VIDEO – The head of urban supervision center, up on the evening of 14 July, told the Journal du Dimanche be under pressure when writing his report following the attack on the Promenade des Anglais.
the police in charge of CCTV in Nice (Alpes-Maritimes) says in an interview with Journal du Dimanche have suffered pressures of the Interior Ministry in drafting a report on the deadly night of 14 July. According to Sandra Bertin in office on the night of attack that made 84 dead on the Promenade des Anglais, a representative of the place Beauvau has instructed him to mention the presence of national police officers on the scene the night of the attack . “I (…) had to deal with a person who asked me pressed a report indicating the points of presence of the municipal police, barriers, and to make clear that we also saw the national police two points in the safety device, “she says JDD.
” Now the national police perhaps was there, but it is not me appeared on videos. This person then asked me to email a modified version of the report, “said the head of urban supervision center (CSU) of the municipality. “I was harassed for an hour, I was ordered to enter specific positions of the national police that I have not seen on screen,” adds Sandra Bertin, also general secretary of the Independent Union of territorial public service (SAFPT) Nice.
a few days after the attack that left 84 dead, the newspaper Libération published an investigation that no national police was present in the police system in place at the entrance of the security perimeter on the Promenade des Anglais. A revelation that sparked intense controversy because it goes against the statements of Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, and the Alpes-Maritimes prefecture.
The police said they finally sent two versions of the report, one changeable and the other not. The head of the video surveillance has also strongly criticized the fact that we have asked to delete some images from the video to “prevent their release to the public.” “The CSU (urban supervision center) exists yet for six years and there has never been any image leaks from us.”
Thursday, Bernard Cazeneuve defending the safety device established seized the General Inspectorate of the national Police (IGPN) for a “technical assessment of the safety system and public order.” The findings of the investigation should be made next week. From his side François Hollande vowed Friday total transparency in the analysis of the safety device deployed that night.
