Europe 1 with AFP

On Twitter, Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin on Wednesday denounced the “unbearable” death threats to which the spokesperson for the National Federation of Firefighters of France (FNSPF) was the subject “after opposing publicly to the reintegration of unvaccinated firefighters”.

Gérald Darmanin on Wednesday denounced the “unbearable” death threats to which the spokesman of the National Federation of Firefighters of France (FNSPF) was the subject “after having publicly associated himself with the reintegration of non-vaccinated firefighters “. “Whatever one’s opinion, these attacks are unbearable,” wrote the Minister of the Interior on Twitter. The spokesperson for the FNSPF, Eric Brocardi, told AFP that he had been the subject of death threats “since Tuesday”. “Several complaints are in progress,” he said.

Direct threats

At the end of July, he had given in the magazine Marianne that the “understaffing” among firefighters “existed before the Covid crisis”, adding: “we assume the same shortcomings if tomorrow (unvaccinated firefighters) were reinstated.” “So far there have been comments but no direct threats,” said Eric Brocardi, who was again questioned on the issue “last week on a television set”. According to Civil Security, less than 200 professional firefighters out of 41,800 and 5,000 non-professional firefighters out of 197,000 have not been vaccinated and have in fact been suspended.

The FNSPF “will also file a complaint”, said its president, Gregory Allione, who gave his “full support” to the spokesperson. Earlier in the day, the mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, had assured on Twitter his “full support” for Eric Brocardi.

The spokesperson for civil security, Alexandre Jouassard, also told AFP that he had been the subject of messages of insults and threats. “We will do what is necessary in terms of filing complaints and monitoring reports to the Pharos platform because this cannot continue,” he said.
