Ultra-right activists arrested in Paris: Marc de Cacqueray-Valmenier in turn released after his police custody

The day after the arrest of 39 members of the ultra-right in Paris, including around twenty S files, 38 of them were released on Sunday with a decision to classify them without further action, Le Parisien learned from a judicial source. These activists were arrested on Saturday around 4 p.m., at the exit of the Charonne cemetery, where they had just paid tribute to the far-right writer Robert Brasillach, sentenced to death at the Liberation for acts of collaboration.

Only one police custody had been extended: that of Marc de Cacqueray-Valmenier, ex-leader of the small group “Zouaves Paris”, dissolved in 2022. He was finally released this Monday at the end of the afternoon, without prosecution, at the end of a legal imbroglio. Released from police custody in the morning, the activist on file S was immediately placed in detention on suspicion of violation of his judicial control in the context of the case of violence against SOS racism during a meeting of ‘Eric Zemmour in Villepinte. This is not the case: the ultranationalist was ultimately not banned from appearing in the capital, a measure which had been lifted at the request of his lawyer several weeks ago. Likewise, he would not have violated his ban on demonstrating on public roads, the courts having finally ruled that this questionable gathering at the Charonne cemetery did not constitute a demonstration. When asked, his criminal lawyer from Lyon, Me Clément Diakonoff, did not wish to speak.

Before being arrested, these activists had been seen near the union demonstration against the far right on the Place de la République. At least two of them were equipped with crutches, which could be considered weapons by destination. Their arrest by the Brav-M police officers was decided on suspicion of participation in an armed gathering with a view to committing violence during this union demonstration. But the procedure was ultimately dismissed for insufficiently characterized offense, the investigation not having made it possible to materialize a desire to take down suspects.
