France begins prosecuting citizens who criticize President Macron online

French authorities have begun prosecuting citizens who insult President Emmanuel Macron on social media.

The first unprecedented prosecution is set to occur in northern France where a woman is set to face trial in June for criticizing Macron.

The incident occurred when the woman referred to Macron as “filth” in a Facebook post. If found guilty, she could be issued with a hefty €12,000 fine. reports The woman’s arrest took place last Friday, following a complaint filed by the local administrative office in response to her Facebook post.

Saint Omer prosecutor Mehdi Benbouzid confirmed the arrest and provided details to AFP. The Facebook post in question was published on March 21st, a day prior to Macron’s televised interview with TF1, where he defended his contentious pension reform plans that have incited protests across the nation.

In her Facebook post, the woman had written, “This piece of filth is going to address you at 1:00 pm… it’s always on television that we see this filth.” The accused, a woman in her 50s, was an active participant in the “Yellow Vest” demonstrations that challenged Macron during his initial term in office.

Charged with “insulting the president of the republic,” the woman is set to stand trial in Saint Omer on June 20. Speaking with the regional newspaper La Voix du Nord, the woman expressed her disbelief at the accusations, stating, “They want to make an example of me.”

Identified as Valerie by the newspaper, she recounted her shock upon discovering that police officers had arrived at her home to arrest her. “I asked them if it was a joke, I had never been arrested,” she said. “I am not public enemy number one.”


  1. naturally like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.

  4. How is that even an insult. If the majority of high up people are dirty and corrupted sure people are allowed to call them dirty. As they all hide dirt, they follow their own wealth agency instead working for the people. Sure voters the people are allowed to criticise them in power, we are not yet in china. But it seems they want this to escalate to establish new draconic laws…
