The French presidential bodyguard sacked after being filmed assaulting protesters at a demonstration while police watched has appeared before an investigating judge، according to The Guardian.
Paris’s prosecutor’s office opened a judicial investigation into Alexandre Benalla، a member of Emmanuel Macron’s inner circle، and four others implicated in a violent attack against two members of the public.
Benalla، 26، was forced to cancel his wedding as detectives continued to question him.
He was taken into police custody on Friday over the attack on a young man and woman at a May Day march in Paris.
The Paris prosecutor’s office said Benalla and four others went before a judge on Sunday and charges could be brought in the case soon. Benalla faces possible charges of violence by a public official، illegal use of surveillance video and impersonating a police officer.
