Has a Lyonnaise high school student of Muslim faith been threatened by relatives because of a relationship with a non-Muslim teenager, as

Le Progrès



The Lyon public prosecutor's office announces in any case this Friday that an investigation has been opened at the La Martinière-Diderot high school, in the first arrondissement of Lyon.

The teenager and her family, who reside in Vénissieux, have indeed been victims of "acts of threats or acts of intimidation".

The prosecution specifies that "these facts could be part of a neighborhood conflict that has continued for several years".

"It's high time to say stop"

As of Thursday, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region took this incident very seriously by announcing the immediate dispatch of security agents in front of the establishment of the slopes of Croix-Rousse, and this perhaps until the end. of the school year.

Warned of “an intimidation maneuver” on the part of a suspect, the President of the Region Laurent Wauquiez (LR) went there Thursday evening, “extremely angry”.

"It is high time to say stop, we must protect this student, who is a model of republican meritocracy," hammered the elected LR, currently campaigning for the regional.

He denounced the actions of a “band of Islamist thugs” who harassed the young woman, a final year student at the La Martinière-Diderot high school.
