The French Government has also promised that there will be no impunity if ministers are confirmed at clandestine parties and dinners, as reported on a television program.
The M6 channel broadcast an investigation in which, through a hidden camera, shows an organizer of those dinners and parties admitting that members of the French Executive had participated, although he had not identified them.
The hashtag #OnVeutLesNoms (#Queremososnomes) has now become the trend on the social network Twitter, with more than 16 thousand messages from internet users asking who the ministers are and asking for their resignation.
“I asked the Paris Police officer to prove the truth of the facts so that, if they are true, he will pursue the organizers and participants of these clandestine dinners”, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said on Twitter.
The police responded with another message stating that an investigation had been opened.
The delegated Minister of Citizenship, Marlène Schiappa, has already stated that if it is found that any member of the Executive participated in these illegal parties, there will be no privilege.
“If ministers or deputies have broken the rules, there must be fines and sanctions like any other citizen,” he stressed on Europe 1 radio, also adding on Twitter that the resignation is taken for granted if the accusations are confirmed.
Marlène Schiappa’s words were similar to those of the Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno Le Maire, who, although he said he was convinced that his government colleagues did not attend those parties, appealed to the organizer to reveal the names.
The images published by the M6 channel show how in these dinners, with menus between 160 and 490 euros, the health restrictions in force are not respected.
“After going through the door there is no greed. We want people to feel at ease. This is a private club. We want people to feel at home,” said one of the interviewees, who emphasizes that the mask is not mandatory.
This controversy arises at a time when France is beginning its third confinement due to the increase in the number of cases of covid-19 and the number of people admitted to hospitals.
Since March 2020, the covid-19 has caused 6,493 deaths and about 4.7 million people infected in France.
