Franck Riester believes that “very serious for Benjamin Griveaux and his family, very serious for democracy“. According to him, “this privacy should not be compromised“. It highlights the”legal levers [qui] exist to urgently remove from the judge content that would be inconsistent with respect for privacy“The minister ensures that the majority is doing everything to make platforms aware of their responsibilities, in particular by citing Laëtitia Avia's (LREM) bill on hateful content or the law on fake news. But on the web,”it is up to each and everyone to be vigilant“, warns Franck Riester.
