French MPs get death threats over support for Covid-19 vaccine pass

BoomRadioNG | January 4, 2022
Several French MPs say they have received death threats as they debate a Covid-19 pass that would bar the unvaccinated from much of public life.
The government is seeking to pass a law that would require people to show proof of vaccination to access public venues and transport with some exceptions.
The legislation is expected to be approved in a vote this week but has angered vaccine opponents.
At least 91% of the adult population have been fully jabbed, according to the French government.
On Sunday Agnès Firmin Le Bodo of the center-right Agir party tweeted an email she received containing graphic threats to kill her over her support for the vaccination pass.

“Our democracy is in danger,” wrote Ms Firmin Le Bodo, who is also a pharmacist and vaccinates people against Covid.
In an interview with BFM TV, she said she had reported the threats to the police and would not be deterred from supporting the vaccine pass.
Another MP, Naïma Moutchou of the Horizons party, shared a similar tweet which included a screenshot of an emailed threat.
In parliament on Monday, Health Minister Olivier Véran condemned the death threats and the “selfishness” of vaccine opponents.
Last week Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said police would strengthen protections for elected officials ahead of the vote on vaccine passes.
Barbara Bessot Ballot of the ruling En Marche! party said MPs had received messages threatening to kill them for “attacking our freedom”.
“Those death threats are unacceptable,” she wrote on Twitter.
