Guillaume Lepers sweeps away all decisions made regarding safety and goes far beyond the question of the city’s purity, which he has made his leitmotif. He insists on the happiness that is his to see elected officials and officials working together to change the bad habits that some residents take. “We have a small whatsapp group to communicate and hope as soon as we see a black dot that we report on. I also asked that they make me report all inappropriate behavior towards our agents from the side of some citizens who lack citizenship. Each negative feedback results in a letter addressed to the person concerned “.

He was released the same day after acknowledging the facts. He will be the subject of a performance next February following prior admission of guilt. It is a procedure that makes it possible to quickly assess the perpetrator of a crime that acknowledges the facts with which he is accused.
