Christophe Castaner has seized justice this Friday after the revelation of racist messages published on Facebook in a private group bringing together members of the police, said the entourage of the Minister of the Interior.

"If they are proven, these unacceptable words are likely to seriously damage the honor of the national police and gendarmerie, whose men and women are engaged on a daily basis to protect the French, including against racism and discrimination. This is why the Minister of the Interior decided to seize the public prosecutor ”, one specified from the same source, after the revelation of these messages by the news site Streetpress.
