(Lyon) The man accused of slapping French President Emmanuel Macron during a trip to the Dane El Hermitage on Tuesday will be produced immediately on Thursday, the Valenzuela prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday evening.
Damien Thorrell, 28, “will be presented tomorrow morning (Editor’s Note: Thursday) with an explanation that he must appear before the public prosecutor immediately in the afternoon,” state attorney Alex Berry said in a statement.
His comrade, who was arrested with him, said “Arthur C. will be summoned to court at the end of the second half of 2022 to respond to offenses related to illegal possession of firearms.”
Their detention, which was determined to be “violence without the incapacity of a person holding public power”, was extended to “continue checks.”
Two residents of Saint-Vallier, north of Valencia, were arrested shortly after the incident. They are “unknown to the judiciary and intelligence services.” The magistrate recalled that they were members of their communion associations “in relation to the martial arts, the medieval and the manga universe”.

During his interrogation, Damien Thorrell admitted that “a couple, without children, without a career”, “struck a blow to the head of state and had words condemning the policy.”
According to him, the “movement in yellow underwear” was an escape movement from the parties, and he shared “traditional political beliefs about the right or the extreme right” without expressing any party or activity. Prosecutor Mee Berrin further explained.
Witnesses’ inquiries and Damien Doral’s comrade did not shed much light on the motives of the young man, and the precedent against him is not currently maintained.
“Recent verifications and investigations are ongoing,” the attorney stressed.
My fight Confiscated from his friend
Arthur C., who was arrested along with his friend after filming an attack on a single, childless, interim, head of state, was “able to explain his presence on the scene without participating in the aggression” by the Republican president.
In his home, “Old books on the art of war and My fight is oneDuring a search, a yellow hammer and sickle, a red flag and a flag of the Russian Revolution were found.
This slap provoked the anger of the entire political class. Emmanuel Macron, for his part, reconsidered the gesture, denouncing the “isolated facts” made by “ultraviolet persons.”
