The academy of Lille announced this Wednesday the filing of a complaint after "insults" and "threats" against the staff of the college of Lindsay, a teenager victim of school harassment who committed suicide in the Pas-de-Calais.
"The rector condemns with the greatest firmness the insults, intimidation, calls to hatred, serious threats and non-respect of the right to the image of which the staff of the establishment are subject," wrote the rectorate of the academy of Lille in a statement.
A complaint filed by the Rectorate
"These personnel enjoy the support and protection of the state because of their functions. In this sense, a complaint has been filed," he adds. "The threats against them are unacceptable and do not contribute to the fight against this scourge" of bullying.
The Rectorate refused to specify the nature of the facts concerned by this complaint. Security around the institution in question, the Bracke Desrousseaux college in Vendin-le-Vieil (Pas-de-Calais), has been strengthened, the statement said.

Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne promised Tuesday to make "the fight against harassment the top priority of the 2023 school year".
Four minors were indicted in this case for "school harassment leading to suicide" as part of a judicial investigation opened by the Bethune prosecutor's office. An adult was indicted for "death threats". All were placed under judicial control.
An administrative inquiry has also been opened by the Ministry of National Education. The family, who say they received "no support" during Lindsay's harassment, filed a complaint against the institution, the rectorate, police officers and Facebook.
