“In no case is there a white card, each person, each case, each file is scrutinized. The security of these arrivals is maximum since the first day, he assured at the end of the Council of Ministers. Our intelligence services investigate, question and, if necessary, detain without the slightest complacency all the persons identified as potential risks “.
This reaction from the government spokesperson comes after five Afghans were placed under surveillance on Saturday. EEvacuated from Kabul, they were the subject of an individual measure of administrative control and surveillance (Micas), provided for in the framework of anti-terrorism laws, upon their arrival in France. One of them was taken into custody.
