According to the news in the French press, the Paris Prosecutor’s Office opened an investigation regarding the incident in which anti-reform demonstrators were threatened and insulted by the police, on the grounds of “violence perpetrated by persons with public authority” and “threats”.
The investigation will be conducted by the National Police Investigation Unit (IGPN), known in France as the “police of the cops”.
