NEWS – The false denunciation of a fictitious perpetrator of an offense is severely punished. The criminal risk is indeed higher than the consequences of the offense initially noted.

It may be tempting to designate a parent, relative or even a third person whose driving license circulates on social networks as the author of a report. In the event of a deliberately false designation, the informer is liable to the penalties of a repressed slanderous denunciation of 5 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros, but also to penalties repressing forgery and the use of forgery, i.e. 3 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros.

In addition, the fact of giving inaccurate or erroneous information for the author of a request for exemption or a complaint is punished by a fine of up to 1,500 euros.

Of course, this speed camera fraud does not stop there, since the author of the false denunciation will also have to answer before the judge for the traffic offenses he has committed.
