"The authorities and the police deny it even today. They deny that it exists and all different groups support each other in denying, what the others were doing. We had called the National Police General Inspection before this report was released and they basically said that maybe these situations happened, but there was no actual proof. They basically said that they did not want to be bothered with such allegations despite the testimonies," an Auberge des Migrants representative told Sputnik.
The charity added that taking into account the authorities' stance on the topic, it did not expect that an investigation would be launched into the issue of the police bullying of volunteers.
On Wednesday, the charity, together with French Utopia56 and Refugee Info Bus NGOs and the UK Help Refugees charity, released a report about nearly 650 cases of police harassment of aid workers in Calais and its surroundings between November 1, 2017, and July 1.
