On Friday evening Laurent Nuñez had announced the opening of an administrative investigation and the referral to justice by ensuring that "the first elements in possession" of the police headquarters "suggest that these people do not belong to the BRAV-M (brigade for the repression of violent motorcycle actions).

Guest of the "Grand Rendez-vous" Europe 1 / Cnews / Les Echos, the Minister of the Interior said he had "proposed" that Mr. Nuñez "could be invited to Mr. Hanouna's show on Monday". "And I believe he will be there," he added.

Friday night, on the set of "Touche pas à mon poste", three hooded men and a woman, hooded, a black hood on their heads and the modified voice, an orange armband marked police on the arm, presented themselves for some as members of the BRAV-M.

However, according to corroborating sources, none is a member of the BRAV-M. Cedric, who presented himself as the spokesman, was dismissed from the national police in December 2022, Darmanin said.

As a petition calling for the dissolution of this police unit gathered more than 240,000 signatures on Sunday, the interior minister invited parliamentarians, "including those who insult them", to come and see how the police work.

He proposed to LFI MP Ugo Bernalicis to "spend a day" with police officers from the BRAV or CRS.

"There is enough of pouring torrents of insults on the police and gendarmes!" exclaimed the minister.
