This is a new twist that will have more impact on the form than on the merits of the case. The substance, precisely, is beginning to be known to all : on the 11th of February last, Piotr Pavlenski, a Russian activist, post on social networks and videos to the intimate nature and sexual of Benjamin Griveaux, then candidate for mayor of Paris. The images have been stolen in Alexandra, of Taddeo, the current girlfriend of Piotr Pavlenski. The young woman, putting in the review it also subsequentlyconfirmed that it was indeed Benjamin Griveaux on the images. On 14 February, the politician withdrew from the race for municipal and complaint. The next day, February 15, Piotr Pavlenski is stopped in the streets of Paris. His arrest was filmed and immortalized. On the images, we can see Piotr Pavlenski flat stomach and handcuffed.

Confessions fast

On Tuesday 30 June, a policeman was placed in custody. He is believed to have informed the photographer on the date and place of the arrest. After the broadcast by Paris Match photos and video, the parquet de Paris opened a preliminary inquiry on February 28, for “violation of professional secrecy”, “concealment of breach of professional secrecy” and “unauthorized dissemination of images of a person hindered”. According to the law of 1881 on the freedom of the press, “the dissemination of the image of an identified or identifiable person questioned during a criminal procedure, but that has not been the subject of a judgment of conviction, and making it appear that this person is wearing handcuffs or shackles […] is punishable by 15 000 euros fine.
According to Le Parisien, once identified, the offending police officer is quickly passed to the confessions. Very little information about it so far have been filtered, other than that he is of the Brigade anti-crime of the Sixteenth arrondissement of paris. According to The Express, the IGPN would be made to the home to conduct a search.
