Citing last year’s Paris attacks as justification, the French government is seeking to expand police powers permanently, relaxing rules around the firing of weapons, enabling nighttime raids, and loosening restrictions on searching and detaining suspected terrorists, according to a draft bill seen by the newspaper Le Monde.
Taken in line with there ever expanding definitions of a ‘Terrorist,’ such a move reveals the reality of intent of the corporate state as it shifts its own private security, formerly the french state police force, to kill citizens at will and give the same force the ability to shout ‘terrorist’ for the cover.
Politico Europe reported Tuesday that the draft, sent to the French Supreme Court for review in December, lays out plans to “perennially strengthen the tools and resources at the disposal of administrative and judicial authorities, outside the temporary legal framework implemented under the state of emergency.”
They want more power to prevent legitimate rebellion against the ever creeping corporate state coming form French citizens, powers on top of those already implemented after the highly suspect Paris terror attack.
In November, the French Parliament voted overwhelmingly to extend the state of emergency through the end of February and to increase certain powers including allowing the government to impose a house arrest as long as it has “serious reason to think that the person’s conduct threatens security or the public order.”
Of course the definition of ‘public order,’ which should mean the general public, has now shifted to mean the stakeholder community as the only public the corporate empire recognises, as such any stance against the corporate state can be classed as a public order issue.
In December, the French cabinet backed reform proposals that could see that state of emergency enshrined in the nation’s constitution.
Agence France-Presse reported at the time:
Special policing powers used under the state of emergency such as house arrests and the right to raid houses without clearance by a judge are currently based on an ordinary law which can be challenged at the constitutional court.
In the wake of the Paris attacks that left 130 dead, President Francois Hollande called for the emergency powers to be protected from litigation by placing them in the constitution.
The constitutional reform which are outlined in the draft bill leaked by Le Monde must now be passed by a three-fifths majority in the upper and lower houses of Parliament, where debates will start on February 3.
Europe needs to recognise that this whole charade is a planned move to shift France from a nation under freedom to a nation under full and complete martial law. Europe take note here.
