(BRUSSELS) EU PRESIDENCY REPORT: France took over the rotating presidency on January 1, affording President Emmanuel Macron the chance to pose as the EU’s de facto leader in the run-up to national elections in April #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.03: The 44-year-old has never made any secret of his ambitions to be the motor for further European integration, serving over the last four years as a dynamic sidekick to the more steady German chancellor Angela Merkel in Europe’s power couple.

#AceDailyNews says according to EU Data News Hub Report: Macron takes EU reins as election looms

With Merkel now retired and the timely gift of the rotating presidency of the EU Council from January 1, Macron has announced an ambitious agenda for the 27-member bloc that could also serve his domestic campaign for re-election.

“The year 2022 must be a turning point for Europe,” he said in a New Year’s Eve national address that hailed the EU’s role during the Covid-19 crisis.

Referring to the French presidency, he vowed that “you can count on my complete commitment to ensure that this period, which comes around every 13 years, is a time of progress for you”.

The centrist, who made his Europhile views a key part of his political campaign when winning the presidency in 2017, is hoping it will again serve him in elections scheduled for April 10 and 24.

“The EU presidency gives him a welcome platform to put his European record to the forefront and differentiate himself from his rivals and bring new proposals, new ideas to the table,” said Claire Demesmay, an expert at the Marc-Bloch think-tank in Berlin.

Strutting on the international stage has also long been a popular move for any French president.

“The French like nothing more than the image or impression of France being ‘at the controls’,” said Pierre Sellal, a former French diplomat at the French mission to the European Union.

To mark the start of the six-month presidency, France illuminated historic buildings across the country including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe in the blue of the EU flag on New Year’s Eve.

Other observers have noted that the French logo for the presidency includes the letters U and E for “Union Europeene” with a grey arrow in the middle that appears to create another letter — a sideways M for Macron.

– German support? –

Each European country gets a chance at holding the rotating presidency of the Council, which gives the member state an opportunity to set the official agenda for fellow leaders in the bloc — within limits — and organise meetings of ministers.

But although the first French presidency since 2008 offers opportunities for Macron, it is also seen by observers as holding risks.

His agenda to make Europe “powerful” — in defence, technology or its own border security — risks being overshadowed in the short term by the accelerating Covid-19 health crisis.

Sebastien Maillard, director of the Jacques Delors Institute, a pro-EU think-tank based in Paris, says Macron will also face pressure to deliver after having ramped up expectations.

Macron wants to reform Schengen to better protect borders (Dec 9)

“He can’t get to the first round (of the presidential election) on April 10 without having obtained some results from the European presidency,” Maillard said. “That’s the challenge for him, but it can also be a real opportunity.”

European leaders are set to meet in Paris on March 10-11, which could be a chance for them to agree on a major reform of the bloc’s budget rules.

Much will depend on Germany’s new chancellor Olaf Scholz, whose coalition government is seen as sceptical on budget reforms, but supportive of Macron’s agenda.

France’s presidency is “an important opportunity we want to seize together to strengthen Europe and make it fit to rise up to tomorrow’s challenges,” German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock told AFP on Friday.

– Domestic concerns –

Other European leaders such as Hungary’s right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban, whom Macron labelled a “political opponent” in December, might be in no mood to bolster the French leader’s chances of re-election.

As symbolic head of the European Council, Macron will have to walk a fine line as he also launches his campaign for re-election, which is expected to be announced formally in February at the latest.

Sellal, the former French diplomat, said France’s partners would take a dim view of “attempts to instrumentalise the presidency for electoral reasons”.

Domestically, opponents have already accused Macron of electioneering and say he should have delayed France’s turn at the helm until after the elections.

“It’s a mistake. He’s doing it for his own interests, not those of France,” his rightwing rival Valerie Pecresse from the Republicans party said last month.

Eurosceptic opponents such as far-right figures Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmour will also waste no opportunity to portray the whole exercise as meaningless.

“It’s been four-and-a-half years that he’s been in power and he’s obtained nothing and done nothing in the European domain, apart from achieving a sort of submission to Germany in the name of the Franco-German couple,” Le Pen told RMC radio in mid-December.

(LONDON) NCA REPORT: Organised crime groups are turning to ever more dangerous and un-seaworthy boats in efforts to smuggle people across the Channel to the UK from France, they have warned #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.13: Recent months have seen a trend towards larger inflatables, sometimes up to 10 metres in length, being used. The NCA believes many of these large grey or black unbranded vessels have little or no commercial use, and are being purposefully manufactured for people smugglers.

#AceDailyNews NCA Report: People smugglers use ever more dangerous boats to attempt Channel crossings as NCA issue international alert

Small boat with bottom collapsed

Other boats are also being adapted or improvised using sub-standard materials in attempts to increase capacity and improve rigidity. During one attempted crossing in July this year the flimsy plastic bottom of a boat simply gave way, plunging the occupants into the water. Fortunately they were rescued by Border Force.

And several boats intercepted in the days just before a similar vessel sank in the Channel leading to the deaths of 27 people were held together using strips of gaffer tape.

On 29 November the Agency issued an alert via Interpol to worldwide law enforcement for them to share intelligence about the supply of boats and encouraging them to ask suppliers and retailers in their jurisdictions to be on the lookout.

Martin Grace, Head of Organised Immigration Crime operations for the NCA, said:

“It is clear to us that with some of the boats being used there is little or no genuine commercial use for them.

“They are likely being manufactured and sold online for the sole purpose of being used for people smuggling, and this is now something we are focusing on.”

The NCA assesses that a high percentage of attempted Channel crossings are still facilitated by organised criminal networks of varying sophistication.

The Agency continues to look at disrupting the supply of vessels to criminal groups and target those who knowingly do so.

In November the NCA worked with French police on an operation which  dismantled an organised crime group involved in supplying boats able to carry between 40 and 60 people, and then recruiting people from camps in northern France to travel in them.

18 people were arrested in the Calais, Le Havre and Paris regions of France.

Dan O’Mahoney, Home Office Clandestine Channel Threat Commander, said:

“The recent tragedy in the Channel is a devastating reminder of the dangers of Channel crossings choreographed by organised crime groups who are profiteering from these deadly and unnecessary Channel crossings. 

“We work closely with our European and international partners and police, hand-in-glove, day in, day out to arrest, investigate and prosecuting organised criminals, preventing numerous departures and saving lives.

“But this is a complicated issue and we are determined to do all we can to work with the NCA to tackle criminal gangs and prevent further loss of life.” 

Earlier this year the NCA issued an alert to the UK maritime industry to raise awareness around organised crime activity linked to small boat supply, and continues to work with partners in the EU to do similar there.

