A Defense Council was held on Sunday, a few days after the attack on a college professor in Yvelines.
After the assassination on Friday of college professor Samuel Paty, the Defense Council chaired by Emmanuel Macron decided, Sunday, October 18, to strengthen the security of schools at the start of the school year and to conduct “concrete actions” rapid against associations or individuals authors of messages of hatred or support after the assassination of the teacher, said the Elysee.
The head of state “asked that we move quickly to action and that no respite be given to those who organize to oppose the republican order”, added the Elysée, at the end of this meeting of 2:30 with six ministers and the anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-François Ricard.
In the viewfinder of the government and the Head of State are notably the authors of the 80 messages of support for the killer spotted on social networks. They will be the subject of control procedures from Monday.
