In the city of Bron, near Lyon, jihadist tags threatening the mayor, Jérémy Bréaud (LR), as well as the police were found on Thursday, October 22. Legal action has been taken.
According to local outlet actuLyon, these tags, which were painted by about twenty individuals on the night of Wednesday 21 to Thursday 22 October, were discovered in the morning by a security agent. On these inscriptions, one can read “Jérémy Bréaud we will behead you fdp [fils de porcs = son of porcs]”. Regarding the police, it is also written: “Nik la mumu [police municipale = f*ck the local police]. ”
These threats come six days after the beheading of Samuel Paty, a history teacher at a college, by a terrorist, but it is not the first time that the local elected representative has been threatened with death.
Indeed, on October 10, threats against him had already been discovered on the walls of the city. These threats, reported actuLyon, were noticed on the day after an operation carried out by the national and municipal police had resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of narcotics. The mayor had established a direct link between this operation and the threats to his life.
At present, no information has surfaced on the reason for the tags discovered on Thursday. They could be linked to the agenda of the mayor who has made local security his priority.
The Synergie-Officiers union, for its part, commented on the tags aimed at the police on Twitter: “Firmness does not please the scum. Elected officials are now targets.”
The Minister of the Interior also spoke on this subject: “Death threats against the mayor – ‘we will behead you!’ in Bron: At my request, the prefect will take legal action and provide protection for the elected representative. Support for this mayor, as for all elected officials who are victims of threats.”
