The senior civil servant and the commander, stationed in the legal division of the DGPN, were both suspended.

Searches took place at the DGPN, said the Paris prosecutor's office.

The general inspectorate of the national police (IGPN) is in charge of the investigation, which was opened on May 6 for "

fraud in an exam or a competition and complicity in this offense

", specified the prosecution.

This investigation will have to determine “

the extent of the fraud

”, indicated a police source, adding that at this stage the hypothesis of “

individual fraud

” is preferred.

Possible delay in the police reform project

This case was brought to light during judicial wiretaps targeting the candidate, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The investigators intercepted exchanges between this woman and the director on the escape of the subjects.

According to a police source, the candidate had been wiretapped to better monitor her brother, targeted in a separate investigation in the North and who was difficult to trace because of his regular changes of telephone chips.

At the DGPN, Frédéric Dupuch led the reform project of the national police, vilified by the judicial police sector and which consists of bringing together, at the level of the department, the different professions (public security, judicial police, border police, and intelligence) .

This reform could therefore be delayed in its implementation, scheduled for 2023.

Previously, Frédéric Dupuch was director of proximity security for the Paris conurbation (DSPAP).

He was sacked in 2019 after the violence that occurred during the demonstrations of "

yellow vests