The NCA’s Martin Grace added:

“While the events of last month in which at least 27 people died were an absolute tragedy, unfortunately it was not a surprise when you consider the types of boats we have seen people being put in. Frankly, they are death traps.

“If you add that to the increasing crowding we are seeing on these vessels, and the poor weather and colder seas of winter, it all adds to a greatly increased risk.

“It demonstrates further to us that the people smugglers involved in these crossings don’t care about the wellbeing of those they put on the boats. They don’t care if they die. They just want to exploit their desperation for money.

“I would also re-iterate our appeal from earlier in the year to those involved in the maritime industry, both here in the UK and on the Continent. Please be on alert, and if you have suspicions around the purchase of the kinds of items that can be used in these crossings, please report it.”

Potentially suspicious activity might include:

·      Cash being used in large sums to make payment;

·     Unusual combination of boats and equipment in one transaction;

·     Enquiries about bulk purchase of equipment i.e. life jackets;

·     Repeat purchasing of boats and/or equipment from the same retailer;

·     Lack of concern about the condition of the boat or equipment being purchased, or an indication that it may not be for the buyers’ use;

·     Customers wanting to complete their transaction and collection as quickly as possible.

·     Online buyers travelling to collect the boat and/or avoiding providing a fixed delivery address.

National Crime Agency officers continue to work with law enforcement partners in France, Belgium and further afield to disrupt and dismantle the criminal networks involved in people smuggling.

The NCA alone has around 50 ongoing investigations linked to the top tiers of organised immigration crime, and since the start of the 2021 has been involved in more than 140 arrests.

Evgeny Brazhnikov, accused in the case of the illegal  prison of militants in the “DPR” “Izolyatsia”, is seeking asylum in France.

The prosecutor’s office does not know about the status of the asylum seeker of the accused, and the lawyer did not provide any documents about this, the newspaper notes.

It was Brazhnikov, according to the former hostages, who poured cold water on the prisoners and beat them to obtain confessions.

As UNIAN wrote, Bellingcat investigators found a trace of the Russian FSB in the organization of the illegal prison “Izolyatsia”, where, in particular, Ukrainian prisoners are kept in inhuman conditions.

On November 9, the head of the prison  Denis Kulikovsky (“Palycha”), who was directly involved in torturing the detained prisoners, was detained in Kiev .

 Isolation is an illegal prison created by the Russian occupation authorities on the territory of the cultural center of the same name in Donetsk after the city’s seizure in 2014.

According to the Office of the Prosecutor General, about 3.5 thousand people were held in the prison at different times, of which 1.6 thousand are civilians. In Isolation, prisoners are tortured and sexually abused.

On October 29, 2020, the head of Izolyatsia was informed of the suspicion in absentia.

(LONDON) NCA/BORDER FORCE REPORT: 18 people arrested with suspected links to an organised crime group involved in the supply of boats which could each carry between 40 and 60 people from France to the UK. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.26: National Crime Agency officers have been involved in an international operation which has seen the dismantling of an organised crime group involved in the smuggling of people from France to the UK in small boats.

#AceDailyNews NCA Report: International operation sees network of small boat people smugglers dismantled in France

The operation saw 18 people arrested by OCRIEST, the French border police unit targeting immigration crime with assistance of additional French border policing partners, in the Calais, Le Havre and Paris regions of France. Over 100,000 euros were also seized in cash and bank accounts.

The organised crime group were involved in the supply of boats which would each be able to carry between 40 and 60 people.

The network would then arrange departures from the shore of northern France, recruiting migrants in the various camps there. They would each be charged around six thousand euros for the journey to the UK, which some of those arrested would then seek to launder.

NCA intelligence and international network officers worked with colleagues in OCRIEST and other international partners to target and identify those who were arrested.

Those held in the operation included nationals of Iraq, Pakistan, Romania and Vietnam, and they will all now be subject to French judicial proceedings.

NCA Deputy Director Andrea Wilson said:

” We look to target and disrupt organised crime groups involved in people smuggling at every step of the route.

“Much of this criminality lies outside the UK, so we have built up our intelligence sharing effort with law enforcement partners in France and beyond.

“This includes having NCA officers based in those countries, sharing intelligence and working side by side on joint investigations.

“This approach is bringing operational results in the form of arrests and prosecutions, as we have seen with this particular case.

“Much of this work is necessarily covert, but we know it is having an impact.

“We are continuing to look at ways to disrupt the supply of vessels to people smuggling OCGs, and target those who knowingly do so.

“Earlier this year we issued an alert to the UK maritime industry to raise awareness, and we are working with partners in the EU to do similar there.”

The NCA has a team of liaison officers based in France working on investigative activity with French partners both as part of Project INVIGOR, the UK’s organised immigration crime taskforce, but also on wider threats that require Anglo-French law enforcement co-operation.

This means NCA officers on the ground in France, not just exchanging intelligence but working with the French police to collaborate on both proactive and reactive investigations, including those with a particular focus on small boats threat.

(LONDON) LATEST: At least 27 people have died trying to cross the English Channel in a small boat on Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.25: A fishing boat sounded the alarm on Wednesday afternoon after spotting several people in the sea, off the northern coast of France…..

#AceDailyNews says according to media news and the illegal migrants who drowned were 17 men, seven women – one of whom was pregnant – and three children, France’s Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said: A joint search and rescue operation by British and French authorities was launched, and eventually called off late on Wednesday.

Two people were rescued and are in a critical condition with severe hypothermia in a French hospital. One of them is from Iraq, the other is Somali, Mr Darmanin told RTL radio.

The task of performing autopsies and identifying the victims will take place over the next few days in Lille, in northern France, the city’s public prosecutor Carole Etienne confirmed.

French media is reporting that the dead are believed to be Iraqi or Iranian Kurds.

What happened to the boat?

The cause of the accident remains unknown, but when the long, inflatable boat the migrants were using was found by rescuers, it was mostly deflated.

Mr Darmanin described the boat as a dinghy that was “extremely fragile”.

He said “it was like a pool you blow up in your garden”.

It is the kind of boat often used by people smuggling networks to get migrants across the channel, and has now been sent to Lille to be examined.

French police say the boat set out from the Dunkirk area, east of Calais.

Fishermen in the area said calm weather had prompted more migrants than usual to attempt to make the crossing on Wednesday.

There are reports that about 25 boats had attempted the crossing during the day.

Five alleged traffickers linked to the incident have been arrested in France.

Two people have already appeared in court and an investigation into aggravated manslaughter has been opened by prosecutors, Mr Darmanin said.

Mr Darmanin said the boat used to cross the Channel, called a zodiac, was purchased in Germany.

