Public insults: proceedings against Christian Troadec are time-barred – Carhaix



Successful gamble for Christian Troadec, mayor of Carhaix and vice-president of the regional council. This Thursday, September 22, the Rennes Court of Appeal receives the exception of nullity raised by the elected official!

For the record, Christian Troadec appeared, on September 14, before the Rennes Court of Appeal, to answer for the offense of public insults against a volunteer from the Vieilles Charrues.

On July 16, 2021, drunk, the mayor of Carhaix had refused to present his health pass to enter the site of the festival which was taking place, subject to drastic conditions established in consultation with the prefecture. As the tone began to rise, a volunteer manager approached to calm things down. He was picked off by a “You, the collaborator, in 40, you would have been behind the gun! “.

Three months and 11 days

For these insults, the elected official had been sentenced, in March 2022, to a fine of €1,500 by the Brest court and had appealed. During his new appearance, the merits of the case were not discussed. Me Gourvès, his lawyer, skillfully raised an exception of nullity, considering the public action prescribed. In matters of public insults, the limitation period is three months. In the case in question, no judicial act was recorded between October 6, 2021 and January 17, 2022, i.e. three months and 11 days…

After deliberation, the Rennes Court of Appeal therefore notes the prescription. Public action is extinguished. The volunteer’s complaint becomes inadmissible.
