Boys jailed for lingering in stairwell

Boys jailed for lingering in stairwell

Jon Henley in Paris and Sarah Michel
Tuesday July 29, 2003

The Guardian


The first convictions under a draconian new French law that makes hanging around in the hallway of an apartment block a crime punishable by prison yesterday drew an angry response from social workers and human rights groups.

"This is an utterly absurd law that holds out every prospect of mounting repression for a whole section of French society," said Michel Tubiana of the Human Rights League.

Two teenagers from the industrial town of Roubaix in northern France were each sentenced to a month in jail on Friday for "illicit occupation of the communal areas of a collective building".

At the youths' trial the prosecutor demanded a suspended sentence and community service, but the magistrate said he wanted "to set an example".

The measure came into effect this spring as part of a law and order bill pushed through parliament by the hardline interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy.

The leftwing opposition says the law creates a country "where poverty and the expression of revolt become crimes" and will only serve to marginalise those most in need of help.

wow, and most here think that that could only happen in America.

there are a lot of silly laws in the States (in one city it is against the law to boil animal fat and lime together) but they're not enforced.

Well thats good. Its about time they did something about these building lottering punks. I mean have you ever tried to get out of your building when a couple people are having a friendly conversation?! The nerve of some people, they just don't consider others. Its a shame its only a month in prision...they should be flogged, or forced to do hard labour...or sent to an american prison for a month!

Why would the French send someone to an American prison?

I think they'd at least pick Quebec.

yes it does, but i'm sure there was probably a numbnut who burned himself or did something stupid in order for this law to actually be considered. I believe the law was in the 1800's
