Following a column published on the online site “France soir” on January 22, the prosecution had opened an investigation for “provocation to the commission of attacks on the fundamental interests of the Nation”, entrusted to the Repression Brigade of delinquency to people (BRDP) who had heard the singer on February 5.
In this column entitled “J’appelle”, the latter assured that “we must now put the state out of harm’s way to the French people” and called for the “dismissal” of the head of state, Emmanuel Macron.
“The Head of State and his government are wiping their feet on Republican Law as on a doormat” and “we must now put the State structures on notice to put an end to the manifestly unlawful disturbance inflicted on the Nation by his government, ”the artist said.
“The government is insidiously committing a coup in the name of the Covid; and is preparing to institute tyranny as an avatar of the Republic, unbeknownst to the French people,” he also argued.
The prosecution deemed the offense insufficiently characterized, according to Me Emmanuel Ludot, for whom “this decision is logical”. “The public prosecutor does not want to put oil on the fire. I draw a parallel with Corine Masiero. It is the same approach: a cry of alarm on the current situation of artists and intermittents of the spectacle”, has t he added to AFP.
Francis Lalanne, several times a candidate for elections in the past under the environmental banner, is a support for the “yellow vests” movement. He led a “Yellow Alliance” list in the European elections of May 2019, obtaining 0.54% of the vote.
