Nine others recording music in the basement were also beaten, Zecler’s lawyer said. According to her, the violence only stopped when one of the officers saw that they were being filmed. Zecler was taken to the police station.
According to Zecler, who says he does not know why he was arrested, the agents insulted him and expressed themselves racist. He was injured in the head, arms and legs. He has reported it.
The agents have been suspended by order of the French government. Both the police themselves and the French Public Prosecution Service have opened an investigation.
“I am shocked by the images,” said Justice Minister Dupond-Moretti in a TV interview. He denies that the police are racist. “There are racist cops, just like there are racist lawyers and racist bakers. But to say that the police are racist is not true.”
It is the second video-based police brutality study in a week. On Tuesday, the government ordered an investigation after officers were filmed in the violent eviction of a migrant camp in Paris.
This week, the French House of Representatives passed a law that limits the possibilities of distributing films on which officers can be recognized. Journalists and civil rights organizations fear that this law will lead to police violence more often going unpunished. The law has yet to pass through the Senate.
