To see what they endure at work.

“The report of the General Inspectorate of Justice, which castigates the action of a supervisor during the homicide of the Corsican separatist Yvan Colonna does not stop making grumble the prison unions which block this Thursday morning the prison of Arles (Bouches-du-Rhône) where the prisoner died.

“We are there in support of our unjustly accused colleague, the responsibilities are at all levels but certainly not at the bottom of the ladder.

It is inadmissible to find a scapegoat to cover up all the errors of the administration”, denounced Thomas Forner, Ufap delegate from Arles.

“He was in his sector, not gone for a walk”

"We made a prosecution report, the light was not shed on this case, it's too easy to condemn a simple supervisor for others to escape justice.

Today, all the agents on the territory feel concerned, ”continued Thomas Forner, asking for the lifting of the sanctions against the supervisor pointed out by the report.


Yvan Colonna is dead, three weeks after his attack by a radicalized inmate in prison
