The lawyers of French President Emmanuel Macron are suing a man who depicted the head of state as Adolf Hitler, amid recent protests opposing France’s health pass and Covid vaccine restrictions.

Michel-Ange Flori, a billboard owner from the southern French region of Var, reported that he was shocked by the charges, which he describes as a breach of his right to freedom of expression.

On Wednesday evening, Flori tweeted: “I have just learned that I will be heard at the Toulon police station tomorrow upon a complaint from the president of the republic.”

He highlighted the irony of the charges, making reference to France’s controversial history of liberalism and freedom of expression: “So in ‘Macronia’ we can make fun of the prophet’s ass – it’s satire – but to make the president look like a dictator it’s blasphemy.” Flori’s remarks reference the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s controversial depiction of the prophet Mohammed.
