Publication date: Friday, March 30, 2018
Plenary assembly of November 8th, 2017

The CSA was seized about a report presenting of the techniques of flight and of the equipment offered for sale on Internet, intended to facilitate the flight of luggage, diffused on July 28th, 2017 in the emission Inquires of action into W9. It was reproached the report for revealing how in particular to open a bag “ using a pen, then to close it without leaving traces ” or using special keys employees by “ the American authorities in order to open suspect luggage ”. The amount of the flights accomplished thanks to these techniques would have been also revealed.

The article 1st of the law n°86-1067 of September 30th, 1986 relating to the freedom of communication provides that: “ The communication with the public by electronic way is free. The exercise of this freedom can be limited only in necessary measurement (…) by the safeguard of the public order, (…)

After examination of the litigious report, the Council considered that it presented a risk of incentive to unpatriotique and punishable behaviors while presenting in a precise way of the techniques of flight of easily reproducible luggage. The emission also informed the public on the sale of special keys of the air safety whose possession also allows the commission of punishable acts. The CSA considered thus that the program in its globality expressed a kindness with regard to this form of delinquency. 

The chain was firmly recalled to the need in the future for respecting the terms of the article 1st of the law of September 30th, 1986.
