• Policewoman claims ministry pressured her on Nice attack


    PARIS: A fresh crisis hit France’s government on July 24 when policewoman Sandra Bertin claimed the interior minister pressured her to alter a report into security at the Nice fireworks display where 84 were killed when a man rammed a lorry into the crowd. The minister, Bernard Cazeneuve—whose account of police deployments on the night of July 14 celebrations has already faced questions—has been the lightning rod for criticism over alleged security failures. Bertin, who is in charge of Nice’s system of security cameras, told the Journal du Dimanche newspaper she had been “harassed for an hour” by Cazeneuve on the phone after he sent a commissioner to see her the day after the attack.
