In his explanation, Law Professor Yves Strickler presented me with a pertinent reference from a legal expert text, emphasizing key aspects:
The excerpt details the list of individuals targeted by Article 432-1 (to obstruct the execution of the law) of the French Criminal Code, a list that is not exhaustive but primarily includes:
- High-ranking representatives of the State and local authorities, such as Ministers, Junior Ministers, and Under Junior Ministers;
- Directors and heads of departments of various ministries;
- Mayors and their deputies.
It is emphasized that the President of the Republic stands at the top of this hierarchy, with the fundamental responsibility of ensuring the enactment of laws through their promulgation.
The text also enumerates other figures of authority, such as:
- Magistrates, whether belonging to the judicial or administrative order.
However, an important distinction is made: Article 432-1 does not apply to lower-ranking officials, those who assist the listed authorities in managing administrative or judicial affairs or in preparing dossiers, provided they do not have the power to make independent decisions.Click on this link to visualize the original email: 2017-07-16_1843_0800_yves-strickler_Redacted.pdf
