Sixteen people were fined Sunday during a clandestine evening in the same pavilion of Joinville-Le-Pont (Val-de-Marne) where, a week earlier, a big party had gathered more than 300 people despite the confinement.
Police alert again by neighbors
Alerted by neighbors, the police intervened in the early evening to interrupt this new party in this pavilion, located in a residential area a dozen kilometers from the east of Paris.
When the police intervened, “about fifteen people” were present within the property. Verbalized for non-compliance with confinement, they said they had come “for a birthday”.
“Night club look”
Mayor Olivier Dosne (LR), present during the police intervention, said he was “stunned that the room is still welcoming the public this evening”, specifying that the interior of the pavilion looked like a “nightclub”.
“We closed the place, even if it is private property, (…) at least to block (access) for this night,” he said.
According to the councilor, most of the participants came from Drancy, city of Seine-Saint-Denis, located about fifteen kilometers from Joinville.
Last weekend, in this same pavilion, between 300 and 400 people participated in a private party. And at least one of the participants had tested positive for Covid-19.
After this event, the owner of the house and the security guard were indicted for “deliberately endangering the life of others”, “carrying out concealed work in respect of several people” and “irregular opening. of an establishment open to the public in a district in a state of health emergency “.
