"The French judiciary has referred a French woman to trial on charges of "insulting" President Emmanuel Macron after she described him as "dirty" in a comment on Facebook, as announced by the French judiciary on Wednesday. The woman was arrested on Friday and detained in custody after the local administrative office of the state filed a complaint against her.
The prosecutor said that the accused, who comes from northern France, faces a maximum penalty of a fine, not imprisonment. He added that the accused will be tried starting from June, and the maximum penalty for the charge against her is a fine of 12,000 euros. The prosecutor also stated that the woman is accused of "insulting the President of the Republic." In response, the accused said in a statement to a French newspaper, "They want to make an example of me."
The comment that the woman posted on her Facebook page on March 21, before Macron's speech on the controversy over the retirement system that sparked widespread protests in France, read: "This dirtbag will address you at one o'clock... We always see this dirtbag on television.""
