From Viry-Châtillon, the head of government announced on April 19 a series of measures to deal with the “addiction to violence” of certain young people.

In particular, he had wanted disruptive students to be “sanctioned” in obtaining their school diplomas, making the erasure of this mention conditional on “carrying out activities of general interest and, of course, keeping oneself in line.” .
