The small town of Boncourt wants to close its borders with France at night in order to reduce burglaries. Such crimes greatly increased after the reopening of the borders between the two countries.
Will the town of Boncourt follow the example of Porrentruy, which had closed its access to a swimming pool to French citizens?
Recently, Switzerland has shown itself to be more and more intolerant towards incivility and crime. And the problem, according to the Swiss, is a French one. Although it is never mentioned, the real problem is Muslim youths from France.
Boncourt, located in the Swiss Jura, thus requested a limitation of traffic from the north of the neighboring Franche-Comté, Le Progrès reported. The town of 1000 inhabitants had observed a drop in delinquency on its territory during Covid-19 confinement.
After the border reopened, burglaries have reportedly increased five-fold between June and July. The municipality accused “the French” in particular.
The mayor of Boncourt had already made a request for closure last November. This had been refused to him, because it does not adhere to the rules of the Schengen area, reported Le Progrès. In addition, frontier workers would have been penalized by this measure.
At the beginning of August, the municipal council of Porrentruy, in Switzerland, decided to reserve the swimming pool of the city to only Swiss residents, in order to “ensure public order and health security”. Until the end of the summer, only Swiss residents will be able to enter the enclosure of the outdoor swimming pool, provided that they show an identity card or a residence permit.
This measure has delighted the regulars and employees at the pool. “Everything is better at the pool, without the French troublemakers,” said a security guard. Another person in charge of the place noticed “people smiling in a vacation spirit, whereas before, because of the troublemakers, they were tense”.
On June 30, 2018, French Muslim youths had provoked a general fight which ended with a head trauma and other injuries.
