On the left, the party is without Mélenchon

DECRYPTION – If the left has recovered after the municipal elections, the rebels remain mired in court cases.

It couldn’t have been worse. While the left continues to rejoice in the “Green wave” which swept through the big cities of France during the second round of the municipal elections, the rebels have no heart to celebrate. Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s movement is once again mired in legal troubles. The chained Duckrevealed on Wednesday that a preliminary investigation had been opened by the Paris prosecutor’s office for “breach of trust”, and entrusted to the financial brigade of the PJ of Paris.

At issue: the payment of damages to the five sentenced Insubmissives – including Jean-Luc Mélenchon – after their virulent obstruction during searches at the headquarters in the fall of 2018. They all owed them 26,500 euros of moral damage to members of the forces of the jostled order. The amount has been paid, but comes from… La France Insoumise, and not from the persons accused. Justice is questioning the legality of this operation.
