'The wall of jerks'
Issued on: Modified:
A notice board causes a political storm. A "mur des cons" or "wall of jerks" has been filmed in the offices of a trade union representing a third of magistrates in France. While the union - the Syndicat de la Magistrature - is known to be left-wing, right-wing politicians are furious because the "wall of jerks" lampoons figures on the right, including Nicolas Sarkozy and a number of his allies. The question being asked is whether French justice is impartial.
