Alexandre Benalla will have the right to a trial for two cases.
The former collaborator of Emmanuel Macron will be tried from September 13 to October 1 for violence committed during the demonstration on May 1, 2018 and the fraudulent use of diplomatic passports, the Paris Criminal Court announced on Tuesday.
The first affair had broken out with revelations from the World.
On videos found by the newspaper, we saw Alexandre Benalla, then in charge of mission at the Elysee Palace, wearing a visor helmet of the police, hitting a protester on the Place de la Contrescarpe in Paris.
These images had caused a political scandal.
The second case concerns the use for several months by Alexandre Benalla of his diplomatic passports, after his dismissal from the Elysee Palace on July 20, 2018.
For a "good administration of justice", the criminal court ordered Tuesday the junction of the two cases, during a hearing of procedure.
The trial will be held before the 10th Criminal Division on the afternoons of September 13 to 16 inclusive, from September 22 to 24 inclusive, then from September 27 to October 1 inclusive.
Vincent Crase also summoned
Alexandre Benalla will therefore appear in the first part for "violence in meetings, interference without title in the exercise of a public function, carrying a weapon, public use and without the right of a badge, violation of professional secrecy and disclosure of video protection images ”.
At his side, Vincent Crase, former employee of the Republic on the move, will be prosecuted for "violence in meetings, public use and without the right of a badge, carrying a prohibited weapon and deleting data".
Two former high-ranking officers of the Paris Police Prefecture, suspected of having handed over to Alexandre Benalla the CCTV images of the Place de la Contrescarpe, will be tried for "disclosure of CCTV images and violation of professional secrecy".
Concerning the second part, Alexandre Benalla will be judged for "forgery, use of forgery in writing and public use without the right of a badge".
This trial may not be the last.
Three other legal proceedings concerning the former collaborator of the president are still pending.
A procedure for "failure to report to the HATVP (High Authority for the Transparency of Public Life)" was dismissed in February 2020.
