Vel d’Hiv: "a president who honors Pétain"the majority wind up after the words of Panot

The president of the LFI group in the National Assembly has come under criticism from several ministers of the current government.

Mathilde Panot wanted to hit hard. While this Sunday France commemorates the 80th anniversary of the Rafle du Vel d’Hiv, the deputy of Val-de-Marne and president of the LFI group in the National Assembly wanted to be extremely offensive against Emmanuel Macron. On Twitter, the latter indeed assured that the President of the Republic “(paid) honor to Pétain and 89 RN deputies.”

“80 years ago, the collaborationists of the Vichy regime organized the Vél d’Hiv roundup. Do not forget these crimes, today more than ever, with a President of the Republic who honors Pétain and 89 deputies RN!” she wrote in full.


In response, several ministers and members of the majority reacted strongly to this accusation, still on Twitter. First, Clément Beaune, Minister Delegate for Transport, who apologizes to Mathilde Panot.

“Beyond the shame. We dare not believe it. Remove this message and apologize to France, quickly”, can we read.

“No limit in indecency”, indicates for his part, in a short message, the Minister of Labour, Full Employment and Integration Olivier Dussopt. He is joined by Agnes Firmin Le Bodo, Minister Delegate in charge of Territorial Organization and Health Professions, who simply tweeted “What a shame!”

For David Amiel, MP for Paris, it is a “foul message” which “sullies this day of memory by your pitiful political manipulations.”

“You dishonor yourself,” he concludes.
