proposals “in a fortnight” against violence in stadiums, promises Darmanin – Liberation

After a meeting on Tuesday, the Minister of the Interior explained that work tracks have been set on four subjects, including that of sanctions and responsibilities for stopping matches in the event of overflows. They should soon arrive on Jean Castex’s desk.

An announcement of announcements. Two days after the aggression against Dimitri Payet during Lyon-Marseille, the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin said on Tuesday that measures to improve security in the stadiums will be proposed “In two weeks to the Prime Minister and the governing bodies of football”. A Following a meeting in Beauvau with the football authorities, several club presidents as well as the justice and sports ministers, Darmanin reported on “Four subjects” which will be dug in the next few days.

“The first is the one […] of the prohibition of stages and answers. The question of securing the stadiums itself, CCTV cameras and nets ”, according to the Minister of the Interior. This new “task force” will also work on “The issue of private security since we need to improve control over access to stadiums”, according to the minister.

“How do you stop a match?”

“And then finally, arguably the most important question on Sunday: the process of deciding who to stop a game. How do you stop a match? What responsibility to stop this match? Between, of course, the essential role of the referee, [auquel] we are all extremely attentive, and the role, also, of the prefect, since there is a question of public order which arises ”, he added.

The wait for a decision on the stoppage or resumption of the match on Sunday evening had been strongly criticized. Nearly 60,000 people had to wait for more than two hours in the aisles of the Lyon stadium to find out whether the meeting would, yes or not, resume its course, after the assault suffered by Dimitri Payet.

On the Lyon lawn, the OM captain, who has since lodged a complaint, received a plastic water bottle on his head when taking a corner after only four minutes of play. OL have now and already been sentenced to a total closed-door match from his stadium as a precaution.

Stadium incidents have multiplied in Ligue 1 stadiums since the start of the season, in Nice, Lens, Montpellier or even Angers. And so now in Lyon.
