What do we know about the violent clashes that took place in Dijon ?

Question asked by Dzamil the 15/06/2020


Your question is about the events that took place this weekend on 13 and 14 June in Dijon and around, in the Burgundy region. On social networks, flocking of multiple videos showing violent clashes.

Several pictures show some of the bands who wander in the city centre and take it to a shisha bar, the Black Pearl, located in the boulevard de la Trémouille, not far from the Republic square.

On some videos, posted online Sunday, including several dozen men are visible. They compete, sometimes with bare hands, sometimes by means of iron bars.

Other, filmed by witnesses from different angles, show a car seeming to rush right on a mob before the aircraft struck an earth-full and from in barrels, at very high speed.

On videos more graphics (that CheckNews has chosen not to relay), we can see the car stopped, just after the accident. The driver, dead, is, in part, défenestré. His hands are in blood.

On Twitter, in the comments, reference is made repeatedly to clashes “between the Chechens and dealers“.

All these scenes fit effectively in a global context of clashes that went on for several days. The prefecture of Côte-d’or, contacted by CheckNewsconfirms that these events are likely related to settlements of accounts : “The weekend that has just ended has been marked by violence committed in the agglomeration of dijon, france, it seems, in the context of a settlement of accounts between members of the chechen community in France and the residents of the district of Grésilles and other districts of the metropolis-dijon”, she says.


The prefect “condemns these behaviors […] with the greatest firmness” and indicates that a judicial investigation is now open.

Eric Mathais, the chief prosecutor of Dijon, has not responded to the demands of CheckNews. But as of this weekend, in the local press, the vice-prosecutor was state ten wounded, “some seriously”, during the descent to the shisha bar on the Friday night. The prosecution also confirms that injured by bullets, Saturday night, always in Dijon.

This Monday, he responded to our confreres from France Blue. About the driver involved in an accident, it confirms that the latter is currently in hospital in a serious condition. The scene took place in the district of Grésilles, in the north-east of Dijon on Sunday night. The prosecutor explains : “We were live at the command center of the police, we saw on the cameras these 140 people from the chechen community gathered on the market square to Grésilles. And there was a vehicle that came close, which, indeed, at a given moment sketched a movement to rush in the crowd, then there was this accident.”

In this interview, the attorney also confirms the opening of an investigation entrusted to the directorate for interregional judicial police and urban security, Dijon, france. But, he said, no arrest has yet taken place at the present time. The priority, according to him, is to secure the situation in order to avoid the worst.

About facts, it evokes a “drift community on racism. These are apparently members of the chechen community who have called on social networks from Friday to avenge the violence committed on a young by people from the community in the maghreb. Three nights in a row, it was therefore up to 140 people who come to Dijon in this context”.

Violence in Nice

According to France 3 Provence-Alpes-Côte d’azur, this violence is are now exported up to Nice, where shots were recorded in the district of Chestnuts, in the night of Sunday to Monday. Again, a video shows the shot. Nice Morning indicates that three men of chechen origin had been injured and that six people are currently in police custody.

For the time being, to Dijon, the authorities are trying to avoid escalation. The prefecture said that on Monday evening still, “a squadron of gendarmes mobiles will be deployed on the ground.” The day before, a half-section of SRC and reinforcements of the TRAY were on the ground.

A Brussels of 19 years, accusing the forces of the order of the have “typed” and “insulting” on the sidelines of an event in tribute to George Floyd in the belgian capital on June 7, 2020.

Priority neighbourhood : what is the future for youth after school ?

The area of residence of high school graduates has there been an impact on their studies and their professional integration ? Clearly yes, according to a recent study by the Center for studies and research on qualifications.

The analysts have dissected the trajectories of the 19 500 young people leaving school in 2013, who lived in a priority neighbourhood of the city (social difficulties). Their conclusion ? There are strong disparities with the neighbouring districts, even in the blurring effects related to the social membership (origin, occupations of parents).

“These young people are more oriented towards the professional way : 38 % have a bac pro) and 38% bac general, compared to 23 % and 54 % for those of the other districts “, says Mélanie Vignale, coauthor of the study. The bac pro in the pocket, they are more likely to continue their studies, “no doubt to compensate for the fact of not having obtained the desired orientation “.

45 % leave the university without a degree

The only problem is that at the university, 45 % leave without a degree (compared to 29 % in other areas). “They apply to equality in BTS and license, but only a third is accepted in BTS. However, graduates of pro are less prepared at the university. “

This explains why 37 % of them are unemployed three years after training (compared to 22 % for those in the surrounding areas). Only 53 % become managers or intermediate professions (against 63 %).

“To an equivalent degree, the effect of district play at least, timer Melanie Vignale. It must therefore support these young people to make them aware of the training courses. For example, among high school graduates general, they are only 14 % to request a class, prep, against 22 % for the other districts. “


New violence in the district of Grésilles in Dijon

Dijon was once again prey to tensions Monday, June 15, in the evening. The police had to disperse a crowd of men wearing balaclavas and armed wanting to defend their neighbourhood after three punitive expeditions carried out by members of the chechen community in the course of the weekend.

For the fourth night in a row, in a town little accustomed to this kind of disorder, dozens of people armed with iron bars and handguns, which no one knows if they are fake or not, gathered on Monday in the district Grésilles.

These men, wearing balaclavas for the most part, have fired into the air, destroyed surveillance cameras, and set fire to garbage cans and vehicles.

A team of journalists assaulted

A team of journalists from France 3 “has been taking part in and his vehicle caillassé “ and a driver has been “assaulted and his vehicle was thrown against a barricade of burning “according to the prefecture.

60 gendarmes mobiles, a quarantine of CRS and reinforcements of the brigade, tasked with fighting crime (BAC), as well as of the RAID, have intervened in order to put an end to the violence. “A hundred opponents “ were then confronted by the forces of order, said the prefect of Côte d’or Bernard Schmeltz.

The intervention ended in the evening, leaving a few charred carcasses of garbage bins and vehicles in the area once again became calm. Four people have been arrested, according to the prefecture.

The ongoing investigations

According to the prefect Schmeltz, the alleged harasser did not belong to the chechen community, unlike these last three days where several tens or even hundreds of them had gathered in the city centre of Dijon and then to Grésilles to carry out targeted attacks in an apparent settling of accounts.

“We have not identified any presence outside, what are people from Dijon “assured Bernard Schmeltz regarding people gathered on Monday evening. Sources in police have specified that these new attacks were the result of people wanting to defend their “territory “ against the repeated incursions of the Chechens.

The prefect has defended its policy of non-intervention. “Frame and circle to avoid the abuses : it was the only strategy to be practicable “, he said. “The population does not have in any case been discontinued “was it insured “the offences shall be sanctioned from surveys “.

The ministry of the interior promises a response ” farm “

In the evening, the ministry of the interior ruled “ineligible “ the “violent public disorder and acts of intimidation “ in recent days, promising “a firm response “. The secretary of State for the interior, Laurent Nunez, arrived on the ground Tuesday, according to the local daily newspaper The Public Good.
