After the testimony of Michel, a Parisian music producer who accuses three police officers of having beaten him and of having uttered racist insults, the Minister of the Interior announced that he had asked for the suspension of the three officials.
The Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin asked this November 26 the “suspension” of several police officers who are the subject of an investigation by the Paris prosecutor’s office for “violence” and “forgery in public writing” after the blows received by a music producer on November 21 in Paris, and whose video was posted on social networks.
[Intervention à Paris 17ème]I am pleased that the IGPN was seized by justice on Tuesday.
I ask the police chief to suspend the police officers concerned as a precaution. I hope that the disciplinary procedure can be conducted as soon as possible.

In these images unveiled by Loopsider, a man called “Michel” suffers many blows from the police, in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, while he is at the entrance of a music studio.
It happened on Saturday in Paris. 15 minutes of racist beatings and insults.
The crazy scene of police violence that we reveal is simply amazing and uplifting.
We have to look at it to the end to understand the full extent of the problem. pic.twitter.com/vV00dOtmsg
