A curfew in addition to confinement? This is what was going to be decided this Tuesday for the inhabitants of Paris and perhaps also for those of Île-de-France, announced this Tuesday morning the spokesman of the government Gabriel Attal. Before Matignon denies, referring a possible decision to consultation with the mayor of Paris. Back on a quack.
What Gabriel Attal said
Guest of the morning of RMC and BFMTV, the young government spokesperson took stock of the first days of the new confinement, which entered into force throughout the territory on Friday. 100,000 checks were carried out and 14,000 verbalizations were drawn up until Sunday evening in France, said Gabriel Attal. Among the abuses, the latter cited the example of an evening in the backyard of a building in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, having gathered several dozen people.
“In view of these situations which have been observed, we are going to re-establish a curfew in Paris and perhaps in Île-de-France. It is the Minister of the Interior who will specify it during the day, a decree will be issued ”, he then indicated. The schedule could again be 9 p.m. “We are putting in place measures that are difficult for the French, even if the vast majority of French people respect, it is unbearable for many French people to see others who do not respect the rules and to have the feeling that there is a form of laissez-faire ”, further justified Gabriel Attal.
What Matignon replied
In a response sent to several media including Le Parisien / Today in France a few minutes after this speech, Matignon let it be known that “this decision is absolutely not decided at this stage”. “The Prefect of Police referred to this measure with regard to certain situations observed in the evening in Paris. […] This measure will be coordinated with the Parisian municipality by the prefecture but has not been decided at this stage. A decision will be taken in the coming days ”, specify the services of the Prime Minister, thus denying the words of the government spokesman (whose entourage has not responded to our requests at this time).
A police source confirms that “the principle of a new curfew is not in effect at this stage” and that “discussions will be initiated with the City of Paris. “
What would a curfew consist of?
If nothing is decided “at this stage”, a curfew could therefore be put in place in the Paris region in the coming days. Even if this had not been clearly stated by Emmanuel Macron and by the government after the announcement of the reconfinement, it was a good substitute for the curfew hitherto in force in 54 departments, the ministry said. ‘Interior.
A new curfew would consist “in setting a night time for the closure of shops authorized to operate”, according to Matignon. Food stores, in particular, could thus be concerned. On the other hand, nothing says that the possibility of leaving your home to take the air (jogging, walking your dog, etc.) less than a kilometer from your home and for a maximum of one hour. This will undoubtedly be the whole object of the consultations.
