THE DEBATE

Latest update : 2013-10-18

Has France's interior minister gone too far?

France’s Manuel Valls may be three times more popular than his own president but now left-wing youth are calling for the interior minister’s head after the deportation of a Roma schoolgirl: the 15-year-old was whisked away under the eyes of her classmates on a field trip. Has the man who bills himself as an antidote to France’s far-right gone too far?

  • Ismail MANSOURI, National Secretary, Socialist Party youth movement
  • Laurent PINSOLLE, Spokesperson for "Debout La République"
  • Nicholas VINOCUR, Political correspondent for Reuters in Paris
  • Matthieu TARDIS, General Secretary, Migrants' Association "France Terre d'Asile"
