French president seeks to extend state of emergency for three more months

5 posts in this topic

PARIS –  President Francois Hollande announced on Friday that the French government will ask parliament to approve a three-month renewal of the state of emergency put into place after the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people.

It would be the second time the measure has been prolonged.

The president's office said Hollande cited "the terrorist threat" in asking the government to present a bill at the Feb. 3 Cabinet meeting seeking a three-month extension of the state of emergency. The current state of emergency is to expire Feb. 26.

A state of emergency gives special powers to authorities, making it easier to place people under house arrest and conduct searches.

Critics contend the measure impinges on personal freedoms to little effect.

I'm sure they'll keep extending this until it becomes permanent. Classic example of government getting power and never wanting to let it go.

They certainly will try to do that.  Perhaps also  an excuse to cancel future elections (in order to keep Le Pen and her party from winning.)

And another one falls to the NWO! Same thing that happened in the U.S. with 9/11. Other dictatorships just put the hammer down openly, they have to do it a little differently with all the people who are used to having some privacy in their lives.
