Lahore, 11th June: The man who slapped French President Emmanuel Macron has been sentenced to life in prison.
A French court has sentenced a man to four months in prison and 14 months of suspended imprisonment for slapping President Emmanuel Macron.
He was also fired from his government job in France, disqualified from holding public office for five years and banned from carrying any weapon for five years.
The prosecution had demanded a sentence of 18 months in prison for Damien Tarrell, 28. The attorney general called Tarrell’s attack on the president ‘absolutely unacceptable’ and called the act a deliberate act of violence.
After hearing the sentence, he did not comment or express any concern. Earlier, police and security agencies arrested two people, one of whom was a slapper and the other a suspect, who was making the video.
Police searched the homes of the two men after the incident and found weapons in the house of the 28-year-old suspect who made the video on the life of former German ruler Adolf Hitler in which anti-semitic views were expressed.
According to the report, the weapons recovered included a sword, dagger and a rifle, which he also had a license for.
The slapper is said to belong to a right-wing nationalist party.
Two days ago, French President Emmanuel Macron was on a visit to the Drome Region in the southeastern part of the country, where he was slapped by a man as he approached the public to shake hands with them.
