TESTIMONY “They counted to three, then they went” : according to a witness, “about sixty” of individuals without tickets would have violently entered the Stade de France on Saturday night to attend the rapper’s concert, under the helpless gaze of police and stadium agents.

Obviously, the crisis meetings, reports and recommendations that followed the serious incidents at the Stade de France during the Champions League final were not enough. This Saturday evening, September 3, as famed rapper Booba gathered 80,000 fans for a historic concert that marked the pinnacle of his career, several dozen people once again managed to break through security around the stadium and then attend the concert. without having a ticket, generating a scene of panic among the people waiting in line. Several spectators, with valid tickets, then waited three quarters of an hour in front of a screened entrance, before finally being able to reach their seats when the concert had already begun.

Le Figaro was able to collect the testimony of one of the spectators who witnessed this new scene of violence at the entrance to the stadium. As he queued in front of Gate U, he saw “about sixty young people dressed in black, who did not have a ticket to attend the concert“. One of the subjects would then tell a countdown, before giving the signal to attack the security gates where the stadium agents checked the tickets:”They counted to three, then loaded. There were one or two cops and maybe six officers, but they were caught off guard and there were far too many people. In the line there was a movement of panic, everyone moved away, it was very violent. People were shocked, I saw many girls crying! And the police couldn’t do anything: behind him there was an officer on horseback but his mount got scared and reared up on its hind legs. When about fifteen policemen arrived as reinforcements, it was too late, the sixty people had already crossed the gates and climbed the stairs leading to the stands.

Jessie specifies that the events took place in an area in which the spectators had been the subject of a first screening, but it was only a search; before entering the gates, spectators did not have to present a ticket. It is therefore not surprising that people without tickets were able to enter the gates and, from there, violently cross the gates. As for the police, they were numerous in this area, near the research points, but present in fewer numbers near the gates.

By the time the police finally arrived, it was too late Jessie continues, but they still closed the gates and asked us to take a step back. Then we had to wait three quarters of an hour before finally being able to enter, and when I sat in my seat, the introduction to the concert had already passed, we entered very late.Above all, he trusts that he recognized some of the people who made their way in front of his eyes, and who then attended the concert, comfortably seated in the rows of the stadium and for some even in the golden square.

United by Le Figarothe Paris Police Headquarters speaks for its part only of a “twenty individuals“, most of which would be taken out of the stadium later:”the security guards failed to block all the protagonists. The police forces present within the system set up around and on the access roads of the spectators were called to reinforce the stewards. […] Of the twenty people who returned without a title, 18 were identified by videographers at the Stade de France and escorted by private security outside the sports hall.The PP confirms, however, that none of the spectators without a ticket who violently forced access were arrested, and that the “other attemptsof clandestine intrusion into the Stade de Francecontent“.

On the other hand, 13 street vendors were arrested outside the area and placed in police custody, as well as a man who committed violence during an altercation outside the stadium.
