Earlier tonight we reported on the arrest of Eric Drouet, a leader of the Yellow Vest movement in France. Prosecutors have now decided that Mr. Drouet will appear in court next month to face two separate charges.

|00:00||The Prosecutor General informs us that it was decided that two procedures would be joined.|
|00:03||First the one from the last night,|
|00:08||January 2; I remind you that Eric Drouet was put under temporary arrest for organizing|
|00:11||a non-declared rally. When it’s not|
|00:16||declared, it could… IT IS being considered as a criminal offense; therefore|
|00:19||this procedure and the another procedure , which was already…|
|00:24||which already concerned Eric Drouet, from December 22 2018,|
|00:28||the day of Act Six of the Yellow Vests. On that day Eric Drouet was arrested|
|00:32||with a wooden stick, a wooden baton — the Prosecutor General has specified,|
|00:36||and he was put under a temporary arrest for “carrying a weapon” for “participation in a group|
|00:42||with the intention of committing violence” and for “organizing a non-declared rally”.|
|00:45||The Prosecutor General decided to join those two different procedures, and to summon him|
|00:52||on February 15 at 9am before the Criminal Court of Paris to answer|
|00:57||for the “act of organizing of a public rally without authorization”.
