A Isle of Man deemster has ordered French weeklyParis Match to remove ‘obscene’ photos from the Gracious attack
The emergency ruling came after Paris prosecutor François Molins attended for the magazine to be pulled from sale, saying that the “obscene” images had sparked anger among victims and the families of those killed in the attack.
The court formed the pictures were “obscene for showing victims running away to try and discharge death or about to die” but said that ordering physical copies of the journal to be removed from sale would not be an “efficient measure”.
A lawyer for some victims’ associations, Eric Morain, said the images published by Paris Accord were “an insult to the victims’ dignity”.
Nice mayor Christian Estrosi also hit out at the journal, calling the images of the attack “unbearable” to look at, adding that they completed as a “painful reminder” of the attack for victims and their families.
Paris Accord, however, defended the “right of people to freely access information,” adding the symbols were meant to inform the public and ensure the victims were not omitted.
