The pattern is “the refusal of the interested party to communicate the decryption key of his computers and mobile phones”, said the prosecutor.

Revaluation of the salary of home helpers: “It was the forgotten ones of Ségur” of health, justifies the LREM deputy of Loiret



The amendment to the Social Security financing bill (PLFSS) tabled by the Minister for Autonomy, Brigitte Bourguignon, to obtain a salary increase for home helpers, is debated from Tuesday, October 20 in the Assembly national. “They were the forgotten people of Ségur” health, justifies on franceinfo Caroline Janvier, LREM deputy of Loiret.

franceinfo: Is it a victory?

Caroline Janvier: Yes of course. It was in a way the forgotten of Ségur even though we know the essential role played by home helpers with people with loss of autonomy. It was important for us that as of this PLFSS they have an increase in their salary, in the same way as in nursing homes and hospitals, the effort during the health crisis was recognized for caregivers.

Why is it so important to help the home help industry?

Because sometimes it’s the only contact people have at home. These are the people who come to give the showers, prepare the meal, do the shopping for the elderly. In the construction of the fifth branch, which we are going to continue with a law of old age and autonomy, the home help sector is at the heart of what we want to do.

Home helpers are turning more and more to retirement homes or hospitals where they can benefit from wage assistance. What do you think ?

There was already a difficulty in terms of attractiveness for these professions which are little recognized and little valued. The fact of upgrading nursing homes only increases the attractiveness of nursing homes compared to the home and this is a real risk. This is why we wanted this PLFSS to increase the remuneration of home helpers, the 200 million euros that are put on the table by the government will allow from April to have an increase salary for home helpers. It is an effort which is not sufficient and which will have to be continued; we will have the opportunity to debate it when the old age law is adopted.

This increase will be 15%, a hundred euros, it is less than the staff of hospitals and retirement homes. Why ?

We cannot yet be as precise on the exact amount of the increase because the departments will have to abound, we hope for the government to reach 200 million, since it is a competence of the departments. There will be a certain number of negotiations with the social partners and the departments to have an upgrading that is satisfactory. If the departments want to keep this competence, they will have to participate financially in these upgrades. Home helpers are between 100,000 and 200,000 in France.

Decapitated teacher: in Montpellier, a charter of secularism was put in place last month


Michaël Delafosse, mayor of Montpellier, June 24, 2020 (PASCAL GUYOT / AFP)

Three days after the assassination of Samuel Paty, a teacher in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, the PS mayor of Montpellier Michaël Delafosse, explained on franceinfo that he had put in place in September a charter of secularism for the associations of the metropolis. “Everyone will have to sign it because it is public money. I lay down the rule and I make it respect”, he added. Michaël Delafosse will cut subsidies to associations that do not respect this charter.

“What I wanted with my municipal team is that any association that receives public money, which is made available to premises to promote community life, undertakes to respect the principle of secularism”, explained the mayor of Montpellier and president of Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole. “If I notice that an association prohibits women, because they are women, from entering premises made available to the municipality, I will intervene. The subsidies will be cut immediately and the premises will be sealed. Similarly, if a room made available to an association becomes a place of prayer or proselytism “, he said.

The goal for Michaël Delafosse is to remind associations of the 1905 law on secularism, to avoid community abuses: “In Montpellier as elsewhere, there are pressures of a community order which are forces of withdrawal. There cannot be a communitarian project. We must be firm each time it occurs.”

For the mayor of Montpellier, the assassination of the history-geography professor last Friday must provoke real reactions at the local level, as at the level of the government: “There must be a before and an after. Our society must re-mobilize around our principles, our values ​​and our rules. When we compromise on our rules, we do not get away with it. We need clarity. “

Expulsions of radicalized foreigners: a complex procedure



231 foreigners among the 8,000 registered in the radicalized files will be expelled. They are suspected of wanting to take part in terrorist activities. 180 of these people are imprisoned and will be deported at the end of their sentence according to Gérald Darmanin. 51 are said to be in the process of being arrested. But in order to be able to expel them, their country of origin must agree to receive them. It is partly for this reason that the Minister of the Interior was in Morocco last week.

The 231 foreigners listed are nationals of at least four countries: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Russia. Even in an irregular situation, a foreigner cannot be deported to a country where he could be ill-treated. “France is a signatory to a number of treaties and in particular to the European Convention on Human Rights, which does not allow people to return to a country where they risk their life or safety. But we still have to justify of this impossibility “, explains Me Patrick Berdugo, lawyer at the Paris bar. Each year in France, an average of 30,000 people are subject to expulsion proceedings.
