While Cédric Hérou has just been given a suspended sentence with a € 3,000 fine for helping exiles (http://www.lemonde.fr/police-justice/article/2017/02/10/aide-aux-migrants-cedric-herrou-condamne-a-30-000-euros-d-amende-avec-sursis_5077536_1653578.html – see also here, here and here), Amnesty International publishes a report about rights violations on the French side of the French-Italian border.

The various official istitutions concerned have all refused to respond to the association’s requests for information, whose team has been able to witness several violations of the legislation concerning border controls and referrals to Italy, asylum rights and minors rights. It also highlights that the multiple prosecution of solidarity people also violates human rights.

You can download here the report, in French only “Controls at the Border – Human Rights Violations at the Border with Italy”.
