Half a dozen people from the chechen community had been arrested this morning (Thursday). The operations carried out by the BIS and the RAID took place in several cities in the East of France, including Dijon.
A half-dozen members of the chechen community were arrested on Thursday 18 June in the morning in several cities in the East of France, in connection with the violence of the last days Dijon (Côte-d’or), a-t-on learned from a police source, confirming information of Europe 1.
Dijon but also Strasbourg, Besançon, and Troyes, and Saint-Etienne
These arrests, which arise after violence related to a settlement of account between the people of the district of Grésilles and members of the chechen community, occurred at Dijon, but also in Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin), Besançon (Doubs), Troyes (Aube) and Saint-Etienne (Loire), said this source.
The arrests involve suspects who initiated or relayed calls for the mobilization on social networks, or identified on the videos, says the same source. These operations have been carried out by the Raid, and several BRI (brigades de recherche et d’intervention).
In Dijon, as elsewhere in France, the Republic never will recede in the face of violence and to those who would like to establish zones of non-law.
I greet the courageous commitment and the poise of our forces of the order : thanks to their action, these acts will not go unpunished. pic.twitter.com/ueiEzXtWOC
