Chanteloup-les-Vignes: intel on violence suppressed

A note informing authorities of "risks of clashes" in Chanteloup-les-Vignes, Yvelines, was deemed too alarmist by the local boss of territorial intelligence.

    The intelligence officer therefore did not pass on the warning note to his superiors, the departmental director or the prefect of Yvelines.

    According to the Parisian daily Le Canard enchaîné, a note written by Territorial Intelligence officers was not taken seriously by the authorities. Several members of the police have assured the weekly that the ambush of the night from 2 to 3 November, in Chanteloup-les-Vignes (Yvelines) “could have been averted”. The note drafted by the Territorial Intelligence Service on 27 September warned of a “risk of clashes” .

    Intended for the prefect of Yvelines and the director of the departmental territorial intelligence service, the note focuses on the district of Noah, “and especially Trident Square” where urban renewal has been agitating drug dealers of the sector.

    According to the note consulted by Le Canard enchaîné, the “thirty individuals who organise the endemic drug traffic” is working in this sector.

    Sadly however, the document was never passed on because it was judged too alarmist by the local territorial intelligence officer.

    To continue their drug running, the dealers had multiplied their abuses for months before the arson attack. Clearly, tensions had been rising until the night of November 2. On that night, an marquee tent funded to advance ethnic integration was burned down and firefighters and police were greeted with salvos of Molotov cocktails and other mortar fire.

    At the same time, the youth information office was vandalized. For the town, the damage amounted to 800 000 euros just for the marquee.