Boats still arriving

Despite Wednesday’s tragedy, people have continued to attempt the dangerous 20 mile (32km) journey across the Channel. On Thursday, two more boats arrived in Dover, carrying about 40 people, the BBC’s Simon Jones says.

This is all happening a week after a large migrant camp near Dunkirk in northern France was dismantled and up to 1,500 migrants were evacuated from the site.

More than 25,000 people have made the dangerous journey from France to the UK across the Channel in small boats this year. 

That is more than any other year, and more than three times last year’s total.

Speaking to BBC News, the president and chairman of the ports of Calais and Boulogne, Jean-Marc Puissesseau, said: “Even if the sea is not looking so rough, in the middle [of the English Channel] there are always many waves. It is dangerous.”

Over the past 20 years, organised crime gangs have created an entire industry in smuggling people from Asia and Africa across Europe.

For years, people smugglers have sent people across the Channel hidden in trucks on ferries or trains. But as port security has been tightened, more attempts have been made to send people by boat.

The day after at least 27 people died trying to cross the English Channelwhen their flimsy inflatable boat capsized during the perilous voyage, the leaders of France and England vowed to crack down on migrant crossings even as they offered a fractious response to one of the deadliest disasters in recent years involving migrants trying to cross the narrow waterway separating the two countries.

French officials confirmed that children and a pregnant woman were among those who had drowned, as crews worked in the cold and wind to recover bodies and to try to identify those who died. Two people, one from Iraq and one from Somalia, were found and taken to a French hospital, where they were being treated for severe hypothermia. 

The tragedy was a stark reminder that five years after authorities dismantled a sprawling migrant camp in Calais, both countries are still struggling to handle the flow of migrants in the area.

France and Britain have long accused each other of not doing enough to curb attempts to cross the Channel. After the tragedy on Wednesday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain said greater efforts should be made to allow joint patrols along the French coast.

And President Emmanuel Macron of France said he expected the British “to cooperate fully and to abstain from using this dramatic situation for political means.”

The two leaders spoke by phone late on Wednesday and said in statements afterward that they had agreed to step up efforts to prevent migrants from making the journey across one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

Under an agreement between the two nations, Britain pays France to clamp down on crossings through surveillance and patrols.

Mr. Johnson said that he was “shocked and appalled and deeply saddened by the loss of life at sea in the Channel.” But, he added: “I also want to say that this disaster underscores how dangerous it is to cross the Channel in this way.”

Mr. Macron called for an immediate tightening of border controls and an increased crackdown with other European nations on people smugglers.

“France won’t let the Channel become a graveyard,” he said in a statement.

The drownings came only a few days after French and British authorities had reached an agreement to do more to stem the number of people taking to the sea. 

Attempts to reach Britain in small boats have increased in recent years as the authorities have cracked down on the smuggling of asylum seekers inside trucks crossing by ferry or through the Channel Tunnel.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been 47,000 attempts to cross the Channel in small boats and 7,800 migrants had been saved from shipwrecks, according to French officials. Before Wednesday, seven people had died or disappeared so far this year.

Many migrants — who are often from countries in Africa or the Middle East like Iraq and Eritrea — consider Britain an ideal destination because English is spoken, because they already have family or compatriots there, and because it can be relatively easy to find off-the-books work.

But the recent increase in attempts to cross the English Channel by boat reflects a shift in how migrants are traveling, not in how many, according to migration experts and rights groups, who say that, overall, asylum applications in Britain are down this year.

The crossings have become another element in the worsening relations between France and Britain, which have also clashed over fishing rights and trading checks after Britain’s departure from the European Union, as well as over a submarine alliance between Australia, Britain and the United States that undermined a previous French deal.Another group of migrants on the northern coast of France on Wednesday, with a dinghy to attempt the Channel crossing.Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters

On a clear day, it is possible to see the white cliffs of Dover from France. The English coast can appear tantalizingly close and for years, it has drawn migrants who have already traversed Europe and hope to reach Britain where they believe better opportunities await.

In the dark of night on Tuesday, nearly three dozen people, including men, women and children, set off on what French officials described as an “extremely fragile” inflatable boat into the strong currents and the freezing, choppy waters that divide the two nations.

It is one of the busiest shipping routes in the world and the short distance belies the dangers inherent in the crossing. The perils are made greater by the fact that many of those attempting the journey are assisted by smugglers who pack them onto tiny dinghies, which are overstuffed and unbalanced.

Gérald Darmanin, France’s interior minister, said that the authorities believed about 30 people were crowded onto a frail vessel that he compared to “a pool you blow up in your garden.”

A report in the French news media said that the migrant boat was struck by a container ship, although French authorities said the circumstances of the disaster were still under investigation.

On Thursday, Mr. Darmanin told RTL radio said that many crossings started in the same way.

“Dozens, sometimes hundreds of migrants, take a beach by storm to leave very quickly, often at high tide, to reach England in makeshift vessels,” he said. 

On Wednesday afternoon, a fishing vessel alerted maritime authorities that several people had been spotted in the waters off the coast of Calais. Ships and helicopters soon began a search and rescue operation.

Two people, one from Iraq and one from Somalia, were found and taken to a French hospital, where they were being treated for severe hypothermia. The boat itself was discovered completely deflated, officials said. It was still unclear as of Thursday morning how many people might still be missing.

And the work of identifying those who died was likely to be complicated by the fact that many migrants dispose of any identification papers before making the crossing. Mr. Darmanin said that the dead included women and children. It was still unclear on Thursday where all of the migrants in the group were from.

Mr. Darmanin said that authorities suspected the vessel had been bought in Germany by a smuggler whose car had German license plates. That smuggler, and four others, had been arrested in connection with the shipwreck, Mr. Darmanin said.

Sixty to seventy percent of the migrants attempting to reach Britain arrive from Germany or the Netherlands and go through Belgium into France to attempt a quick crossing, Mr. Darmanin added.

“Smugglers pick them up and, over a couple days, try to bring them to the beach,” he said. “It’s an international problem.”

(LONDON) Home Office Report: Tackling increasing ‘Channel Crossings’ by illegal immigrants and organised gangs with NCA and international partner agencies #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.15: We are seeing an unacceptable rise in illegal migrants departing from France: The British public have had enough of seeing people die in the Channel while ruthless criminal gangs profit from their misery: These crossings are dangerous, with overloaded boats in busy shipping lanes: They are also unnecessary because France is a safe country and people should claim asylum there rather than risk their lives at the hands of criminal smugglers.

#AceDailyNews Home Office News Team Report: This is part of a global issue. There are 80 million displaced people globally but not everyone who wants to come to the UK can do so. That’s why we prioritise those most in need through our safe and legal routes: HO News Team12 November 2021..

