The

bill relating to the management of the health crisis

, which establishes a vaccination obligation for some and a health pass for all, disproportionately runs up against a number of fundamental freedoms and therefore incurs censorship by the Constitutional Council

While more than 200,000 demonstrators (according to figures from the authorities) marched last weekend across France, the Constitutional Council is due to examine this Thursday, August 5, the controversial text of the law on the extension of the health pass.

A group of lawyers supported by the signatures of nearly 54,000 citizens, filed on Monday a brief accompanying the referral to the Constitutional Council by parliamentarians on the unconstitutionality of the law containing the extension of the health pass.

"

The health pass affects the most fundamental rights

",

explains

to

Le Figaro

Maître Jade Dousselin, lawyer and spokesperson for the collective.

"

We would have preferred that the parliamentary debate could be done calmly instead of studying 1,800 amendments in less than 48 hours

", she regrets.

Legal battle at all levels

The purpose of this brief is to "

put pressure

", indicates the lawyer even if she recognizes that the decision that the wise men will make on Thursday will undoubtedly be favorable to the text of the law, "

while it should be widely retoked for satisfy us

”.

But this legal action taken in the name of the tens of thousands of signatures collected will only be the beginning of the legal battle, warns Arnaud Durand, one of the lawyers who wrote the text.

"

If the Constitutional Council accepts the law in its entirety, we will wage an intense legal battle on all levels

", he announced in the déjàvu press release, at the initiative of the process.

This collective, born last February, had already launched a petition calling for more transparency on data relating to Covid-19 and anti-Covid vaccination and in particular on purchasing contracts between the State and laboratories supplying vaccines.

The petition has gathered more than 200,000 signatures to date.
