Not enough finance for security at Béziers feria

LanguedocLiving, Aug 12

Emmanuelle Ménard, National Front representative in Hérault is worried about the lack of financial contribution from the State for the security of the Béziers Feria.

In a letter sent on August 11 to the Minister of the Interior, Emmanuelle Ménard has reminded the Minister that the guarantee of public order is the responsibility of the State.

The deputy from Hérault pointed out that the Feria de Béziers is a major event that celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year, and attracts more than 700,000 people in the city over the period.

The member also said that the city already bears a heavy financial cost, providing nearly 140 security officers and as many municipal police and city guards engaged throughout the period of the Féria, which represents a budget of nearly €800,000 euros for Béziers.

In conclusion, Emmanuelle Ménard expressed her deepest concern for the future of events such as the Féria de Béziers, a major event in the life of the city, and calls on the Minister of the Interior to take a stand as soon as possible to reassure the local authorities concerned.