Stopping the criminal gangs

The UK government, police, National Crime Agency and international partners are taking action at every level to take down the people smuggling gangs who are behind this surge in crossings.

  • So far in 2021 there are 94 ongoing investigations related to small boat criminality which has led to 46 arrests and 8 people being convicted.
  • Since 2020, Immigration Enforcement have achieved 65 small boat related prosecutions in the UK, totalling over 53 years in custodial sentences.
  • In its first 12 months, the Joint Intelligence Cell was involved in nearly 300 arrests relating to small boats activity in France.

Having a maritime deterrent

It is critical that we have a maritime deterrent in the Channel.

Border Force officers are authorised, trained and stand ready to use safe and legal options to stop these deadly crossings.

All operational procedures used at sea comply with and are delivered in accordance with the law.

Working with the French

It is disappointing how many migrants have managed to cross the Channel.

The French have committed to working with us to prevent 100% of crossings, but it is vital they go further and faster to achieve this and do everything possible to stop people leaving French beaches in the first place.

Our targeted efforts with the French have prevented more than 19,000 migrant attempts so far in 2021.

Our long term plan to fix the broken system

The UK Government’s New Plan for Immigration is the only credible long-term solution to fix the broken system and seeks to make this route unviable.

First published in March 2021, it has three fair but firm objectives:

  • To increase the fairness of our system so we can protect and support those in genuine need of asylum.
  • To deter illegal entry into the UK – breaking the business model of people smugglers – and protecting the lives of those they endanger.
  • To remove more easily from the UK, those with no right to be here.

At its heart is a simple principle: access to the UK’s asylum system should be based on need, not on the ability to pay people smugglers.

Anyone who arrives in the UK illegally – where they could reasonably have claimed asylum in another safe country like France – will be considered “inadmissible” to the asylum system. We will seek to return them to a safe country.

The legislation to support this plan is already making its way through Parliament and will:

  • Be tough on the people smugglers, who could face life behind bars.
  • Deter illegal entry to the UK, with maximum four years imprisonment.
  • Introduce new powers to remove asylum seekers to have their claims processed outside the UK.
  • Establish new accommodation centres to speed up the processing of claims and removal of those with no right to remain in the UK.
  • Speed up the removal of those with no right to be in the UK by streamlining the appeals and judicial process which can be used to frustrate removal.
  • Strengthen Border Force powers to stop and redirect vessels.

These reforms will take time but the Government is determined to bring lasting change to the system so that it is fair but firm.

(FRANCE) Court Report: A man who murdered an elderly Jewish woman in her Paris apartment has been sentenced to life in prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.12: Knoll, who had narrowly escaped a round-up of Parisian Jews to Nazi death camps during World War Two, was suffering from Parkinson’s disease….

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Mireille Knoll: Killer of French Holocaust survivor jailed for life: Yacine Mihoub, 32, was convicted of stabbing 85-year-old Mireille Knoll 11 times and then setting her body alight during a botched robbery in March 2018: Her killing sparked public outcry over anti-Semitism in France.

BBC France News:– Mireille Knoll’s murder sparked an outcry over anti-Semitism in France

An accomplice, Alex Carrimbacus, 25, was jailed for 15 years for robbery, motivated by anti-Semitism.

Knoll lived next door to Mihoub’s mother, and the court heard that she had acted as a surrogate grandmother to her killer when he was a child. 

The court said the attack was fuelled by a “context of anti-Semitism” and “prejudices” about the purported wealth of Jewish people. This led Mihoub to believe Knoll had “hidden treasures” in her home as France warns of steep rise in anti-Semitism

Carrimbacus claimed he heard Mihoub shout “Allahu Akbar”, meaning “God is greatest”, while stabbing her. 

Both Mihoub and Carrimbacus blamed each other for the murder.

Knoll’s murder shocked France’s Jewish community and prompted anger over anti-Semitism in the country.

Tens of thousands of people, including government ministers, took part in a silent march in memory of Knoll. 

The trial took place against a backdrop of rising violent acts against French Jews perpetrated by radical Islamists.

Knoll’s death came just a year after Sarah Halimi, a 65-year-old Jewish woman, was thrown to her death from her Paris apartment by a man shouting “Allahu Akbar”.

Her killer, Kobili Traoré, was deemed not criminally responsible in April because his mind was affected by regular consumption of cannabis.

(LONDON) Fishing Rights Report: The UK could respond in turn if France goes ahead with threats amid a dispute over post-Brexit fishing rights, the environment secretary has said, warning that “two can play at that game” #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Boris Johnson will have a “brush by” meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in the the G20 summit in Rome this weekend, the prime minister’s spokesman said: He added that France remained a “close and strong ally” to the UK.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC News Katie Wright Fishing row has escalated after its reported that U.K. A British trawler has been seized by France and another has been fined, amid an escalating row over post-Brexit fishing rights..

France said it could stop UK boats landing in its ports if the row over licences was not resolved by Tuesday: George Eustice said the language used by French officials was “inflammatory” after authorities say the detained Cornelis Gert Jan vessel did not have a licence – a claim denied by the boat’s owner Macduff Shellfish of Scotland. But the European Union said the UK authorities withdrew the licence on 1 March.

He said he was raising the issue with the European Commission, while France’s ambassador has been summoned by the UK.

A British trawler was seized by France and another fined during checks off Le Havre on Thursday.

The captain of the scallop dredger will face a court hearing in August next year, French authorities said on Friday.

BBC political correspondent Nick Eardley said No 10 sources were “amazed and concerned” at the escalating fishing row, describing the developments in recent days as “extraordinary”.

Ministers met on Thursday to discuss the situation and are understood to be considering a “range of options” to retaliate.

France was angered by a decision from the UK and Jersey last month to deny fishing licences to dozens of French boats to access British waters, and argued that this breached the Brexit deal.

The country has warned it would block British boats from landing their catches in some French ports next week and tighten checks on UK boats and trucks if the dispute over fishing licences was not resolved by 2 November.

France has also warned it could cut electricity supplies to Jersey, a British Crown dependency, as it previously threatened in May.

Mr Eustice told the BBC only a “small number of vessels” did not qualify for licences “because they have never accessed Jersey waters before”.

He said the UK had an “ever open door” and the government would wait to see what decision is made by Tuesday, after which the UK “reserve the right to respond in a proportionate way”.

Asked about the claim by France’s Europe minister, Clément Beaune, that the only language Britain understands is “the language of force”, Mr Eustice said: “That is completely inflammatory and is the wrong way to go about things.”

