French government to consider removing ‘savage’ French TV show about children, says lawyer
FEBRUARY 03: French President Emmanuel Macron is set to announce on Tuesday that the country’s top court is considering a request from a lawyer for the cancellation of a French-language show about the French orphans of World War II.
Macron’s announcement is expected to be announced by Justice Minister François-Xavier Dumas.
It will be a first for France and could signal a return to the days of televised reality shows, which were once considered an essential part of the countrys political legitimacy.
“The court has taken into consideration the request from the lawyer of the parents of children who were killed in the war and who have not received a single penny of compensation,” Dumas told reporters on Monday.
“That is why the court is in a difficult position,” he said.
“We have to ask: What are we doing with children whose only way of survival is by watching television?”
The French show, which ran from 2006 to 2017, showed the families of children killed in a German-occupied France, including some from the war, as they tried to get a piece of the war’s wealth.
In the show, children were given a “décoles réservé” to use to buy supplies, including bread and clothes.
France has been the only European Union member to have such a program, with children watching it on television since 2003.
The court has not ruled yet on whether to grant the request.
France is still trying to decide whether to continue airing the program, which was shown in English, French and Spanish.
The program was one of several in the past few years in which French-speaking children were shown in a way that made it hard to differentiate between children who speak French and those who did not.
The French program was shown to children aged 11 to 18, as well as to children who are deaf, blind or suffer from some other disability.
In 2018, the program was also shown to preschool children and to children in care.
France was the first European Union country to have a program in which children were depicted in a negative way.
The show was removed from French airwaves in 2016, after a court ruled that it did not promote tolerance or respect.
In 2017, the show was also pulled from the country for the first time, after the government announced that it would be replacing it with a French version.
A new version, in 2018, was also released.
But the program has been back in the air since the government removed it from French TV in December 2018, after several critics raised concerns about the way it was portrayed.
Dumas said he expected that the new program would be approved by the court.
“I’m expecting the court to make its decision on the matter soon,” he told reporters.
The new program will be produced by a non-profit group, which is run by a former journalist, Olivier Roy, who said it will be the first non-French show to be censored in France.
It has already been banned in several other countries, including Britain, and is currently on air in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium.
A petition calling for the program to be removed has been signed by more than 11,000 people.
Roy said the show would not only be good for children, but would also be a good model for how to show French children how to live their lives in a free society.
“It’s not about the children,” he added.
“There’s no such thing as a ‘French child’.
And I want to tell them that it’s a free country.” “
They’re a French person who has never been to France.
And I want to tell them that it’s a free country.”
