Raquel Garrido and Adrien Quatennens sanctioned

Recently, at the National Assembly, the deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis Raquel Garrido was also sanctioned by her group. Without being excluded, it can no longer be “speaker on behalf of the group in parliamentary proceedings for a period of four months”.

He was accused of having harmed “for the good collective functioning of the parliamentary group” par “the dissemination of false information in the press” or “the questioning and ad hominem denigration of several members of the group”. Members of the group added that he was also accused of having “humiliated employees” to the Assembly.

Raquel Garrido claims to have been sanctioned for having expressed her disagreement on “the way in which La France insoumise has been run for a year”.

Another deputy, Adrien Quatennens, close to Jean-Luc Melenchon, sentenced in December 2022 to four months in prison for violence against his ex-partner, had also been, in parallel with this court decision, suspended from the group to the Assembly for four months.