He added: “For now, we’re not going to respond in the way that France has, we’re going to raise this with the commission and we’re going to raise it through diplomatic channels with the French ambassador but we’ll reserve our right to do more things if France continue to press ahead with these threats.”

The environment secretary suggested France was politicising the process of checking vessels. “There obviously is an election coming up in France, it may be that is a factor in this,” he said.

Mr Eustice said the detained trawler had been granted a licence at the beginning of the year and the government was “trying to get to the bottom” of why it had subsequently been taken off the list given to the European Union. 

He said the boat may have made some changes to its engine which meant the licence had to be renewed. 

Andrew Brown, from the boat’s owners Macduff Shellfish, said: “We don’t know where the error of interpretation of the licence lies, that will take some time to fix.

“But I would believe that under normal circumstances a misunderstanding like this could be sorted out with a phone call.”

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss asked Europe minister Wendy Morton to call France’s ambassador to the UK, Catherine Colonna, for talks later on Friday.

A calibrated response

By summoning the French ambassador, the government is expressing its significant concern over the fishing dispute in a very public way. 

This is not something allies do very often and this form of diplomatic dressing down is normally reserved for governments with whom the UK has a less amicable relationship, such as China or Iran. 

But equally, this is also a calibrated response by the Foreign Office – the ambassador is meeting only a junior minister. 

It would have been a greater escalation if Foreign Secretary Liz Truss had chosen to see the ambassador, Catherine Colonna, herself. 

And as diplomatic contretemps go, this is quite measured in comparison to a recent dispute over nuclear submarines when France actually recalled its ambassadors from Australia and the United States.

Stéphanie Yon-Courtin, a French MEP and member of the EU Fisheries Committee, accused the UK government and Channel Islands authorities of not respecting the trade agreement they signed with the EU, saying it was “up to the UK government to de-escalate the situation”.

“We don’t want escalation,” she said. “We do want to ease things. I feel really sorry for our fishermen, for the British fishermen as well… because we’ve got a very long history of friendship and I really would like to keep this as it has been.”

Under the Brexit deal, it was agreed that licences would be given to vessels that could show they had fished in each other’s waters for years, although there have been disputes about how much evidence is needed.

The UK maintains the rejected applications that sparked the row did not have enough supporting evidence to show the boats had a history of fishing in Britain’s or Jersey’s waters.

A meeting with officials from France, Jersey, the UK and European Commission on Wednesday led to 162 French boats being given licences to fish in Jersey’s waters from Friday.

The government of Jersey said it was “extremely disappointed” by the latest threats of sanctions by France. French trawlers previously protested outside the port of St Helier on the island.

Cornelis Gert Jan
The Cornelis Gert Jan, which is owned by MacDuff Shellfish of Scotland, was detained when fishing in French waters

UK boat detained by France amid fishing rights row: By Mary O’Connor of BBC News

French maritime minister Annick Girardin said the ships were cautioned during checks off Le Havre overnight.

She said the first did not comply right away and the second was not allowed to fish in French waters so was detained.

No 10 said it was watching events closely and wanted France and EU talks but was ready to respond appropriately.

Earlier, the environment secretary said he was “urgently” investigating the situation in relation to the detained vessel – which has been named as the Cornelis Gert Jan.

Responding to an Urgent Commons Question from the SNP, George Eustice said the boat was on a list provided by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) initially provided to the European Union.

He insisted the European Union did grant a licence to the vessel but it was “unclear” why, according to reports, it was subsequently withdrawn from the list.

Mr Eustice said he was awaiting further details from Marine Scotland and was expecting a response in the “next hour or so”. 

Deidre Brock, the SNP’s environment spokesperson, said it was not good enough that the environment secretary had so little information.

MacDuff Shellfish of Scotland, which owns the Cornelis, said the crew of its vessel were “in good spirits” after it was “ordered into a French port while legally fishing for scallop in French waters”.

The firm’s Andrew Brown said the crew would remain on board the vessel until its release, while the captain had left the boat to be interviewed by the French authorities and had been given legal representation.

He said Macduff’s “fishing activity [was] entirely legal” and it appeared the Cornelis, based at Shoreham, in West Sussex, had been “caught up” in the ongoing UK-France post-Brexit fishing row.Watch: British trawler Cornelis Gert Jan is held in Le Havre.

Mr Brown warned that without “a speedy resolution”, the vessel’s catch could be confiscated by the French authorities, and called on the UK government to “defend the rights of the UK fishing fleet”.

The firm will “vigorously defend” itself any claims, but its “priority concern” was for the welfare of the vessel’s crew.

Ms Girardin had said on Twitter that the trawler was found to be fishing in the Bay of Seine without the proper licences.

The minister said checks on the British vessels were standard during the scallop fishing season. 

But she added they had also been undertaken against “the backdrop of the tightening of controls in the Channel, in the context of discussions on licenses with the United Kingdom and the European Commission”.

A shot across the bows 

In naval parlance, this is called a shot across the bows.

Technically, the French checks on UK trawlers in the Channel overnight do not form part of the raft of retaliatory measures announced in the fishing row. 

But there should be no doubt they are intended as a message about what is to come.

From Tuesday, British and Channel Islands fishing boats will not be allowed to offload their catch at French ports. 

But that is the least of it. Only 5% of UK seafood exports to France arrive in this way. The rest comes by freight.

Potentially far more disruptive will be intensified controls at Calais and other entry points for UK trade by ferry and tunnel. 

The French authorities will be conducting what they call a “grève de zèle” – in other words becoming suddenly punctilious, thorough and on the look out for infractions. 

And it is not just fish imports which will be checked, but everything. 

The aim will be to create long tail-backs which will play on the news channels – reminding UK viewers of the costs of go-it-alone. 

France had warned that it would block British boats from some ports next week – as well as tightening checks on UK boats and trucks – if a post-Brexit dispute over fishing licences was not resolved by 2 November.

On Wednesday evening, it issued its ultimatum, saying it would begin to impose “targeted measures” from next Tuesday, including preventing British fishing boats from disembarking at ports and more checks on UK goods.

France has also warned it could cut electricity supplies to Jersey, a British Crown dependency, as it previously threatened in May.

Mr Eustice said threats of sanctions made by France were “disappointing and disproportionate” and appeared to breach the post-Brexit deal and international law.

He appealed to MPs to “remain calm”, saying that UK would not get into a “retaliatory tit-for-tat” but warned of a possible “appropriate and calibrated response” if France carried out its threats.George Eustice says France’s response has been “disappointing and disproportionate”

Mr Eustice rejected French claims that the process for applying for fishing licences had been slow and difficult, saying officials had granted 98% of post-Brexit licence applications from European boats to fish in UK waters.

