Mayors of two French cities tell police to stand down on vaccine passport enforcement
Two mayors in France are rebelling against the vaccine passport mandate, saying they will not require the police to enforce the new measures.
Videos of police enforcing the new vaccine passport mandate for restaurants in Paris went viral this week, with many criticizing the police.
The Premier of Victoria has asserted that authorities “won’t hesitate” to go “door-to-door” to carry out mandatory COVID tests on Australians. Read more here: https://www.infowars.com/posts/authorities-wont-hesitate-to-go-door-to-door-to-perform-covid-tests-on-australians/
The mayor of Hayange Fabien Englemann, a member of the National Rally, called on the police not to enforce the vaccine passport mandate, arguing that the law was a violation of freedom.
“It is not the job of the municipal police, nor the national police, to carry out checks to determine whether or not they have the right to drink coffee or eat something,” Mr Engelmann said on Tuesday, according to Le Républicain Lorrain.
“Some municipalities use their municipal police to police the merchants. In Hayange, we are choosing to support them during this difficult time,” he added.
Robert Ménard, the mayor of Béziers, also said that police in his city would not be demanding to see vaccine passes from people in the outdoor areas of cafés and restaurants.
