A man presents Emmanuel Macron’s health pass and ends up in police custody – RT en français

At the entrance of a hospital in the 9th arrondissement of Marseille, a 19-year-old man without a health pass showed that of the Head of State, which had been posted on the internet. Security let him pass before notifying the police.

On October 5, a young man of 19 presented at the entrance of the Sainte-Marguerite hospital in Marseille the QR code of Emmanuel Macron’s sanitary pass, which had been broadcast on social networks.

The security guards realized this and let the individual pass before notifying the police. “They did well, they didn’t want to refuse him and let him go like that. They judged that this usurpation was too serious ”, declared the Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille quoted by France 3.

The offender was then arrested and taken into police custody. He was finally the subject of a 4th class fine for “presentation of a health document belonging to a third party during an access control to a place as part of the fight against the spread of the epidemic “.

“He explained that he had an appointment and had to participate in a working group. Since he did not have a health pass, he decided to present that of Emmanuel Macron, who had leaked on the internet a few weeks ago, ”detailed a source close to the investigation cited by Actu 17. This same source affirms that the man would have declared to have committed this act “for fun”.

Emmanuel Macron’s QR code was available online on September 21, just like that of Jean Castex 48 hours earlier. Concerning the President of the Republic – whose QR code has since been deactivated – the Elysee Palace referred to “the negligence or malice of health professionals”. The caregivers at the origin of this leak were identified by the Health Insurance, which seized the National Council of the Order of Physicians.