He said more were expected to be granted following “constructive” talks with the European Commission and that he had told the French and the Commission that the UK’s “door remains ever open”.

French politician and member of President Macron’s En Marche party, Bruno Boller, told BBC Radio 4’s World at One programme that French fishermen are “losing 25% of their business because of regulation”.

He said “in the Brexit treaty we were not supposed to reach this point of tension” and disagreed with the licencing figures quoted by Mr Eustice, saying 200 licences had been granted.

Mr Boller argued French authorities “have ways to retaliate if you push too hard” and he “would not be surprised if by next week we see significant advances” in discussions.

The UK maintains the rejected applications which sparked the row did not have enough supporting evidence to show they had a history of fishing in Britain’s or Jersey’s waters.

A meeting with officials from France, Jersey, the UK and European Commission, on Wednesday led to 162 French boats being given licences to fish in Jersey’s waters from Friday.

The government of Jersey said it was “extremely disappointed” by the latest threats of sanctions by France. French trawlers previously protested outside the port of St Helier on the island.

Labour’s shadow environment secretary Luke Pollard said the tensions were a result of the government losing control of negotiations and there was real concern “the botched Brexit deal” was going to lead to more clashes.

(FRANCE) Lille Court Report: Two UK residents have been jailed for a combined nine and a half years after the NCA secured their arrests and extradition to France where they were wanted for their part in smuggling at least 250 migrants into the UK #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: Through joint work with the Crown Prosecution Service, both were extradited to France in February and September 2020: They were convicted in a French court in Lille last week [13 October 2021] where they appeared alongside nineteen other men, who all operated within an organised crime network that helped facilitate migrant crossings from France into the UK, mainly in the back of lorries.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Two UK residents have been jailed as part of people smuggling ring that saw twenty-one people convicted in France: The men, both Iranian nationals, were arrested by NCA officers two years ago; 38 year-old Hojjat Nickhoo, from Enfield, was held as he tried to leave the country via Heathrow airport in June 2019, while 33-year-old Ayoob Khaleghi was detained following a raid on Nickhoo’s address…..

CASE NOTES: Investigators estimate that the group made over four million pounds in just under a year and were charging migrants £10,000 for an adult, and £9000 for a child: The migrants would be transferred to sites in the North of France, Belgium and the Netherlands, before being transported across the Channel to their destination in the UK: Nickhoo, one of the ringleaders in the group, received a seven year sentence last week – the longest custodial term of all those convicted: Collectively, all of the defendants in court were sentenced to a total of 81 and a half years in prison: Khaleghi received a sentence of two and a half years.

NCA Deputy Director Andrea Wilson, said: “The NCA worked closely with French authorities to track these men down and ensure they went before the court in France: Tragically, we have seen that smuggling people in the back of vehicles and other methods can have lethal consequences: We continue our work to tackle the people smugglers who seek to exploit UK borders and treat migrants as a commodity to be profited from, with no regard for their safety.”

Joanne Jakymec, Chief Crown Prosecutor and Head of the CPS International Justice and Organised Crime Division, said: “The Crown Prosecution Service worked closely with the NCA to support this effective prosecution in France, by securing the extradition of the two UK-based defendants and the transfer of evidence to France.”……………The NCA investigates the highest harm criminal networks, and currently has around 50 ongoing investigations into networks or individuals in the top tier of organised immigration crime or human trafficking.

(PARIS) Migrant Crisis Report: “We need to negotiate a treaty, since Barnier did not do so when he negotiated Brexit, which binds us on migration issues,” the minister said, adding that we will champion the project when it takes over the EU’s rotating presidency in January #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.11: Barnier, who is now running for president in France, was the EU’s Brexit negotiator during the fraught talks on a deal to cover relations with the UK after it left the European Union.

#AceDailyNews says according to France24 report their are calls for creation of a migration treaty between the EU and Britain Interior Minister Darmanin also urged the British government to “uphold its promise” to finance the fight against the illegal immigrants who gather on the northern French coast seeking to cross into England he was speaking during a visit to Loon-Plage, a town on the northern French coast.

The issue of the trafficking of migrants across the Channel to southern England is a constant source of friction between Paris and London, not least on the question of the costs incurred in policing them.

A total of 15,400 people attempted to cross the Channel in the first eight months of this year, a increase of 50 percent over the figure for the whole of 2020, according to French coast guard statistics.

“The (British) government has not yet paid what it promised us,” Darmanin said. “We call on the British to keep their promise of financing since we are maintaining the border for them”.

Border security agreement

Under an agreement reached in July, Britain agreed to finance border security in France to the tune of 62.7 million euros ($73.8 million),

According to British media reports, British Home Secretary Priti Patel in September threatened to withhold the money in the light of the record numbers of migrants arriving from France.

“France has held the border for our British friends for over 20 years,” said Darmanin.

The French side has hired more gendarmes, purchased more technological equipment and thereby “succeeded in greatly reducing migratory pressure”, he added.

France is “an ally of Britain” but “not its vassal”, he said.

Over the past three months France has stopped 65 percent of attempted crossings by illegal immigrants, up from 50 percent, the interior minister said.

Darmanin added that he had received assurances from the director of the European border surveillance agency Frontex, that it will be prepared by the end of the year to monitor the coastal area, notably through aerial surveillance.

(PARIS) RSF REPORT: French “cities campaign” in support of reporter held hostage in Mali after he was reporting in city of Gao #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.09: Following the City of Paris, which began displaying a large photo of Dubois over the entrance to the 10th arrondissement town hall in July, the city of Bayeux, in Normandy, unfurled a banner in support of this French journalist earlier this week. Bayeux was chosen to start this new campaign because it was the first French city to be liberated in 1944 and is currently hosting a week of events that accompany the Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for war correspondents….

#AceDailyNews according to an RSF Report: The aim of this “cities campaign” is to show solidarity with Dubois, who is currently the only French citizen held hostage anywhere in the world. A correspondent for Libération, Le Point and Jeune Afrique, he was abducted while out reporting in the city of Gao, in northeastern Mali, on 8 April.

Eleven other cities – Marseille, Lyon, Nice, Nantes, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Rennes, Reims, Pau, Fort-de-France and La Rochelle – will follow suit tomorrow, six months to the day after Dubois was taken hostage.

“Mobilising all these cities across the country – including Marseille where part of Olivier’s family lives, and Fort-de-France in Martinique where he is from – sends a powerful message of support and solidarity with this journalist, who was taken hostage while doing his job,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We will continue to press tirelessly for Olivier to be freed so that he can go back to keeping us informed. And we take this opportunity to thank all those who are working for his release.”

