On June 6, 2013 at the seat of the United Nations in Geneva, on the occasion of the process of the Universal Periodic Review of France, the ECLJ, represented by its director, Grégor Puppinck, addressed the Council of Human Rights in order to denounce the ongoing police brutality against the manifestation in favor of the family and the rights of children.
The recent events demonstrate in particular the grave abuse of the use of force and of the process of arrest and of identity checks against the protestors. With regard to custody by the police and abuse of identity checks, it is about a structural problem, also denounced by other NGO’s, and which must be resolved. As for the police violence, the victims must be able to have legal recourse against the authors of these violent actions.
