Toulouse: Roxana Maracineanu believes that “it is necessary to widen the sanctions” against the violent supporters
Visiting this Thursday, September 23 in Toulouse, as part of a conference on sport in the service of health in business, the Minister Delegate in charge of sports Roxana Maracineanu spoke about the repeated violence on the sidelines of football matches .
The minister delegate in charge of sports and former swimming champion Roxana Maracineanu, visiting the Toulouse Stadium this Thursday, September 23 at the invitation of the mutualist group VYV “Move collectively, it’s capital! “Within the framework of” sport serving the health of employees and the company “, was especially focused on the hot topic of violence in football stadiums.
Between Marseille and Angevin supporters eager to discover it on the lawn after SCO-OM, this Bordeaux bus fell into an “ambush” in Montpellier on Wednesday evening, the football world is in turmoil. But no one really knows what to do.
Roxana Maracineanu offered some avenues for reflection: “These are regrettable attitudes, behaviors that I strongly condemn,” she said. We have done everything with the health pass and the clubs to bring the stadiums to full capacity. We had also done everything, before the health crisis, to facilitate and alleviate the constraints that weighed on supporters in their travels. In particular in the dialogue which can be established with the prefects on the territories for the consideration of the displacements and the organization of the matches ”.
But in view of the recent slippages on the sidelines of sporting events, the minister does not hide his fears. “It is true that today, I manage to fear for the continuation of all these relaxations, because if it continues like that, we will have to discuss this subject with the Ministry of the Interior. “
The national anti-hooliganism delegation will hold an upcoming meeting, said Roxana Maracineanu. “We need to talk to the professional football league and we need to be able to broaden the range of sanctions. They exist, but they must be better treated by the police, the justice system. “
The minister then took part in a conference on “serving the health of employees and the company” in the company of Pierre-Olivier Nau, president of Medef 31 (employers) and Stéphane Junique, president of Groupe VYV with whom it signed an agreement to facilitate sports activities in the economic world.
