The socialist mayor of Villeurbanne, Jean-Paul Bret, judged "shameful" on Sunday the reaction of the extreme right after the knife attack in his city Saturday, it tempting according to him "to use a dramatic event to his profit ".
Saturday night, shortly after the announcement of the attack perpetrated by a 33-year-old Afghan man who killed one and wounded eight in this city of the Lyon metropolis, the president of the National Rally Marine Le Pen quickly blasted "the laxity of the "French migration policy which it says" seriously threatens the safety of the French ".
"This is the classic reaction of the extreme right, which tries to use a dramatic event for its benefit.It is very little glorious for those who have these words, and who rushed in a rather shameful way in what is a terrible news ", reacted on RTL the mayor Villeurbanne.
"Murder, rape, assault, migratory subversions ..."
After Marine Le Pen, RN Jordan Bardella had outbid, also on Twitter, ensuring that "the Villeurbanne attack ends a summer during which have multiplied in Europe murders, rapes and assaults involving migrants". "The return is busy, but Macron can not avoid the issue of ensauvagement, and its major cause: the migratory submersion," said Jordan Bardella. Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, President of Debout France, also asked about the same social network: "How long will the French still have to support the government's lax migration?"
"This terrible incident can not be confused with the migration policy that can be conducted at the country level," retorted Jean-Paul Bret. "I'm not a supporter of the government, but you have to keep your reason." "It is normal that there are asylum seekers in this country, to link the situation (of the suspect) and the crime, and to trade it, it remains something rather shameless", he insisted.
The vagueness remained Sunday on the motives that led the suspect to attack the passers-by knife near a metro station in Villeurbanne, before being arrested. According to the police, the suspect is for the moment little talkative and rough in his remarks. The prosecutor of the Republic of Lyon must speak in front of the press around 15 hours.
