the fans “jostling or attacked” represent “a failure”, recognizes the prefect Lallement – ​​Liberation

The Paris police chief is heard in the Senate this Thursday about the chaos of the Champions League final between Real and Liverpool on May 28.

Public questioning is usually not his cup of tea. But subject to questions from senators this Thursday morning after the fiasco of the organization of the Real Madrid-Liverpool Champions League final, even Didier Lallement cannot deny.

The Paris police prefect acknowledged that the police management around the May 28 event was “obviously a failure”, mentioning people “pushed or assaulted” et “shaken image” from France. “It’s a wound for me”, he added. Before emphasizing: “But the match stood and there were no serious injuries or fatalities.”

The Culture and Laws Committees will then hear a representative of the French Football Federation at the start of the afternoon, then the mayor of the metropolis of Liverpool, Steve Rotheram. Last week, it was the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin and the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra who went on the grill of the Senate.

More information to come.
