A69: an opponent of the project sentenced for throwing projectiles at the police


Justice rages after clashes around the A69. A 45-year-old man was sentenced Monday to four months in prison under an electronic bracelet for having thrown projectiles against the police in Saïx (Tarn), where opponents of the Toulouse-Castres motorway project are camped. “I sent back plastic pucks” using a racket on Saturday, he admitted before the Castres court. The prosecution had requested eight months of home detention under electronic surveillance (DDSE).

Also in Castres, another opponent of the A69 was sentenced on Monday to a six-month suspended prison sentence for having insulted the police on Friday and having rebelled during his arrest. This 31-year-old man admitted that he was not “easy to catch”, while specifying: “I am not for violence, it is absolutely false”. In a press release, the prefect of Tarn “welcomes” these court decisions, adding: “The offenders will not have the last word”.

From Friday to Sunday, clashes took place in the immediate vicinity of the camp of gendarme activists, who made massive use of tear gas but remained outside the ZAD (zone to be defended) which emerged in November between a departmental road and a railway line on private land with contested status.
