The Senate has referred the Meurice affair to Arcom

Léa Salamé and Nicolas Demorand probably did not expect this answer. While they questioned Gérard Larcher, the president of the Senate, on Wednesday morning about the results of Sunday's march against anti-Semitism, the latter returned to the Guillaume Meurice affair. In his sights, the broadcast of his sketch, last October 29, comparing the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to a “Nazi without a foreskin”.

“Let me first say a word to you about the comments of a comedian on your channel,” he said before continuing: “This is not a debate on freedom of expression and it There is no question for me of calling into question the editorial staff of France Inter and the public service. I think, like the director of France Inter, that the limit of respect and dignity has been crossed. »

The President of the Senate and Senator LR des Yvelines also announced that Laurent Lafon, the president of the culture and education committee of the Upper House, had contacted Arcom about the sketch by Guillaume Meurice.

“In a particularly tense international and national context, the comments made by this columnist may have legitimately shocked some of our fellow citizens. In any case, they appear to be quite far from the service missions assigned to Radio France, in particular those relating to respect for the human person, their dignity as well as the promotion of the values ​​of a culture and good citizenship. shared provisions provided for in articles 5 and 5-1 of its specifications and specifications", we can read in the letter addressed to the president of Arcom, Roch-Olivier Maistre and dated October 31, obtained by Le Figaro.

“In view of the reports received on this subject, I wanted to know the follow-up that the Authority intended to give to this sequence,” concludes Laurent Lafon. The regulator has started to investigate the case. Informal exchanges reportedly took place with the president of Radio France, Sibyle Veil, as well as with the Maison Ronde journalists' union. On France Inter, Gérard Larcher indicated that Arcom “should rule in the coming days” on the case.
