutter contre les violences policières appelé "copwatch", où des patrouilles de citoyens filment ou photographient les interventions policières qui sont ensuite diffusés sur internet.

Par ailleurs, certains policiers, par leur fonction - comme ceux appartenant au RAID ou à la DNAT - sont protégés et divulguer leur identité «constitue une infraction pénale», selon une source proche de la direction de la Préfecture de Police de Paris. «Dans la mesure où ils publient les identités et les photos de policiers en civil, et où ils dénigrent la fonction, ils sont passibles de poursuites pour diffamation et atteinte au droit à l’image», d'après l’avocate Anne-Laure Compoint. Mais le fait de diffuser des photos de policiers sur la voie publique «n’est pas répréhensible», ajoute-t-elle, estimant qu’il existe «un flou juridique» sur cette question.
