Plenary assembly of July 19th, 2017

The CSA was seized following the diffusion on C8, on June 24th, 2017 in the emission Hello the land ones, of remarks made by a humorist within the framework of the chronicle “Guillon 2017”. The plaintiffs considered it regrettable that a joke was carried out about the assassination of a child intervened in 1984. 

After examination of the litigious sequence, the Council noted that the chronicle during which the remarks were made was clearly identified like concerning the entertainment and which its humorous character rose logically from its presentation by the presenter as well as services carried out by the humorist. In addition, it is of constant jurisprudence that the humorist is supposed to divert reality in order to carry a shifted and satirical glance, necessarily using of a greater freedom of tone.

It is arisen from the whole of these elements that the character diverting and humorous of this sequence was to prevail, when well even its contents could prove shocking. 

Under these conditions, the CSA did not belong to failure of the chain to his obligations as regards respect to the rights and freedoms.