In a short video released on social media on the night of 4 May, nearly a month after his abduction, Dubois was seen confirming that he had been abducted by the Support Group for Islam and Muslims (JNIM), a coalition of armed Islamist groups affiliated to Al-Qaeda. Neither his abductors nor the Malian or French authorities have provided any further news about him since then.

RSF organised an earlier show of support for Dubois in Place de la République in Paris on 8 June, the day he completed his second month in captivity. Those attending included six journalists who have been held hostage in the past – Philippe Rochot (in Lebanon in 1986), Jean-Jacques Le Garrec (Philippines in 2000), Georges Malbrunot (Iraq in 2004),  Florence Aubenas (Iraq in 2005), Roméo Langlois (Colombia in 2012) and Edouard Elias (Syria in 2013 and 2014).

On 6 August, Dubois’ 47th birthday, RSF and the news media he works for posted a video message of support on social media. 

Mali is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index.

(PARIS) #Coronavirus Report: Eight armed, uniformed French police boarded a Eurostar train on Thursday afternoon, after it made an emergency stop in Lille, to forcibly remove a passenger who was accused of “not wearing the right type of mask.” #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.09: The incident occurred on a Eurostar service that was traveling from Paris Gare du Nord to St. Pancras on Thursday afternoon but was halted in Lille after a train manager reportedly got into an aggressive argument with a man over his face mask, according to passengers.

#AceDailyNews says according to a RT News report: Armed police drag passenger off Eurostar train after staff member accused him of wearing the ‘wrong type of mask’ and it turned into an aggressive argument ….

Armed police drag passenger off Eurostar train after staff member accused him of wearing the ‘wrong type of mask’
RT NEWS:

Following the confrontation, the manager stated that they would be informing the police at Lille for his failure to follow Covid regulations, with the train making an emergency, unscheduled stop at the station where eight officers forcibly removed the passenger. As he left the train, the passenger, thought to be in his 40s, claimed he had been accused of “not wearing the right type of mask” and would now “be left alone in France,”calling it “very cruel treatment.”

Train manager told the police to arrest the poor guy and when asked by the press why they arrested him they said “Je ne sais pas”https://t.co/w7wHOqbceu— Bones Terwilliger 🟨 🟥 (@DrStedx) October 8, 2021

A spokesperson for Eurostar defended the response to the situation, claiming that “the passenger became aggressive and intimidating toward the on-board team” after they reminded him of their rule on mask wearing and, as a result, he “was asked to leave the train at Lille station.”In accordance with the company’s “normal procedure” police officers were called “to attend and assist.”

French police confirmed the man had been arrested over the incident on the train but provided no further update on the situation.

Eurostar states on its website that all passengers must wear a face covering on its trains, even if they have been fully vaccinated, with those who fail to comply potentially being refused travel. The company’s guidelines don’t state what type of mask is required, only that it must cover the mouth and nose of passengers.

PARIS, Oct 5 (Reuters) – A representative of France’s Catholic’s bishops on Tuesday asked victims of sexual abuse by clergy for their forgiveness, after a report was published on the scale of abuse in the French church going back decades.

The French Catholic Church has had an estimated 3,000 paedophiles in its ranks over the past 70 years, the head of an independent commission investigating the sex abuse scandal has revealed. 

The Roman Catholic Church has been rocked by sexual abuse scandals around the world, often involving children, over the past 20 years.

The French commission is due to publish its findings on Tuesday, marking the culmination of two-and-a-half years of work, probing allegations of abuse going back to the 1950s.

“We have estimated the number [of paedophiles] as standing at 3,000, out of 115,000 priests and religious officials, going back to the 1950s,” commission head Jean-Marc Sauve told the Journal du Dimanche paper.

A spokesperson representing the French Catholic Bishops’ Conference declined to comment on Mr Sauve’s remarks.

A Vatican spokesperson said it would wait for the full report to be published before deciding on whether to comment.

In June, Pope Francis said the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse crisis was a worldwide “catastrophe”.

The French Catholic Church posted a prayer on its official Twitter account on Sunday, on behalf of victims, and added it would also hold a prayer on October 5 – the day of the publication of the report.

“Dear Lord – we entrust to you all those who have been victims of violence and sexual attacks in the church. We pray that we will always be able to count on your support and help during these ordeals,” it wrote on its Twitter account.

Steps to wipe out abuse

Since his election in 2013, Francis has taken a series of steps aimed at wiping out sexual abuse of minors by clerics.

In 2019, the Pope issued a landmark decree making bishops directly accountable for sexual abuse or covering it up, requiring clerics to report any cases to church superiors and allowing anyone to complain directly to the Vatican if needed.

This year, he issued the most extensive revision to Catholic Church law in four decades, insisting that bishops take action against clerics who abuse minors and vulnerable adults. Critics have said he has not done enough.

The church, which has seen dwindling numbers of faithful in France in recent years, said in March it would propose financial compensation to those who were victims of abuse.

Last month, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Cologne decided to take a “spiritual time-out” from his duties after committing grave errors in a crisis over clerical sexual abuse.

A report published last year in Britain said the Catholic Church received more than 900 complaints involving over 3,000 instances of child sex abuse in England and Wales between 1970 and 2015, and that there had been more than 100 reported allegations a year since 2016.

(PARIS) Court of Cessation Report: France’s top court on Tuesday overturned a decision by a lower court to dismiss charges brought against cement giant Lafarge for complicity in crimes against humanity in Syria’s civil war #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.10: The ruling by the Court of Cassation marks a major setback for Lafarge, which is accused of paying nearly 13 millions euros ($15.3 million) to jihadist groups including the Islamic State (IS) to keep its cement factory in northern Syria running through the early years of the country’s war.

#AceDailyNews report on cement corporation Lafarge paid $15,300,000 to jihad groups to keep Syria factory running and loses ruling in Syria ‘crimes against humanity’ case,” by Eleonore Dermy and Clare Byrne, AFP, September 7, 2021:

Lafarge’s lawyer refused AFP’s request for comment.

Lafarge, which merged in 2015 with Swiss group Holcim, has acknowledged that its Syrian subsidiary paid middlemen to negotiate with armed groups to allow the movement of staff and goods inside the war zone.

But it denies any responsibility for the money winding up in the hands of terrorist groups and has fought to have the case dropped.

The Paris Court of Appeal had in 2019 dismissed the crimes against humanity charge, saying it accepted that the payments were not aimed at abetting IS’s gruesome agenda of executions and torture.

It however ruled that the company be prosecuted on three other charges — financing terrorism, violating an EU embargo and endangering the lives of others.

Eleven former employees of Lafarge Cement Syria (LCS) challenged the decision at the Court of Cassation, with the backing of NGOs.

