(en) France, UCL press release: Violent colonel in Kanaky, a new affront to feminists (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 24 Aug 2021 10:39:35 +0300


A Kanaky gendarmerie colonel appointed despite a history of domestic violence. Another unacceptable denial of women's rights. ---- An investigation by Médiapart revealed, Wednesday, August 18, that the gendarmerie colonel of Kanaky appointed in May 2021 had been convicted of domestic violence in 2018. During his trial at the court of appeal, in May 2021, where his prison sentence suspended sentence was commuted to a fine, he admitted the acts of violence and his responsibility. Yet the colonel was appointed after his conviction at first instance. ---- This reality is not new. It should be noted that 9.5% of calls made to 3919 (emergency number for domestic violence) are made by spouses and ex-spouses of police officers. However, the decision to appoint a gendarmerie commander (highest ranking in Kanaky) denotes a contempt for the issue of violence against women, yet a great cause of the five-year term. Is this how the State intends to strengthen confidence in filing complaints and combating feminicides ?

The UCL immediately calls for the dismissal of Colonel Eric Steiger from his duties as commander of the Kanaky gendarmerie. We are and we will be in the fight against violence against women and for support for victims worthy of the name.
