4 French officers indicted, 3 placed on pre-trial detention after black music producer brutally beaten in Paris

The Paris prosecutor’s office has announced the indictment of the cops accused of beating black music producer Michel Zecler. Three of the four officers will remain detained before trial.

The group are facing accusations they beat Zecler at a recording studio while voicing racial remarks. Footage of the altercation was published online, earning condemnations from activists and even French President Emmanuel Macron, who said the images should “shame us all.”

Prosecutor Remy Heitz announced pretrial detainment for three of the four officers during a press conference on Sunday, to prevent “consultation” between them, as well as potential intimidation of witnesses.
