"

This decision, both in terms of its target and its motives, marks a major turning point in the institutionalization of political and repressive arbitrariness in France,

" reacted the CCIF in a press release consulted by AFP.

The CCIF sees it as an "

administrative drift

" of the government opening "

the way to the offense of opinion

".

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin for his part welcomed in a tweet the decision of the highest administrative court, believing that the fight against Islamist ideology had taken "

a decisive step

".

A defamation complaint was also filed by the CCIF against Gérald Darmanin in December 2020 before the Court of Justice of the Republic (CJR).

The minister had described the collective as an "

Islamist pharmacy

" working "

against the Republic

" and against which it was necessary "to

stop being naive

".

Me Sefen Guez Guez, lawyer of the associations, had at the time denounced "

slander

" and "

a solely political dissolution

".
