(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #283 - Editorial: Judicial slaughterhouses (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 9 May 2018 23:04:23 +0300

With the new judicial reform, it seems that Minister Belloubet wants to "restore the confidence of our fellow citizens in our justice." Very good. Does it intend to tackle the impunity of white-collar criminals? Or, worry about the police violence that is rampant on a daily basis? Does it intend to call into question, finally, this deadly logic of widespread punishment that sends fools, the poor, drug addicts to prison, to palliate non-existent social policies? ---- In reality, it seems that the term "trust" refers to a purely marketing logic because the purpose of this reform is only the acceleration of a managerial efficiency security. It's about fluidifying the judicial slaughter. The main measures focus on economy of means and profitability: merged courts, extensive mediation procedures, directly verbal consumption of drugs.

Consequences: an acceleration of proceedings that is more of a chain-work than any kind of justice, a gradual privatization of the judicial defense in the framework of the mediation procedures and a greater range of penalties.

But this reform is also safe: the opening of 7,000 places of prison will create a breath of air for most judges and it is a safe bet that the number of detainees will continue to climb. This reform is yet another avatar of an ever more authoritarian state that claims to fight " delinquency " or " insecurity " when it is the main provider.
