A 63-year-old Corrézien lodged a complaint, Wednesday, January 5, against the President of the Republic for his comments which he considers “discriminatory” towards people not vaccinated against Covid-19. In an interview with Le Parisien on Tuesday, Emmanuel Macron said: “the unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so we will continue to do it, until the end. That’s the strategy”.
Comments deemed “discriminatory and insulting” by Didier Lalande, a 63-year-old retiree living in Rosiers-d’Egletons in Corrèze, who lodged a complaint for what he calls “defamation and public threats by person in authority”, he explained, document in hand, to an AFP correspondent, confirming information from the newspaper La Montagne.
The man, not vaccinated against Covid-19, who says he is “shocked and injured” by this interview, claims a “symbolic” approach, which has no chance of succeeding, the President of the Republic being covered by his presidential immunity.
“They impose constraints on me that I respect”, but “I find it unbearable to question the citizenship of the unvaccinated” he added. The president’s controversial remarks had triggered a political storm, in the midst of an already very tense examination in the National Assembly of the bill transforming the health pass into a vaccination pass, adopted in pain Thursday.
