Statement to the press by FLAG!
PRESSURE ON FLAG !
GENERAL OF GENDARMERIE (FRENCH POLICE FORCE OF MILITARY SECTOR), WE ASK FOR AN EXPLANATION ABOUT POSITION FOR ONE OF OUR MEMBERS
ANSWER OF FLAG ! : NEVER !
Flag ! is association who is in keeping with Right and Low control. We don’t have to answer to Gendarmerie responsible, in that capacity.
About difficult personnel file, Flag ! is the subject of intimidation attempt. It was requested to produce proof of position of member person who solicited his help.
Why this pressure? What can we deduce about this?
Flag ! rise up against attitude and ask of Ministry of Interior to take a firm line with respect of lows of Republic within Gendarmerie strengths conducted by Authority as well as disciplinary measure.
First reason why a lot of Police officers and Police Force of Military sector hesitated to become a member of Flag ! was this one !
Flag ! assure for all Police officers and Police Force of Military sector that Flag ! will continue to defend them against discriminations of sexual orientation od identity gender and won’t agree any pressure !
