Strasbourg. The State condemned for the ethical harassment of a gendarme.
The Strasbourg administrative courtroom condemned the State for the “ethical harassment” suffered by a gendarme from the Hochfelden brigade (Bas-Rhin). The courtroom thus contradicted the conclusions of an investigation by the Normal Inspectorate of the Nationwide Gendarmerie (IGGN).
The soldier, in his thirties, complained of verbal and psychological violence dedicated by two hierarchical superiors between 2015 and 2017. In its resolution, dated October 19 and revealed by France 3, the executive courtroom reviews a “actual want to sideline” the navy on the a part of its leaders, and “denigrating remarks” which “exceed the conventional train of hierarchical energy”.
The magistrates additionally underline the “actual animosity” and “the intention to hurt” which animated the 2 superiors of the gendarme. Conversely, the latter “has by no means departed from a respectful perspective in the direction of his hierarchy”, as a number of of his colleagues have attested.
Given the “private and repeated nature” of those actions, the courtroom concluded that there was “ethical harassment” and ordered the State to pay 5,000 euros to the gendarme, in compensation for ethical harm. An administrative investigation, carried out by the IGGN following a report on the federal government platform “Cease Discri”, had beforehand concluded that “the absence of details constituting harassment”.
The courtroom’s resolution “may be very passable, as a result of it’s significantly troublesome to go to the tip of the actions and to have instances of harassment among the many navy acknowledged”, declared Elodie Maumont, the gendarme’s lawyer.
Requested, the regional and departmental teams of the gendarmerie had been unable to point whether or not disciplinary measures had been taken towards the hierarchical superiors in query. In response to Me Maumont, no proceedings have been initiated towards them.
