According to “Le Parisien” online, French Interior Minister Claude Gueant on Monday reckoned the decisions against “panhandling” as “useful”, and described them as “weapons” against delinquency practiced by Romanians. During a trip through central Paris, Gueant assured that the “delinquency practiced by Romanian nationals fell in October, for the first time in four years. He also said that only “a few over 300 arrests were conducted and 70 repatriation procedures”. “However, we must also work in the judicial area, and this is the role of the Romanian police that joined us,” the minister said, who met on Monday with the 33 Romanian police transferred to Paris. “They are a lot more suitable to question the people, to ask them where they come from, who they are actually (…) They allow us to reach the networks, which is of essence. And that, since Romanian delinquency in Paris is organised in Mafia-type structures which are quite cruel,” the French minister concluded.
