Olympic Games 2024: already voted by the Senate, the Olympic bill discussed in the National Assembly on March 21


Focusing primarily on security and "augmented" cameras, the bill for the Paris Olympics will go through the National Assembly next March.

Already passed by the Senate, the bill on the Olympic Games, very focused on security, will be on the menu of the National Assembly from March 21, we learned on Tuesday from a parliamentary source.

The main measure is to authorize so-called “ augmented

” cameras

to detect suspicious crowd movements, in view of the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

The cameras of a new type can be deployed as soon as the law comes into force and could therefore be tested for the Rugby World Cup in eight months.

He repeated that he ruled out facial recognition.

Other security-related measures include the possibility of using body scanners, which so far have only been used at French airports.

They may be able to make up for the looming shortage of private security guards.

Another delicate subject: genetic tests in order to comply with world anti-doping standards.

This involves, for example, verifying that there is no genetic doping (gene therapy, messenger RNA, gene editing) but also transfusion or sample substitution.

The right-wing-dominated Senate largely passed the bill on first reading in late January.

The text will be debated by the National Assembly from March 21 to 23, according to the schedule set Tuesday at the conference of presidents of the institution.
