Justice finally turns around.
The Mediapart newspaper is finally authorized, this Wednesday, to publish an investigation into the mayor of Saint-Étienne, Gaël Perdriau, initially censored by an order.
This order, issued urgently on Friday November 18, at the request of Gaël Perdriau, ordered not to publish “new revelations on the political practices of the mayor of Saint-Étienne, based in particular on the same recordings which allowed us to reveal the sextape blackmail scandal of which his first centrist deputy, Gilles Artigues, was the victim, ”explained Edwy Plenel, the publication director of the investigation site.

According to the text of the justice, Mediapart could not "publish all or part of the illicit recording made on November 27, 2017" in the mayor's office "on all media, electronic, paper or other (…) and this under penalty of 10 000 euros per extract published”.