Quashing the lower court’s finding on complicity, France’s highest court of appeal ruled Tuesday that “one can be complicit in crimes against humanity even if one doesn’t have the intention of being associated with the crimes committed.”

“Knowingly paying several million dollars to an organisation whose sole purpose was exclusively criminal suffices to constitute complicity, regardless of whether the party concerned was acting to pursue a commercial activity,” it added.

The judges added that “numerous acts of complicity” would go unpunished if courts adopted a more lenient interpretation….

(PARIS) Court Report: An historic trial has started in France over the 2015 Paris attacks which left 130 people dead #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.08: Over the next nine months, there will be over 140 days of hearings involving about 330 lawyers and 1,800 survivors and relatives of victims. About 300 witnesses will be heard, including François Hollande, French president at the time of the attacks.

#AceDailyNews says that Paris Attacks 2015 Historic Trial of 20 suspects opens in France: The only surviving attacker, Salah Abdeslam, is in court with 13 other defendants at a purpose-built facility in Paris: In a trial that is being described as the biggest in France’s modern history.

The shooting and bombing assault by #IslamistState (IS) group extremists was the worst post-World War Two atrocity in France:

Ahead of the trial, Mr Hollande told French media that this was an important moment for the victims of the attacks, which he described as an “act of war” at the time.

IS admitted carrying out the attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, a major stadium, restaurants and bars on 13 November 2015.

Philippe Duperron, who lost his son Thomas in the Bataclan attack, said there were mixed feelings about the trial, not least impatience and anxiety.

“It will be the occasion for all the victims to bear witness, so it will be a very painful moment, and bring back the pain again,” he said.

One survivor, Jérôme Barthélemy, said he wanted to hear how other victims had been coping since the attacks but didn’t expect the accused to speak.

Of the 20 suspects on trial, six are being tried in absentia. They are facing charges of murder, complicity and terrorist conspiracy.

Most of the accused, including Abdeslam, could be sentenced to life in jail if convicted.

Getty ImagesThe courtroom has been specially constructed for the trial, said to be France’s biggest ever

Abdeslam, 31, is accused of providing logistical support to the assailants. Abdeslam fled the scene of the carnage after abandoning his suicide belt, which investigators later found to be defective.

Europe’s most-wanted man at the time, he was captured four months later in the Belgium capital, Brussels, after a shootout with police.

Abdeslam has since refused to co-operate with French investigators. He remained largely silent throughout a separate trial in Belgium in 2018. There is much speculation about whether he will speak during this trial.

On Wednesday morning he and the other suspects arrived at court in police vehicles under heavy security. Reporters in court said they were seated together in the witness box, wearing face masks, before the trial opened.Inside the Bataclan: Survivors’ stories

The area around the court was blocked off and armed police with dogs were on patrol ahead of the proceedings.

Those attending the trial will need to pass through several checkpoints before being allowed into the specially built courtroom, which can seat hundreds.

The trial will be recorded for the archives, but will not be broadcast live. Survivors and relatives of victims, know as civil plaintiffs in France, will be able to follow along via streaming radio if they cannot attend.

The first days of the trial are expected to be largely procedural until victims are called to give testimony at the end of September. 

Who are the suspects on trial?

Abdeslam is the only surviving member of the group suspected of carrying out the attacks. He has been in jail since he was arrested in Belgium in 2016. 

The 13 other defendants appearing in court are accused of a range of crimes, including financing and planning the attacks.

Belgian/French policeAbdeslam was arrested in a dramatic raid not far from his home in Brussels in March 2016

Among them is Mohamed Abrini, who is accused of financing and supplying weapons to the attackers. The 36-year-old is due to stand trial over the 2016 Brussels bombings next year.

Other suspects include Mohammed Amri, 33, and Hamza Attouh, 27, who were arrested in Belgium and admitted picking up Abdeslam in France and driving him back to Brussels immediately after the attacks.

Six more are accused of helping organise the attacks and will be tried in absentia. Several are thought to be dead.

(FRANCE) JUST IN: #Wildfire Report: Thousands of people, including tourists in campsites, have been moved to safety as firefighters tackle a wildfire close to the French Riviera #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.17: Many were given only minutes to leave as hundreds of firefighters were deployed in the Var region to the west of Saint-Tropez.

#AceDailyNews says thousands are being evacuated as blaze rages near Riviera according to Reuters local officials say more than 900 firefighters have been mobilised to tackle the wildfire in southern France BBC News says that fire officials say the blaze broke out on Monday and has consumed more than 5,000 hectares (12,350 acres).

Nineteen people suffered smoke inhalation and three have been injured.

The fire ignited during an intense heatwave, with forecasters expecting temperatures of up to 35C on Tuesday.

Southern France is the latest area in Europe to be ravaged by wildfires this summer as temperatures soar to record levels around the Mediterranean.

Scientists say heatwaves are becoming more likely and more extreme because of climate change driven by human-induced carbon emissions.

Greece, Turkey, Spain and Portugal are among the countries that have been grappling with wildfires that have claimed lives and destroyed homes.

The blaze in southern France started near the village of Gonfaron, about 50km (30 miles) west of of Saint-Tropez.

By Tuesday morning, it had swept across more than 5,000 hectares of forest and scrubland, the local fire department said.

Firefighting aircraft dumped water to help douse the flames. Var’s local government said 900 firefighters and 120 police had been deployed.

Most of the evacuations took place around the villages of Le Mole and Grimaud. 

Seven campsites were cleared of tourists, the local prefect told BFMTV, and some were destroyed by the fire as the flames – fanned by strong winds – spread rapidly. 

Tourists and residents in those areas have been sheltering in town halls, collages and gyms. Holidaymakers told French media they were evacuated from hotels at short notice. 

France’s Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said he would travel to the scene of the fire on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, in southern Portugal, hundreds of firefighters were struggling to control a blaze that prompted the evacuation of around 60 people in the Algarve region.

The fires comes a week a major United Nations report warned of more extreme weather events because of global warming. Elsewhere in Europe, flash floods have hit both Austria and northern Italy.

Austrian emergency services rescued dozens of people trapped in cars and buildings after a storm triggered flash floods and mudslides in the Pongau and Pinzgau areas near Salzburg. A bus was destroyed by the flooding.Österreichische WasserrettungOnly

Only a few people were on the bus when it was caught up in flooding at Dienten: Similar rescue operations were necessary in parts of northern Italy, where flood water swept away cars and uprooted trees.

Some of the worst flooding was in the village of Sonico in Lombardy where the river Oglio burst its banks. In South Tyrol, near the border with Austria, dozens of people had to be helped to safety while others were told to stay in their homes.You may also be interested in: ‘I learned to fight fires because I had to’
