Turn around. The Paris police chief, who said on Tuesday that he wanted to move crack users from northeastern Paris to a railway wasteland in Bercy, announced on Friday, January 28, the abandonment of this project. In a press release, Didier Lallement “takes note of the virulent opposition of the mayor of Paris to any project to move crack users” and “can only note its impediment”, whether “to the site of the 12th arrondissement or to any other site”, regretting that “the town hall (has) refused to make the slightest proposal”.

For the town hall, the abandonment of the project was “inevitable, given the incongruity” of the project and these oppositions, reacted Anne Hidalgo’s first deputy, Emmanuel Grégoire. He was “delighted with this decision”, but denounces a “big manipulation” on the part of the police headquarters. It is a “political coup to return the ball to our camp by proposing the worst”, underlined the health assistant, Anne Souyris, reproaching the government for its “bad faith”.
